Pillowcase Factory Closed!

This week I was determined to get a few more UFO's off my shelves. When I make pillowcases, they are super simple, but I have to set up the serger so I like to make several at a time. This week I made 7! These two I needed the brown flange, so I picked it up at the shop today at lunch so I could get them finished. They match the Pop Parade/Boxed Blessings Quilt I made.

I also picked up a fat quarter of the Chez Moi flowers below to make the top of this pillowcase. I had bought the end of the bolt, so had to settle for a fat quarter, but it worked great and no waste. This will be the "gift wrap" for the snapshots quilt. I now need to get the gift all wrapped up for my friend. I'm getting so excited to give it to her.
The pillowcase factory is closed, well at least for this week! I put the serger away and started cutting out a new quilt I hope to finish this weekend. It's called the 5 & Dime quilt, so we'll see...

I just made my first three pillow cases last week and I was so excited with them! You get way more done that I do.
