Harvesting Quilt Fabric from Pillow Cases: Part 3
The top of the pillowcase quilt is done. I really like the way it turned out, and at 71 x 71" it's a pretty good size. I used almost all of the 4-patch blocks I made at the beginning of this project, and two pillowcases were incorporated into the neutral fabric of this quilt.
The colored strips for the blocks and borders came out of the scrap drawer. I thought I had used a lot of strips, but the drawer is, somehow, still pretty full
There is a "where's Waldo?" in this quilt. If you look at the second row in the photo above, you can see that some of the blocks jumped into their own version of order. When I caught this, I decided to leave it as is. It's my little joke to see if anyone notices.
Here are a few more pillowcases waiting for inspiration to transform them into something new. In the meantime, I'm going to be looking through my closet to find a batt and some backing fabric for the finished top.
