Well, finally!! :-) I made 7 pillowcases this past week--5 will be used as Christmas gifts and 2 will be future gifts. And I have 1 QOV quilted--so the backing was added to yardage used. It will be mailed as soon as I receive an address. I have the 2nd QOV ready to put on the longarm. I'm seriously low on fabric I can use for QOVs, including fabric to back these quilts. Seems that most of my backing fabric yardage is floral--and I hate to use that on patriotic quilts. So, I need to bask in reaching my goal of 100 yards net usage before I mess up my stats by buying more patriotic yardage!!
I used the "sausage" method on the pillowcases--really like having all seams enclosed (and not getting out my serger!). The instructions I was using was 24-12-2 dimensions, but I changed the 2 to 1.5 for the accent and like the smaller accent better.
We have had some snow--but not nearly enough! Roads were icy when we went to church yesterday, and temperatures have dropped drastically. Last week we were in the high 30's--this morning it was 2 degrees when I got up at about 6:30. The wood fire burning in the fireplace feels sooooooo good!
