Your nephew will love those!

Hmm. Maybe the boys need Star Wars pillowcases. I might have to read your instructions more thoroughly and give at a whack sometime!


You have one very spoilt nephew!!


Clever! I hope I can access these instructions when I'm ready to make these.


I love them! Just learned how to make cases at a retreat earlier this month...why ever make a quilt without a matching case from now on? Great job!


I'm always attracted to music-themed fabrics. These pillowcases are a great way to use them.


It's great to meet another quilter! And, as a music teacher, I LOVE that fabric! Too cool!

God bless :)

These are wonderful. Great idea to make him matching pillowcases. Lucky boy!

Hey Vicki!
I bought a premade silk charmeuse pillow "blank" from Dharma a couple of years ago and dyed it for my Mom. Unfortunately now that she is in a Skilled Care Home where all of the laundry sort of gets mixed up, she doesn't want to use the pretty silk pillowcase for fear it will get lost. So, I have inherited it! Have you slept on silk charmeuse? It is a dream come true! I am going to make some of my own pillowcases out of silk yardage that I dye. Thanks for the pattern!

I never knew about the weaving of serger tails back through the seam for more durable washing. Great tip, thanks! :D


I have seen this pattern type before, and I have had it explained to me, etc... BUT... I could never get it right or figure it out... Until now!! Thank you so very much for your detailed instructions and pictures - FINALLY I can make pillow cases like that!!

Vicki, I love your choice of fabrics. Very cool for a young man -- your nephew will love those pillowcases! Dianne B. in England


Thanks for providing such clear instructions! My mom taught me how to do this, but I couldn't remember all the steps and the measurements. This is perfect!

Another great tutorial from you - you are such a good teacher!
