A FIRST ON FRIDAY
Here is my first ever pillowcase with enclosed seams--the "burrito" method is amazing! This will be for my grandson Steven (13) who plays alto sax with his high school jazz band and loves the color ORANGE!!!!
I have never done enclosed seams before or do I ever do much "utility" quilting. I was so surprised at how easily this went for me....even Helga approves...the only problem was with the final end seam: to sew over the first enclosed seam was pretty bulky...maybe there's a trick to that, too...Dawn are you reading this????
It is super soft...don't even remember where or when (isn't that a song??? hahaha) I bought it.
I am just hoping that the grandson doesn't think it is kind of silly.....we'll see.....his birthday is coming up on Nov 23rd.....fingers crossed (cause if he likes it, then the other 3 will want some, too!!)
And here's that landscape-y border from another print that's eons old....I have SO much of this stuff.
This made my day--hugs, have a superior weekend, Julierose, La Blageuse (first-timer)
