quilt along progress

Well, I am ready to sew the next step of the Happy Quilting quilt along!

I also ordered 2 1/2 yards of this material:

I am going to make pillowcases to match the quilt with this material and put crochet edges on it like on Bee In My Bonnet!  These are SOOO cute!  Love love love them!  I am debating on what color though - maybe the leaf green?  The sashing color in my quilt top is pretty darn close to the blue in the background of this material, so I think that color might not stand out enough.  I'm thinking the green would be nice - or maybe the orange or light red?  I'm not a big fan of yellow or pink.  I am just not a pink kinda gal!


  1. Yay! Great job! I had my lines all drawn but got sick. Still sick but just went down to sew some and the lines disappeared. :( I did use disappearing ink. This is the first time I've had it disappear so quickly. I have to assume it doesn't like the COLD.

    Can't wait to see the pillowcases you make! I've seen those before and I'm so jealous I can't crochet.

  2. I am not sure what quilt you are making but I love the fabrics and I love the idea that you drew 2 lines on your square there... I'll be watching!
