1 Million Pillowcase Challenge Blog Hop

Today the Moda Bake Shop is hosting the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge blog hop! Oda May whipped up a pillowcase to share with you.

Hello, Moda Bake Shop readers and blog hoppers! I made my pillowcase using All People Quilt’s free pattern for a basic pillowcase + a few modifications to make it Moda Bake Shop ready. Click here for the basic pillowcase pattern.

The steps below tell you how to modify the cuff of the pillowcase. Use a 1/4” seam for piecing. Assembly seams are 1/2″ as indicated in the basic pillowcase pattern.

3/4 yard fabric for pillowcase body {Bella Solids 9900 73 – Clover used}
4 layer cake squares {Oh Deer! by MoMo used}

Cut your solid fabric to 26.5″ x 41″ as indicated in the basic pillowcase pattern. Cut your width of fabric carefully so that you have two 1.25″ strips from each end. This will be used to piece the cuff.

Cut your 1.25″ strips to lengths of 10″. Sew a strip to one side of three of your layer cake squares (remember, a 1/4″ seam). Press seams. Sew all strips together so there is a solid strip between each layer cake:

Proceed with the rest of the basic pillowcase instructions (use a 1/2″ seam for here on out).

A pretty patchwork pillowcase!
