Pillowcase Service Project



When I retired, I joined a quilt club in a neighboring town.  This group not only works on their own individual projects but does many service projects.  Since we live close to several hospitals, we started making pillowcases and super hero capes for kids going through chemotherapy and don’t have a lot of choices in their lives.  We try to make them fun with super hero fabrics or other fun fabrics.  I often make my pillowcases with flannel fabric which is soft and there are lots of fun prints.  If I buy one yard  each of two coordinating fabrics I can make two pillowcases with opposite fabrics on base and band.  The pattern I use has no raw seams so the pillowcases will wash and dry easily and they wear well.  I’ve shown two examples: one is Batman, the other is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
