As previously shown, I love making pillowcases as gifts. They're quick, easy, practical, and fun. Even if someone's decor doesn't lend itself to fun spurts of color, a pillowcase reflecting their favorite colors or interests is usually welcome.
I found this winter print while searching my stash for something else. It has snowmen talking about quilts, so it's more winter than just Christmas. My grandmother used to quilt a lot - not sure if she still does - so I thought she'd enjoy this. I have no idea how long I've had this or why I bought it, but it's got to be at least four or five years ago. The green contrast was a cotton I purchased a few years ago with the intent to make it into a shirt for my husband, but he didn't like the feel, so there it sat. And then I added red piping for interest - mainly because I had some on hand and didn't want to have to go out to get anything else for a contrast - and I got to use my new piping foot for the first time! I like the way this turned out, and hopefully my grandma will love it.
