Pillowcases and more Double T blocks

I've made more Double T blocks -- look at the fabric I found for the zig-zag sashing - it's PERFECT!  I think I have 10 more blocks to go.  So far, they are turning out  PERFECT, every time, thanks to that good ruler by Lazy Girl (previously posted). 


This cute fabric (below) was given to me, but I've had it a long time, wondering what to do with it???  All those darling OWLS are not the easiest to work into a quilt.  However, after making several pillowcases for young foster children, something clicked -- voila!! That fabric  will be PERFECT for another pillowcase.


Here is my latest pillowcase - how long have I had those birdhouses???  I've saved that border, again, wondering what to do with it and lo and behold, it's the PERFECT border for another pillow case!  Do you ever make things for charity and then wish you'd made them for yourself?  I won't be tempted to keep it but it IS pretty cute!

Good choice for your border...love those owls and you are right they will make a great pillowcase. If we love the things we give away maybe someone else with love them as well.

Great pillowcases! Lynn, is correct that if you love something you make someone else will love it, too.

Yes, the border fabric is perfect for your T-blocks.

Oh heck, if you like the pillowcase, keep it (I would). I love love birdhouses and the fabrics are wonderful !!!

Yes, that pillowcase is very cute. The owls will make a great one, too. I have made things for charity that I thought I would love to keep also, but did not. I decided that if I liked it that well, then someone else would, too.

Your double t's are coming along. Hum, I wonder how much old fabric I could move off the shelves if I made more pillow cases. I have a hard time letting stuff go -- I liked it when I bought it and I still like it... time to let it live free in society... lol

That owl fabric would have already been a lap quilt for me. ;-) Boy, you are sure getting a lot done.

I made a Project Linus quilt with some of that owl fabric! I thought it was one of the cuter ones - the owls made a great border. I also had that birdhouse fabric years ago.
