Pillowcases Are Done

Here are 6 of the 7 pillowcases I'm making out of the same fabric as in the quilt for my grandson.  Matthew will soon be 18, so his Christmas present this year is a new quilt for his bed and a ton of pilllows!!!! 7 new one's to be exact.lol 
                                            There are six here and I'll make one more white with black with the opposite edge.  It's been a real challenge.  My first machine conked out on me and needs repair, well then I pulled out my Janome Memory Craft 9000 and used it for quite a while, well then it went bonkers.   So we took it to Auburn, but they have no idea how long it will take because they have to go through the company regarding some things on it.   So my husband bought me a new Janome Gem 660 as an early Christmas present.  It sews like a dream.  It's lightweight, only has about 12-20 different stitches on it and sews like a dream!!!  Just like my big Janome.  (when it was working lol)  So between being without a machine, then I had to order the backing and it's going to take longer for that to get here. I totally spaced on that.   I have my granddaughters almost ready to go on the quilting frame and as soon as I do, I can quilt that one.   In the meantime, starting tomorrow I'll be working steadily getting Matthews quilt top done.    Have a good one folks:)

Oh Candi Sweetie...
How beautiful these pillow cases are. I would say that Matthew is going to be over the top thrilled. The colors are both masculine and youthful. I can't wait to see the quilt when you have it finished. I know he will love it.

I bet the grand daughters quilt will be just as lovely. The will never want for warmth will they? You have them covered with love.
So beautiful sweet friend. Thank you for sharing.

Many hugs and much love, Sherry
