I’m very happy with my pretty pillowcase! I made it using fabric scraps alone. The red and blue/turquoise combination works quite well, don’t you think?
The circles were interfaced separately and meticulously hand-stitched (!!!) to the patchwork “quilt sandwich”. My fingers are not used to so much hand-quilting! Note to self: use a thimble. And find a pattern suitable for machine-quilting! I gave up trying to machine-applique along the borders of the circle perfectly…
