My latest finish is a Daysail pillowcase! My mother has always loved the patriotic colors red, white and blue. When Bonnie & Camille released their "Daysail" collection of fabrics, I knew that I had to make something for my mom with some of them! I haven't had much time to sew lately, due to a move, but I still wanted to make something. I have also wanted to try English paper piecing, so I just combined the two things I wanted to do. I hand stitched all of my hexies together, made the pillowcase using this tutorial. It worked perfectly! I did a lot of this while the twins were napping and I was watching "Friends" for the first time. I still haven't finished all of the seasons, but I thought since they were on Netflix, why not?
I love the simple things that make a statement, so I appliqued the hexagon patch I made onto the sleeve of the pillowcase.
This should have made it to her by the 4th of July, but she ended up getting it for her birthday instead (July 22nd)! I've had to wait to share, because she was on a trip and hadn't opened it yet! Hopefully she will enjoy.
