Pillowcase resource

I just found this page from American Patchwork & Quilting with pillowcase patterns.

I also love their tube method for making pillowcases. Fast forward about half way to skip the decorative band stitching if you aren't interested. Here is the pdf to the pattern.

Table runner: destination down under

I made this table runner for a friend of ours who was visiting from Melbourne, Australia. He has earthy colors at his house. I hope this will work out nicely for him. He seemed to really like it when I gave it to him.

The pattern is Fat Quarter Table Runner from Out of the Blue. The fat quarters are some vintage Possibilities prints from one of their garage sales a couple years back. The binding and backing are Moda Stitches on the Oregon Trail from Kansas Troubles Quilters. It's all stash.
