I'm finally finishing my "Fonthill" quilt from Kaffe Fassett's book, Passionate Patchwork !
I have never made so many half-square triangle pieces!
Last year, as I was working on the quilt, I came across this article in June 2011 Family Circle magazine. About Cynthia Kerr who started a charity making pillow cases for hospitalized children. ConKerr Cancer, One Million Pillow Cases.
In the article she is shown standing in front of a wonderful quilt.....
This week, I bought fabric for 4 pillowcases. ( 3/4 YARD MAIN FABRIC AND 1/3 YARD CONTRAST FOR EACH)
And by following Youtube directions on making the pillow cases, I have 4 ready to send!
[Dogs and cats, Strawberry Shortcake, and small pirates!]
Now, back to reading my library book, Bel Canto by Anne Patchett. A very good read!
