Two finished so far!  These are the first pillowcases I’ve completed for Quilts of Valor, in conjunction with the Heartstrings Quilt Project Thanksgiving weekend Pillowcase Party.  I’m going to use each of the three patterns listed in my previous post about this project.  These two cases were made with the Bee Happy pattern by Mary Lou Weidman.  I made two small changes, as I wanted these pillowcases to be plenty long enough to hold a good-sized quilt.  I cut the wide band 6.5 inches wide (rather than 4.5 inches), and I cut the narrow band 3.5 inches wide (rather than 2.5 inches).  Finished size is approximately 20 inches by 28.5 inches.  The seams are not enclosed in this pattern, but I have overcast them with a zig-zag stitch to prevent ravelling.  These pillowcases have turned out really well, and I will “Bee Happy” to use this pattern again! 🙂
