I wish I had taken pictures of the ladies in action but we sewed up a whopping 27 pillowcases. Now each pillowcase takes 1 yard of fabric to make so that is 27 yards of fabric sitting there folks.
We chose to donate them to two local women and children's centers. They were so happy to receive them. It was so fun to see the look of surprise on their faces when I handed them a stack of new freshly washed pillowcases that they could distribute to those in need. It makes me want to make more things to donate. We actually have about 4 quilt tops in our closet that are waiting to be put together so that is next on the list.
If you want to learn more about the One Million Pillowcase challenge go HERE. When I uploaded our contribution to the tally they were around 500 K. They are actually hosting a 24 hour sewathon coming up on September 19. You can look in your area to see if you live near a quilt shop who is hosting one or just sew along at home. If you need fabric, consider checking at your local Goodwill or thrift store, You would be amazed at how much fabric they have there for cheap.
