American Patchwork & Quilting is challenging quilters, sewers and crafters to help them reach their goal of donating one million pillowcases to local charities. Many charities can benefit from the donation of a pillowcase and the challenge gives everyone the opportunity to donate and make a difference in their community.
We created 3 kits to participate in the American Patchwork & Quilting 1 million Pillowcase Challenge. Each kit includes the fabric and pattern to make one pillowcase.

Included with our kits is a printed pattern from the American Patchwork & Quilting website. With this “roll up” method, it’s easy to make a pillowcase with no exposed seams for a clean and neat look. Below, you can follow our tutorial, which is based on of the one that’s available at http:/www.allpeoplequilt.com/millionpillowcases/instructions/RollItUp.pdf
Before you start, cut one 10″ x 41″ strip from the border fabric and from the main pillowcase fabric, cut one 26.5″ x 41″ rectangle.
