Quilt Guild ConKerrs Cancer One Pillowcase at a Time, October 16, 2010
The Golden Needle/Sewing Basket allowed us to use their class space to make pillowcases for Children's Hospital as part of the ConKerr Cancer national pillowcase effort. Darla Snider bravely followed the directions for the hot-dog method of making a pillowcase on her own, and then taught the rest of us how. Thanks, Darla, for your instruction. Thanks to the ladies who made or brought pillowcases, and a huge thank you to the Golden Needle/Sewing Basket for being our host.

One of the more exciting parts for me was that I needed to wash most of them when I took them home. I started trying to sort colors, but that was impossible due to all the wild and cheerful colors. In the end I threw them all together in the washer and hoped I would not be removing 14 mud colored pillowcases from the washer. It all turned out well.

Vickie Howard dropped another four pillowcases through my door slot, and Darla has two more to make. We kept Darla so busy that she could not sew up all her fabric while we were there. So far we have 23 pillowcases to send to the children. Thanks to Joan whose camera we used.
