July must be my month because I have gotten several projects finished. This is my Quilt As You Go (QAYG) pillowcase inspired by the QAYG Bags class at Craftsy.
I really like the look and texture of this technique, but was a bit hesitant to start with a tote bag. I thought I would try making a pillowcase using my Denyse Schmidt scraps. The whole thing goes together quite easy and it makes for a very strong fabric. I could easily see myself using this technique to make floor pillows.
I started by making a large piece of QAYG fabric.
Then, I sewed on the pillow lining by stitching in the ditch. You can see from this photo just how much I love to pin baste....not!
I sewed 2 sides together, being sure to enclose the seams so there is no fraying. Lastly, I sewed on the binding.
I loved the way this turned out. Now I just need to find other projects to make using QAYG.
