    Good Afternoon All,

    At a recent retreat I was told I should always get extra fabric and make a pillowcase to store my new quilt in. So when giving it as a gift, have a card with the instructions for how to wash it and then indicate it should be rolled and put back in the pillowcase, etc....

    So I was out looking for a tutorial on HOW to machine a pillowcase and found this tutorial from the Missouri Star Quilt Company on Youtube....and all I can say is.......IT'S GENUS....COMPLETELY GENUS! :)

    I was kind intimidated because I have only ever made quilt tops, no other sewing under my belt, and the thought of hems and things scare me. This COMPLETELY my seed. You only have to sew along 3 lines and you get a gorgeous pillowcase!!!

    I know I know....you are thinking I'm posting too many videos as of late. Sorry about that, but I thought this is a great watch for people who wanted to make a pillowcase, but thought it would be difficult to attempt.

    I love this method of making a pillowcase. Found it myself about a month ago.

    I like to make a pillowcase when giving as a gift and use it as the wrapping.

    I have always heard the same thing about making a pillowcase for your quilts. Unfortunately, I haven't always done it.

    Thanks for posting!

    this might be a silly question but if you're supposed to roll the quilt for storage wouldn't you make a tube instead of a rectangle?
