    I'd like to thank all of you that gave me such a nice welcome back. It's nice to know I was missed. You are all so sweet.

    I had two blocks left from my granddaughter's quilt and I just had to do something with them so.........first thing this morning, I decided to make a pillow case, no matter what size it would be finished. Lucky me, it came out to a perfect standard sized pillow case. I've never made one before but I figured, how hard can it be? I could have taken a little extra planning time and made it a little more special but I need to get back to some housework, etc. I think it turned out okay.
    I used some of the binding fabric to add to the open end to finish it off.

    Welcome back. Just love the colors in your quilt and you did such beautiful work as always. Love the idea of making a pillow case out of leftover blocks. You can always store the quilt in it when it's not in use. Really neat quilt.

    what a cute "Set" you ahve now!!! you know, those extra blocks might have been made "just in case" something went wrong and had to get rid of a block...you know how sometimes ....things... just happen. I am so happy that is all worked out for you though...with a standard pillow size and all. We should all get that lucky more often! lol

    I am glad you found your way back to the board, jaque. It always makes me feel good to know one more person from nevada is here. And such a talented lady to boot!

    I really like your idea of using the extra blocks up as pillow cases. Very nice!
