    My wife asked me today if I had any scraps left from that 1930's bowtie quilt that I made her a few weeks ago. She was wanting to make a pillowcase for her small napping pillow to match the quilt. She and my oldest daughter went shopping this afternoon, so while they were out I thought I'd surprise her and go ahead and whip up the pillowcase for her. Below is the pic of it. It's a simple alternating block pattern and I used the same binding material as what I used on the quilt so they would match. She came home while ago and loved it. :D The blocks are 2.5", and the pillowcase measures 15" x 22.5". I left one end open so it can be removed and washed if necessary. The back looks like the front as well.

    Here's a pic of the quilt that I made a few weeks ago for her:

    Eddie I love it. You have such talent. My husband couldn't put a pillowcase on a pillow let alone make one. Your wife is one lucky lady.

    Eddie, you amaze me!

    By the way, I just bought a new book today I know you'd like. It's called Layer Cake, Jelly Roll and Charm quilts, by the same authors (Lintott) that wrote your other book. You would find enough inspiration in this book to keep you busy for at least another year or two!

    I have that book and love it as much as the original Jelly Rolls book that they did. I think out of all the quilt books I have that those 2 are the absolute best!
