    Oh how lovely ... what a treasure you have created.

    Please tell us more of the story behind these pillowcases!!
    Are these family heirlooms?
    Or ones you had in your linen closet?
    Is this your quilt to keep and enjoy?
    etc.

    It is wonderful - it is a great way to keep them around. I used to make everyone embroidered pillow cases. My eldest sister and mom loved them.

    This is fabulous! A brilliant way to preserve vintage goods. Your quilting sets each block off perfectly. Now I want to make one too!

    Very pretty and a great way to repurpose embroidery pillowcases.
