    Oh man, that is beautiful. I love the shashing you added, it is perfect with the cases. You have created a treasure.

    Thank you! Now to buy a new bed skirt! The one that is on the bed now looks so dark in the photo but is actually much lighter. But I think a white skirt would look nice.

    I love what you have done with the pillow cases. What a great way to infuse some of your heritage into your home.

    A great way to preserve and display your families work. Hopefully one of your children will express an interest in caring for it when you are done.

    I love your pillowcase quilt. I have been buying pretty embroidered pillowcases at thrift stores because I have wanted to make one of these quilts. I have a problem, though, in that these cases are in good condition except that some are somewhat "dingy" -- not white enough. Can anyone tell me what I can use for soaking and getting them the whitest white, without damaging the fabric, embroidery or crochet? Thanks.

    To be honest, I decided to use regular bleach to whiten mine. Most of my pillowcases were very white but I was worried about two of them. However, after bleaching which did no apparent damage, they were still a bit off colour. When we look at the finished quilt though, they look fine and it's not noticeable at all.

    I have collected old embroidery pillowcases for years wanting to do a quilt. I had one or two loose ideas and like yours too. Will have to play with the ideas. I remember getting these for Christmas from my favorite aunt when I was a little girl many moons/years ago.

    That turned out very nice. I like how you set them and sashed them.

    I absolutely love your quilt. I am a huge fan of old linens and have a collection of embroidered pillow cases that I could use, but none of them are from loved ones. I use old linens for my window valences. I don't have close neighbors, I'm on 25 acres and the closest neighbor is through the woods so I don't need full drapes or curtains. Your quilt will be a great keepsake to pass on through generations to come.
