Make a Pillowcase, Make a Difference

In my family my mother is the artistic talent. Since I was a child she sewed everything from doll clothes, our clothes, curtains, placemats, wall hangings, and the list goes on and on. In the past few years, she has made countless quilts. Thank goodness for her talent, otherwise my walls would be quite bare and I wouldn't have any cozy quilts to snuggle up in during the New England winters.

Now, mom is part of the One Million Pillowcase Challenge making pillowcases to make a difference.

Bernina and other vendors have partnered with American Patchwork & Quilting to sponsor the One Million Pillowcase Challenge a year-long national challenge to create and donate one million pillowcases to local charities.

Every pillowcase can help someone in your community. A pillowcase can provide comfort for a cancer patient, hope for a foster child, encouragement for a battered woman, or beauty for a nursing home resident.

Check out some of the pictures of mom's pretty pillowcases.
This one is full of sunshine.

I'm a scuba diver and I found this material a while back, fell in love with it, and picked it up for mom. Now she's made it into something that will have a kid dreaming of scuba diving.

Or how about these for a wanna-be firefighter.
