Welcome to Quilt and Sew Box to Go!

May 27, 2016

1We are so excited about our first box going out! 

We decided that fun springtime pillowcases were in order, so we took the best of all of our spring collections in the shop and came up with 5 lovely selections from Adalee’s Garden, Bunny Garden and Garden Days. 

You won’t know which one you get until you open the box!

PLUS a new Olfa Splash quick change blade Rotary cutter and springtime Wonder Clips a pattern to make the pillowcase with no exposed seams is included too!

 

Springtime Pillowcase with No Exposed Seams

As Marcia made one of the included pillowcases, she snapped some photos for step by step instructions

 

1. You will want to press the accent piece (trimmed to 3 inches) in half with right sides together. Place it with cut edge along one of the cut edges of the main piece(right side up. Place one raw edge of the cuff fabric, wrong side down on top of both.

 2. Use wonder clips to keep all of the raw edges together

3. Roll up the main body of the pillow case…

4. All the way as far as you can up to the clips…

Like this…

5. Now, fold the other raw edge of the pillowcase cuff even with the other raw edges and reposition the clips so all raw edges are even.

6. Take to the sewing machine and sew everything together, I like to do an exaggerated  quarter inch seam to be sure.

7. Pull the pillowcase out through one of the ends!

8. Press from the wrong side to get the edges straight without excess “tucks”

9. Then press from the front side

11

10. Fold WRONG sides together and trim off all selvage edges.

12

11. Now if you have a Bernina – get out the #23 Applique Foot – or a similar foot your brand of machine.

13

12. Set your machine length to 1.0 and width to 3.5 regular zig zag

14

13. Sew along the very edge with the narrow zig zag – this foot has a groove on the bottom that keeps it right on the edge for you REMEMBER wrong sides together

15

It should look something like this:

16

14. Now turn and press with RIGHT sides together

15. Move your needle position all the way over to the left – change to a regular straight stitch.

17

Put the “zig zag” part (kind of looks like piping) stitch down the entire side.

18

16. Now repeat the same process for the top edge of the pillow. 

19

17. Turn and press!  Presto, done and not a single raw edge
