Chances are if you’ve been into your local quilt shop or reading American Patchwork & Quilting (AP&Q) lately, you’ve heard about the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge. It’s all part of AP&Q’s program to donate 1 million pillowcases to local charities near you in 2010. Each participating quilt shop will have free patterns (or you can download the patterns online here), fabric kits, and serve as a drop off location for your finished pillowcases. The shops will donate to local charities, so click here to find a participating shop near you.
We are participating by sponsoring the challenge, and making up three pillowcases in our fabrics each quarter. The first three of twelve pillowcases are on the AP&Q website now.
So take the challenge today, and be sure to explore the AP&Q website. You can upload photos of your pillowcases, get ideas, and connect with others–lots of fun!
