 Have you heard about the
 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge hosted by American Patchwork & Quilting?
It means so much to a child who is sick or in need. . .Cuddling up with his or her personal pillow has brought comfort to thousands of children already. . .


I first heard about this pillowcase project on Sewing With Nancy a couple of years ago. . .and have enjoyed following the movement ever since. . .I have been inspired and proud to be a part of it. . .Most of all, I love the smiles that break out on recipients faces. . .It makes every hour sewing worthwhile. . .
 
The pillowcases are quick and easy to make. . .Mixing and matching the fabrics is part of the fun. . .Make each pillowcase the same or no two alike. . .Use your creative sewing skills. . .maybe one of your favorite patchwork patterns for the band. . .You are only limited by your imagination.

Choose your own charity for the donation. . .or you may participate through the numerous stores sponsoring their own choice of charities. . .The only thing asked of you is that you record your pillowcases on the One Million Pillowcase Challenge website. . .
