While my sister was here, she said that she wanted to sew something. After I picked my shocked self off the floor, we made a trip to the quilt store to pick up some fabric. She's really into blues and selected this print and solid combo herself. She did all the ironing, pinning (she pins like me - the more the better) and stitched up this pillowcase one morning. I helped with the rotary cutting, just because I wanted to send her home with all the digits she came with.

We used this method for the construction. It is often called the Burrito method, but of course, before I could tell her that, she commented that it kind of felt like she was making a nut roll (such a Daddy's girl!). So, we plowed on with the Nut Roll method and I have to say it came out pretty nicely.

It was the first time she has sewed anything and the first time using a machine, so I think she did do a fantastic job. Aren't you impressed?!
