Hooray! I finally finished the pillowcases that I had started at least a year ago. I had found the pattern for these amongst some of my mother-in-law’s things and decided I’d like to make them. Once upon a time I had a pair of light blue pillowcases with cream embroidery that I loved. They’ve become too thin to use anymore. Although the pattern is different, these resemble the unusable pillowcases.


I really like the daisy pattern with all the curlicues.

I’ve started the second Civil War block. There are only 25 square pieces in this block, instead of 45 tiny triangle pieces like the first one! I’m hoping to finish it tonight. I’ll be spending the day with my mom tomorrow, so I won’t get anything done with it then.
