Two Pillow Cases to coordinate with the Irish Plaid Quilt

I was cleaning out the project box from the Irish Plaid Quilt I finished for a Christmas present and decided there were enough bits and pieces of the green fabrics to make the bands for two pillow cases.  There was plenty of the off white fabric for the cases themselves.  There were one and a half WoF strip pieced sections left over, so I only had to piece a half strip more.  I had little bits and pieces cut off the ends of other strips and luckily enough were long enough I could use them to "rail fence" the rest of the second band. The inside of the bands were made with dark green fabric.  The other side of the rail fenced pillow case looks the same as the striped band so if you want matching sides to show you can.


And here is the quilt
they coordinate with.

Here is a link to the Enclosed Seam Pillow Case Tutorial I use.

So, now that I have any empty project bin......

  1. Gorgeous! The Celtic pattern looks so intricate. I like how it looks like white x's at a distance
