Quick Charity Quilt Series- Easy "Pillowcase" Style Quilts

I was asked to discuss a super easy quick quilt pattern that could be made for charity. I thought I could chat about the pillowcase style quilt. This is more like a big blanket than a quilt. But, it is quick and easy! The nice thing about it is-- it doesn't need binding!

The basics include:
  1. making a quilt sandwich
  2. sewing around the edges
  3. turning right side out
  4. sewing the opening closed
  5. top-stitching
  6. quilting

I have linked to a few methods and examples below.

This one is a cute patchwork style tutorial from lansdownelife blog. Though she did the top in patchwork, you could also use one solid piece, similar to a whole-cloth quilt.

Listed below are some different instructions for making this style quilt.

I found this on http://www.quilterslastresort.com/t249-pillow-case-style-quilts

Yet another example with photos and step-by-step instructions. This one is from bluemoonriver.com's blog http://www.bluemoonriver.com/PillowcaseTurn.pdf.

Here is one last tutorial from Rita at Red Pepper quilts, used with permission. She has a few tutorials for making this style quilt- she refers to them as quilts without binding. http://www.redpepperquilts.com/2011/09/quilt-without-binding-tutorial.html.

I encourage you to try this method and have fun!

  3. When a sheet wares out it is usually in the center, the ends are still strong and has many years of use left silk pillowcase The color and pattern on the pillow should be natural and calm rather than a loud and decorative case
