Yes, I finished these Friday, but it never quit snowing all day! It’s been flurying a lot today, too, but I’m the crazy lady who’s been out there with the camera.
These pretty pillow covers are now lending a touch of spring to my livingroom. The colors match one of my chairs and the Spring Strings quilt. As always, I used tons of stings and can’t tell any difference in my containers. If I never bought fabric again, I could make quilts for quite a while…
I used the hidden zipper technique from Sew Mama Sew. I’m getting pretty good at it.
After I had changed out the pillow covers, I washed the Christmas ones. Now, I had pre-washed those fabrics, and washed them when they were first finished, AND I used Color Catchers again yesterday, and I still had some bleeding from the green fabric. I don’t think it ruins them. I guess it will wash out over the years. Hmmm.
Linking up with Finish It Up Friday on Crazy Mom Quilts.

Your new pillowcases are lovely. I like the design definition given by the darker strip in each block. Sorely that extra color in your Christmas pillowcases will eventually wash out.
