So, my oldest just qualified to be a member of her high school cheer team. She will be going away to camp this summer and I thought I would make her something she could take with her. She will be getting all kinds of bags and clothing with her team info, which didn't leave much for me to do.
I have really been into sewing lately and last week I found some really cute cheerleader fabric and thought - a pillowcase! The cheerleaders are in many colors, but luckily there were 2 in black and red - just what I need.
I recently bought a quilt pattern called Ruffles by The Pattern Basket and the squares are just the right size to fit the little cheerleaders! I still have to make up the rest so that I can sew them together to make up the case, but since this is my first piecing project I am really excited about how they turned out!
I am still trying to decide if I should line it since there will be raw seams on the inside. It just seems like I should - maybe some thin muslin? I will probably go to my favorite quilt shop here in town and ask their opinion.
