Bonus Block – 1 million Pillowcase Challenge


I remember when the magazine launched this amazing project. A goal to have people all over the world make a pillowcase, donate it, and log that they did to reach 1 Million Pillowcases donated to charity!


They host an annual Sew Along and it’s coming up soon!

On Aug 24 you can join American Patchwork & Quilting & the Splendid Sampler team to sew pillowcases for a huge Million Pillowcase Challenge Blog Hop!


Then the third annual 24-Hour Sew-a-Thon charity event  is held on September 16-17 in quilt shops and quilts across the world (the list so far). Last year, nation-wide, 10,763 pillowcases were made and donated at sew-a-thon events. Help us beat that number!
