  5. Several times I have made pillow covers out of fabric left over from gift quilts. Usually they are just with fancy borders. I hadn't thought of piecing them. Hmmm

  7. Donna, these are wonderful. Thanks for sharing the photos. I love the fabrics in the first one. I think it's amazing that the pieces in the sets weren't separated or one lost at some point along the way.

  8. Oh how beautiiful! Thank you for showing them to us. I dont know why it never occurs to me that they would have had pillow covers like these.... Just never think of it. You have stimulated me to think of making them in the future. Xo
