More Christmas in January!

While it was still fresh in my mind, I thought I would get my Christmas Fruitcake pillowcases made!
In just an hour or so (after first getting help from a dear friend while having some "dyslexia" over a portion of the pattern), I had them all made and ready to try on the bed!
The pattern is a freebie from Jackie over at Canton Village Quiltworks!  I made them once before for the Million Pillowcase Challenge and remembered that they were quick, easy and very professionally tailored!  I quickly put them on our bed upstairs.  The bed itself is green, so the Christmas theme quickly pulls together!
Here is my pillow -- green is my favorite color.
Here is Mr. Squash's pillow.  He says when he was a kid his favorite color was blue -- now he's not so sure, but I know he likes red!  For now this will all go back in the linen cupboard.  I feel so great about having a Christmas theme all ready to go for later this year!

If you like these, hop on over to Jackie's and grab the pattern!  It works for any theme or time of year!

I love your quilt and pillowcases! What is that fabric you used on the pillowcases, it's very interesting.

Love them! They look so festive *S*

Gorgeous together. Very rich and delicious Fruitcake--never thought I'd use the word "delicious" and "Fruitcake" in the same sentence but when it's fabric it's a different story. I'll be you can't wait for next Christmas.

This is just so inviting! The pictures looks like it could be in a magazine.

Looks great, I run out of steam when it comes to the pillow cases. Funny how I can make them for others but haven't made any for myself!

Your pillowcases turned out wonderful! They look terrific against that beautiful quilt!

Good idea to make them while you have the quilt done and the fabric.
