I’ve backed a lot of my recent quilts with Minkee (soft & cuddly polyester fleece) which my kids are absolutely loving. So this week’s project was to make a pair of Snugglycases for Anna, who’s turning 12 later this week.

Snugglycases on Anna's bed

 A snugglycase is just a pillowcase made from Minkee, with a cotton band (instructions included in Hopscotch from Bits ‘n Pieces). I chose lime dot Minkee and Kona white, which looks terrific in her colorful bedroom.  The quilt on the bed was a project from last year, the pattern is Sliced Fruit from Cherry House quilts, modified to fit a twin size bed, made with bright Kona solids on a crisp white background.

I’ll be in action at the Ottawa quilt show later this week, setting up on Thursday and three full days at the show. It won’t leave much time for sewing, but I am going to try and make a pair of Snugglycases for Alex who turns 14 later this month (Bear Brown for him.) I hope to have some pics from the show to share next week.
