These eyeglass cases are quick and easy, and they make a great gift! In addition to glasses, they will also hold a rotary cutter—great for traveling quilters.

Fabric note: I used Pepper Cory‘s Brushstrokes line (not Peppered Plaids) for the background fabric in these projects. The colors I used are Tangerine, Horizon Blue, and Sprout. They have a good hand, they are neither too thick nor too thin.

I also love her Peppered Cottons. The warp and weft threads are different colors which gives the fabric depth. These, too, are a very nice weight to work with.

You can follow along on Facebook during the 24-hour event on September 19-20 to see stories, pictures of events, and to add to the count of the pillowcases donated.

I drew the pattern; Linda chose the fabrics and made it so you have her to thank for the perky colors!

This quilt makes me think of colorful little beach houses. It is happy and sunny! And AP&Q took amazing photos, as always :-).

American Patchwork and Quilting always makes up the projects in the magazine in more than one colorway. The alternate versions of this quilt are made from Benartex and Shannon fabrics. You’ll need to look at the magazine to see them… I haven’t even seen them yet!
