American Patchwork & Quilting 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge. I donated pillowcases to the challenge. Click here to learn more!

Since the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge is continuing throughout 2010, and is still an active topic in the blogging world, I decided to look around for pillowcase tutorials and patterns. Whether it’s called the hot dog, sausage, or burrito method (hungry yet?), this seems (seams) to be a very popular and quick method of assembling a pillowcase.

Here are some of the video and written tutorials for the hot dog method:

  • Judy for Quilts of Valor video – using french seams; excellent camera angles make it easy to see all the steps
  • Missouri Star Quilt Co video

If you prefer the traditional, non-tube method, here are some tutorials:

And lastly, some free patterns from the APQ site.

Happy sewing!
