What a surprise to see this. I am now trying to locate copies of the references in this article. I have found many on eBay and Abebooks. I am still looking for an old issue of "Antique Collecting" August 1978, which has an article by Ada R. Robacker, titled The Patchwork Pillowcase.

PA Patchwork Pillowcases
I am so excited that I just came across some old references to PA Pillowcases. Up to now, I had only seen two articles written on the subject. For the first time, a Google search brought up a reference in the Quilt Index (http://www.quiltindex.org/) to an issue of Quilters Journal, Summer 1979. Perhaps these periodicals were only recently added to the Quilt Index?? This issue contains an article titled Pennsylvania Pillowcases by Patricia Long . AND there is a photo in the article of one of the pillowcases in my collection! This is from the set of PCs with the squirrel pillar print on the back. I blogged about this a while ago.
