More Christmas gift sewing - pillow shams to coordinate with the Amish with a Twist quilt I finished for my mother in June :)
Luckily I had some extra bits of all the solids used in the quilt, so I opted for a simple design of 2.5" finished squares with a Kona Snow border.
40 squares per pillow...
A simple crosshatch quilting design and a raspberry binding finish these standard sized shams perfectly. They measure approximately 21" x 27". The backings have a simple envelope closure in Kona Snow.
And yes, she loved them! When she gets the filler pillow forms she promised to send me a photo of the whole ensemble so I'll share that later.
In other Christmas gift news, one of my SILs told her husband that they need to purchase a new sofa to coordinate with the quilt I made for her - haha!. Have you ever redecorated a room around one of your quilts?
