On My Sewing Table This Morning

Friday seems to be my day to update you on what's going on in the sewing room!

This week I have been working on some pillow shams to go with the Farmhouse Magic quilt. You may remember that this quilt was originally meant to be a wedding gift and then as it progressed I wasn't sure it was suitable as a gift and I decided to keep it. Well, the quilt turned out really nice and I decided to give it to the newly wed couple (one year), who love it. The bride asked if I could make matching pillow shams, so that has been my project this week.

These fabrics are the same as the backing fabric, outer border and binding fabric used in the quilt.

A close up of the quilt:

The meandering quilting on the shams is the same as that used on the quilt.

The shams have an overlapping back so a standard pillow can be inserted.

The shams require making a quilt sandwich and pin basting, just like a big quilt, but MUCH EASIER!

Some quilting is going on this week in my sewing room, too. Please visit my quilting blog, ANGEL SCRAPS QUILTING, for quilting updates.

Another beautiful project Debbie, your quilting skills are awesome. I need to get moving on several of the tops that I have completed, after all I can't improve if I don't even practice, LOL.

The quilt is one of my favorites and the shams are beautiful.

I'm sure your newlywed friends love the quilt, and the shams suit it so well!
