Ooh La La is nearly gone from my stash, and there is only enough left for a baby quilt or pillows.  But don't worry, there is no shortage of delightful fabrics in my stash for more quilts!

My customer gave me freedom with the pillow sham.  Her exact words were, "Surprise me! :) ".  My reply to her was, "Oh, you do know how to make a quilter happy by letting her make it how she envisions it!!"  
I had fun making it work with the larger pieces of Ooh La La that I had on hand.  I used one of my favorite go-to quilt books, Shams With Style, as a guide for making the pillow sham.  I like having all of the figuring done for me so I can just cut and sew without a whole lot of thinking!  There are tons of options in the book, including bound pillows, flanged pillows, envelope backed pillows, tied edge pillows in all sizes from toss to king.

The front is quilted on the diagonal on top of a layer of fusible fleece.  I have never used fusible fleece before, and I now ♥ it!  It is so nice to use instead of quilting with a layer of batting and muslin for backing.  I can see why purse patterns call for fusible fleece.  
The edge of the sham is bound like a quilt with extra-wide binding as a nice accent.  The binding started out 3-1/2" wide!  I used the same striped fabric for the sham binding as is on the quilt.
