Custom Quilted Pillow Shams | Finished {or Not!} Friday Linky Party!

Welcome to Finished {or Not!} Friday where you can share what you're working on and see what others have been making!

My project to share is two custom quilted pillow shams made to coordinate with a queen size quilt that sold in my quilt shop.

Below is the quilt the pillow shams coordinate with.  The front of the shams is a mini quilt, complete with batting and backing, and the reverse side has an envelope opening, with an extra wide binding.  Once again, I used my favorite quilt book to create the shams.  Click here to read more about that book.  I ♥ this book and have used it more than any other quilting book, hands down.

  1. Hi Myra! Oooh-la-la, those pillow shams and the quilt are just gorgeous. I am thrilled to know you had enough fabric leftover to make the shams. That would have been my worry, although honestly we usually buy more than we need 'just in case' right?! I'll bet your customer was just thrilled to pieces!! ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. Those shams look wonderful! Great to see a finish on your newly returned machine! I know it's been hard at work!

  3. They look great. Love the chevron binding.
