Aly commissioned Euro shams to match her AWESOME new quilt :)
I had a few blocks left over from making the quilt. (This was actually part of the plan so I could make shams.) Aly decided that she wanted each sham to be a different color.
Isn't chain piecing fun... even on a LARGE scale?
These bad boys are about 32" square right now. They will end up being 30" square when they are all finished and put together.
Aly has requested a zipper back. It will be my first attempt and I am REALLY excited about it :)
They are HUGE!
Now I need to quilt the tops of the shams. What motif shall I do? I was going to copy the quilt, but I think I may do each sham differently. Who knows ;D
Monday I was able to get the shams all ready for quilting. Here they are all basted and looking cute in a pile :)
Monday night, I was able to get two of the shams quilted :)
What ever shall I do for the orange one's fmq???
Ps- Tuesday morning I went and ACTUALLY measured the quilted sham tops and they are a generous 34". Apparently, my estimations were a bit conservative!
PPS- HAPPY ELECTION DAY!! Get out and vote! :) We are so blessed to be able to participate in such an important event that not only will shape our nation, but quite literally the world as well :)
