Howdy! Wednesday is here and it is about time I had something to share!
But first, make sure I am not the only blog you check out on this Work In Progress Wednesday!Click below to see other great stuff linked up at Lee's.
Pillow Fight for a Cause projects. What I am currently working on fits in with the criteria purely by chance. (Don't forget to link up to that, by the way!)
Littlest Miss here is about to be 2 years old. (Wow that went fast!) We are getting ready to set up the toddler bed for her. Big Brother is back in the same room with Bigger Brother, so Littlest Miss gets to have a little girly room all to herself. We already have the perfect quilt thanks to Grandma, but I wanted a pillow sham to finish off the look. Last week I posted about the quilt and the fabric hunt. And I was able to find some yardage! Yay!
This afternoon I made some time to start. Here is where the flying by the seat of my pants comes in. I perused some patterns and tutorials and nothing was exactly what I wanted. So I sort of took hints from here, and tips from there, and got started. I decided that since the quilt is a busy pattern I would keep the sham front simple. And it is.
So far, I have the front pieced, sandwiched and basted.
I had not planned on quilting this at all, just having more of a pillowcase look. But the more I thought about it, the look I wanted was going to need quilting or interfacing. I decided to go with interfacing. But I was out of interfacing. And since I am not a patient person, I switched to quilting. :)
And here we are.
Next up is quilting and then I figure out how to make it a sham.
After I had it pieced, it occurred to me that piping between the 2 fabrics might have been nice, maybe pulling the brown in from the quilt. Oh well. Next time.
Happy WIP day!
