While compiling my newsletter last week, I realized that I never shared this Ebb sham in Friedlander fabrics that I made awhile back.
I love making pillow shams for so many reasons. They make great gifts, they are the perfectly sized project for trying something new (i.e. new combo of fabrics, new technique, etc.) and they are a great way to spruce up some part of your house.
With this guy, I wanted to play around with some of the pieces in my friedlander collection, along with some euclid for the background.
Linen makes an excellent background because it’s sturdy.
Sometimes I quilt pillow shams, and other times I don’t. I think it can work either way. But I do like to kick things up a notch by adding piping. Here I used a piece from friedlander lawn. Lawn is really great to use as cording and trim. Its fine-ness makes it super easy to maneuver around corners and edges without adding much bulk.
The back panels were also a great place to make use of this larger print in the collection.
If you haven’t made a pillow sham before, give it a try. They are such a satisfying and fun project to make.
