Autumn Leaf Pillow Shams

One year ago, I shipped this quilt to my customer Diane.  In late August, she contacted me; asking for matching queen-size pillow shams.  I'd never heard of queen-size pillows, and after a couple of back and forths, we established that she wanted them to fit queen-size pillows that were 20 x 30 inches and the shams would have a flange.  She accepted my quote and said she wanted them by next summer.

I had some down time, while I was waiting for supplies for two different projects, so I decided to go ahead and make the shams.

I've made two Autumn Leaf quilts, and the leafs are a bit tricky.  I dug out my notes and got everything cut.  I didn't take any photos of the process, but if you're curious you can look at the old posts about the quilts.

A couple of years ago, I decided to use the front of men's shirts for closures of the pillow backs.  I went to Goodwill and got two men's white dress shirts, they were perfect.

Here are the two pillow shams on my bed.  I don't have queen-size pillows, but you get the idea.  

May your bobbins always be full,
