Everglade Quilt Shams

I seem to have a thing with pillow shams, which was certainly noticeable after finishing up these 3 Everglade Quilt shams that I eagerly made and used in my booth at Spring Quilt Market. (For anyone counting, I had 5 pillow shams in the booth including my 2 hesperides shams. Clearly, I’m in to making shams.)

There’s something about making pillow shams that I find to be especially satisfying. They’re a great way to make use of just 1 or a few quilt blocks (quilted or not quilted), they’re fairly fast/low commitment and they make excellent gifts. Plus, they just perk up a couch or chair.

This group started when I was prepping for some workshops in March. It’s always fun to pick out fabrics, and my selection process for class samples and demos is no different. Since Euclid had already been announced, I excitedly picked from my new stuff and decided that I’d be able to double up on function by using these as class demos and then booth props (and now my own home goods…).

While photographing these guys, I realized how much I liked pairing them with my couch. The lines of my Everglade quilt pattern design work in an interesting way with my Circle Lattice design (from Savor Each Stitch).

    It’s so fitting that your geometric/abstract fabric style extends to these interesting applique designs. Such a modern take on applique. They look fabulous with your couch!
