Ok, it’s taken me a little while to get to posting about it, but I made these pillow shams last month for my mom for mother’s day. I wanted something that would fit well with her stacks of books quilt, so I picked out many of the same solid fabrics I used in the quilt to make up the shams. (Also, about 2.5 seconds after she opened the quilt at Christmas, she said, “ooh! Now I need matching shams!” so I had been planning to make these for a while.)
A few weeks after I gave them to my mom, I was visiting my parents and was able to take some pictures of them in their new home. My mom and sister helped me make up the bed, and they couldn’t help but add some real books to complement the quilt and shams!
