Making Progress

Here's a quick look at my progress. I finished the pillow shams that go with the Zig Zag quilt. I hope to get some bigger throw pillows done in the next week too. Whirlygiggles is done! The back is a bright lime green flannel with little blue polka dots. Love the quilting and the softness of this one. Have a few more stitches to rip and back to quilting Radio Flyer!

I love the way you quilted that last one--I liked it before but that quilting really does something for it!

ROZ said...

I never made pillow shams, but yours sure are inspiring! Lovely.

Rebekah said...

wow! These look really great with the quilting done. I've never even thought about making quilted shams to match...such a great idea!

You have been so motivated - yesterday and today I haven't been at all. Love the whirlygiggles quilting - it really makes the quilt. And the shams are great - so much better than anything you would find anywhere.

Those shams are AWESOME!

Ditto on the quilting of the whirlygigs! I find that's where I often get stuck. I'm never sure if what I pick for the quilting design is the best way to complement the piecing.

And that radio fabric in your last post is fantastic!! I love the block you made with it. I say add it to the to do list...

Pillow shams! What a neat idea! You should submit that idea to one of the quilting magazines.

Leanne said...

You are very quick the sound of a flannel back is very snuggly it is cold and wet here tonight you quilt would do just the trick.

Your quilted pillowshams are awesome. I have made matching pillowcases before but I must say the quilted sham will really set off the quilt.

Jacquie,

Hi! I'm still catching up on blog reading from being away for a week.

LOVE the shams. I'm working on this quilt right now. All fabric is cut and tomorrow I will remember to sew 1/4 inch from my pencil lines!
