    Scrappy 'Jewel Box' Pillow sham!

    I have made two of these pillowshams out of left over 4 patches and HST's from my Jacob's Ladder Scrappy quilt I made last autumn. (The other just needs the binding hand stitching down)

    I decided to do a different block layout, so the overall design was smaller to 'fit' the size of a bed pillow

    You will see that it has already been christened by Millie Dog...turn my back on her for a minute and she is up!

    What a clever idea to use the rest of your Jacobs Ladder blocks for this quilt. I have stacks of those little blocks left from mine.

    Great quilt and pillow shams. I think she thinks it's a little quilt for her? Maybe she needs one of the pet beds that were posted this week? It's under Super easy~wonderful cat or dog bed and the link gives a good tutorial.

    Millie and your pillowshams are aborable. Love the quilt by the way - I've seen your journey with this quilt, and it's been so lovely to watch your progress.

    I absolutely love it and you should be very proud. Well done

    Hugs to Millie for all the help she gave too

    Izy your posts are always a delight. Loved your Jacobs ladder and the pillow shams are equally beautiful.

    Those colors are so pleasant along with the pattern. I would love to make pilowcovers like these. Added to my favorites.
