Well, not "shamming" in the military slang sense of the word - as per the Urban Dictionary:  Shamming (Military): "To intentionally avoid work, being at work, exercise, etc...".  Yes, the term may well have been tossed around  Army of Four Headquarters with that exact meaning during the first couple months of the month-long remodel.  A lot.  But no.  I mean "shamming" as in pillow shams!


That's right! The remodelers left by about 2:30 or so yesterday, so I raced down to the Studio to see if I could get those pillow shams done. Not only did I get them made, but I clipped all the denim edges and gave them a good wash and tumble dry!!!

I went with the same wavy quilting as on the bed quilt - and even used a spare panel from that quilt for the open edge part.  I turned that open end twice and sewed a little 3/8" or so "binding" there for the finish.  I'm very pleased with how they came out.

Maggie whole-heartedly approves!

A huge project, all wrapped up! It feels great!

Thanks for reading!

  3. Love your pillow shams! They are so pretty!

  4. Now the bed ensemble is complete. It all looks great and should hold up to some "carrier" landings by the girls.

  5. Thanks for sharing the beautiful work that you do. The way the pillows match the quilt is really lovely. If Maggie approves then you have a job well-done there. Great seeing such amazing work. Have a wonderful day.
