Granny Shams! A Glutton for Punishment

Don't forget to go by and vote for your favorite blocks at the Accuquilt Barn Quilt Contest. I am numbers 18, 94 and 100, and I would greatly appreciate your vote!

So I got the crazy idea to offer to make pillow shams to match the twin quilts I just finished. Yeah, I know. Barb already told me we tend to make more work for ourselves! I came across this great tutorial for putting them together using a quilt block so I made two big Granny Squares using charm squares from my leftovers. The fronts are quilted and I loved how they turned out.

Here's how they look filled and on the bed.
I thought they turned out very cute and they'll go great with the bed quilts. I will definitely use this pattern again, but I think I will move the opening in the back for the pillows to the center so there is no pucker at the end of the pillow.
Linking up!

Good job. My oldest has decided that he now needs a pillow sham to go with his dorm quilt (made 3 years ago). At least he isn't in a rush for it. Glad I saved all the extra materials and scraps.
