NEWFO # 2
Here we are at the end of February... how did that happen? So, it's time to post about my Newfo project for February. I recently made a quilt for my Aunty (my Mum's sister) - I used up lots of floral fabrics and blender fabrics that I must have had for years! I didn't get a great photo but here are a couple my sister took when we were delivering the quilt....
I named this quilt "Jewellery Box" as my Aunty loves jewellery and the quilt block reminded me of a big jewellery box. Aunty loved the quilt and it looked lovely on her bed.
So, what is my Newfo # 2 ??? ... Aunty wants a pillow sham to match the quilt! Yes, I'm destined to only make pillowslips for my Newfo projects :-)) A pillow sham can mean many things, but I believe that Aunty wants a wrap around cover for her pillow. I will make a large rectangle using all of the leftover fabrics from the quilt, layer it up with some cotton batting and a pretty backing and stitch it all together using the method where you just leave a gap along one edge and turn the whole thing inside out. You know what I mean!! It won't be like an envelope pillowslip, this piece will just go from under the pillow and over the top.
Here is my package all kitted up:-

I've come down with a summer cold so not too much sewing going on but I do have another video to post tomorrow!
