My latest make is a Pretty Patchwork Pillow Sham – a beginner friendly patchwork project. I cut the fabric from fat quarters but you can use charm squares or jelly roll strips to create the patchwork panel. It is a fun way to use left over fabrics from your quilt. I first released the Pretty Patchwork Pillow Sham in 2015 and it continues to be popular today. It was time to give the pattern a makeover, so I remade it using the Posie Fabric Collection by Tanya Whelan Fabrics.
Posie fabric collection is bursting with sweet florals, ginghams, polka dots, paisleys, and stripes. For this project, I used the green and blue fabrics from the collection. I used 9 different prints for the pillow sham.
The front of the pillowsham is quilted which gives a lovely cosy finish to the pillow. It also features an internal flap to hide the inner pillow form from view. These pillows make a sweet gift. I have a pile of pillow shams I use on my guest bed to create a welcoming space.
The pattern has been updated with new photographs and is now formatted in my new pattern style. Don’t worry if you have the original pattern, the project is still the same. I am going to gradually go through some of my popular older patterns and revamp them. Our photography and graphic design skills have definitely improved over the years!
