What was your source for this quilting project? Improvisational

Shoestring on

What materials did you use? Cotton Prints--Leftover Blocks from Blue Green Quilt (posted quilt previously) to make a Body Pillow Sham.

What are you most proud of? Using Up Left Over Blocks. I made the Pillow Sham bigger than the body pillow. After the first washing/drying the cotton will shrink. Cotton shrinks about 1/2 inch per yard after washing/drying. After the first washing/drying, I'll probably re-sew the seams to make a better fit.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Find a uses for your leftover quilt blocks--like pillow cases or shams. Leftover quilt blocks would make a great tote bags too!

Where could I get this pattern?

10.5" color squares with 2.5" ivory border around each square. No pattern really.
