A Quilted Pillow Shams Tutorial {and GIVEAWAY} : :

Happy Monday, friends! I'm so excited to be sharing my very first Fat Quarter Gang project on the Art Gallery Fabrics Blog! Along with an amazing fabric Giveaway, of course! 

Art Gallery Fabrics Fat Quarter Gang

I'm SO thrilled to be a part of this team gang! 

HOMEPAGE_fatQuarterGANG

Today I'm showing you how to create a set of pretty patchwork quilted pillow shams, using LillyBelle by Bari J. for Art Gallery Fabrics! You can find the full project tutorial here or simply by clicking on the tutorial image below.
 

The Quilted Pillow Sham Tutorial 3

I chose prints from the LillyBelle Warm Sunset palette for this first project and right away I knew I wanted to make them into pillow shams! The feel of Art Gallery fabrics is so perfect for bedding, the soft plush from the quilting make these shams super comfy, and the patchwork of such gorgeous prints layer beautifully with other bedding pieces.
