    Finally finished!

    So, I made this quilt a couple of years ago.... in fact, I made two! I made one for me and one for my older sister. It quickly became my favorite and the one I use on my bed all the time (except Christmas). So I wanted to make shams to go with it. Finally made them this past weekend. I'm really happy with the look, I got new lamps about a month ago and hubs bought me some handmade Amish night stands and a dresser to go with our Bed.

    The quilt is Jenny's Four Seasons block, with a Layer Cake. Shams are with a Charm pack. Thanks Jenny!

    Really love that. I was thinking it was a summer in the park or summer in the park revamped. I'll have to look up the four seasons block!
    I had made a pillow sham for my sisters quilt and she really loved it too. They were fun and easy to make.

      Thanks! Jenny did the block with Charm packs... for me... I am about big blocks fast! LOL. So I just amp'ed it up to the Layer Cake. My HST's were 6.5 inches and the block came out at 24 inches. Much like Jenny's "Big Star" ... only "Big Four Seasons"... It worked for me.

      For the shams I used the Charm pack, and did the sewing diagonally and back, to get 2 HST each time. They were 4.5 inches.

      The thing about the Four Seasons is that it really goes smoothly and works well with Jenny's method of HST's. I have no problems with the bias making this. Give it a try.

                Oh, this has such a peaceful and tranquil look to it! Nice job on the quilt and the shams. Your bedroom is very pretty and quiet looking.

                  That's a beautiful set and it looks great in your room. Love the color, too, and the lamps.

                        Oh thank you so much for the compliment. We are a military family and we moved a lot. I read a book decades ago called, "The Spirit of Loveliness". She wrote about how the bedroom should be a haven that you enjoy to come to every night to rest. She also wrote that when you move, you should finish unpacking and getting the bedroom all set up with bedding, candles, things you love, first. So that each day you return there to snuggle down. I've tried to do that.

                          Your bedroom truly does reflect a tranquil feeling...may I come and take just a NAP? I'll be gone by the end of 2027...ha ha ha...

                              So pretty, and colors are so soothing.
