decorative pillow cases Jo’s Scrappy Plaid Quilt decorative pillow shams

I’;ve always wanted a scrappy plaid quilt, I have a bunch of old plaid shirts, and I’;ve been spending lots of time with my overlockers/sergers lately (of course I have more than one!), so…;. I deconstructed a basketful of plaid shirts – augmented by some plaid pajama pants from my local thrift store and a couple of solid chambray shirts for contrast – and made this cozydecorative pillow cases, dog-approved,?Reversible Scrappy Plaid Quilt.?

Instructions for my quilt are in the newest issue of BERNINA’;s free online magazine, Through the Needle ONLINE, Issue 18, pages 19-21. While I used an overlocker/serger to construct this quilt, it could also be made with a regular sewing machine; there’;s just be more trimming involved, so rotary cutting equipment would be very helpful. This would be a fabulous stash-buster quilt. I have a collection of winter/snow and holiday/Christmas prints that would make a pretty quilt?– blues and whites on one side, reds and greens on the other.
