Let's start with a very personal question.
How do you make your bed in the morning?
(1) Quilt folded back and over the pillow.
(2) Pillows fluffed and on top of the quilt
(3) Pillow Shams over pillows
(4) I never make my bed
Mom taught me the first method and I used that method through my mid 30s. Once I started quilting, I realized that folding the quilt back doesn't showcase the quilt well. And it is much faster to make your bed when using pillow shams.
Since I have a new quilt -- I now need new pillow shams. I will share with you how you can design your own pillow shams using EQ8.
