Log Cabin Euro Shams


A log cabin pattern is a good way to use up scraps or just be able to add a lot of pattern into a project! The front of the pillows are quilted with a light weight batting and backing. The backs of the pillows I added a Home Dec fabric because I just wanted the weight and durability of it. And then for ease of use and cleaning I added an invisible zipper. 

I've had the tops of these pillows done for a while but thought that I might add some piping. WELL... piping isn't my favourite to do so I decided instead of having the project sit around unfinished and unused; that I would finish them up without piping.

SO glad I did!
They add some much needed colour to my room and every time I look at them they make me smile : ) Who wouldn't looking at all those beautiful fabrics!
