Done, Done, Done - oh happy day!!

Remember The Quilt-zzzz??  Well, this afternoon I finished the matching pillow shams so I can call that particular project done.  Happy dance?  You bet!!

Above is the setting I used for the main quilt,
and below is the setting for the second one. 

Sorry the picture quality isn't the best but it is definitely difficult to get a decent picture of something that's predominantly white.

(and, before you ask, yes there are two of each!!).

Today the quote is courtesy of Norman Vincent Peale.... "The way to happiness:  keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry.  Live simply, expect little, give much.  Fill your life with love.  Scatter sunshine.  Forget self, think of others.  Do as you would be done by.  Try this for a week and you will be surprised"


  1. The pillow shams must have been a bit boring to make, but they look classy!Very professional finish!
    What a generous person Kathy is to offer the classes.

  2. Congratulations! Such a big project - TWO big projects, really - finished!
    And beautiful :)

  3. Hello Mary Anne! Your pillow shams are beautiful and are really going to make a lovely addition to the quilts you have made! Have a lovely weekend! :) x

  4. Congratulations, it's a good feeling to finish up a project.
    Good Quote, good words.

  5. Congratulations Mary Anne on completing the shams as well as both huge quilts.
    A worthy mammoth effort which will surely be appreciated by all.

  6. Hmmm..white pillow shams,they look good.In my case, I would be tempted to add embroidery. White on white,perhaps?

  7. Another beautiful project to check off your list! Glad you mentioned Kathy's class. I might have to sign up to see what I am missing. I have seen some impressive work by her students. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment.

  8. You deserve an award! Congratulations!
