Materials for Pillow Sham
5--1/8-yard pieces of assorted bright prints for blocks
2-5/8 yards of muslin for blocks, border, and sham back
37x27" quilt batting

From each assorted bright print, cut:
From muslin, cut:
1--37x27" backing rectangle
2--3x30-1/2" inner border strips
2--3x15-1/2" inner border strips
1. Referring to instructions for Pinwheels Quilt, Assemble the Blocks, steps 1 and 2, layer each bright print 3-3/8x42" strip with a muslin 3-3/8x42" strip. From each layered pair, make 22 triangle-squares. (You will have 6 triangle-squares left over.)
2. Referring to instructions for Pinwheels Quilt, Assemble the Blocks, Step 3, make a total of 15 Pinwheel blocks. Set aside the remaining triangle-squares for the pieced outer border.
3. Lay out the Pinwheel blocks in three horizontal rows (see Diagram 4). Sew together the blocks in each row. Press the seam allowances in one direction, alternating the direction with each row. Then join the rows to make the pieced sham center. The pieced sham center should measure 25-1/2x15-1/2", including the seam allowances.
4. Sew the muslin 3x15-1/2" inner border strips to the short edges of the pieced sham center. Then join the muslin 3x30-1/2" inner border strips to the long edges of the pieced sham center.
