I finished the pillow sham and I'm pretty pleased with it. My seam ripper had a heck of a workout though. If I could mess it up, I did. I sewed a stray strip to it, I put the back on the front, I made the back the wrong side and had to make it again, LOL, but it's done!
And the usual help from my assistant, who seemed to think it shouldn't be laying so flat.
