I didn't realize I had never blogged my Madrona Road Challenge. The DSMMQG decided that we would do small quilts. I thought this fabric would coordinate well with my swoon quilt, so I decided to make my mini quilt into a pillow sham. I was also under a serious time constraint as we had just moved and were going on vacation during my working time, so it needed to be small and simple.
I saw this pattern in a couple of different places right after I got the fabric, so it seemed like fate. I did the math on how big a sham I wanted and then how many squares would fit evenly and took it from there.
