Pinwheel Pillows Shams To Match Any Linen

Use A Mix Of Colors For Your Pinwheel Shams

Pretty pinwheel blocks used in pillow shams provide a great choice to use mixed colors. A variety of color will match easily with existing linen. If your bedroom is looking a little too plain, or you just feel like a change, a new set of pillow shams give a bedset a whole new look. Two pillow shams are quick and easy to make, and provide an instant update to your bedroom decor. Choose fabric that will tie in with your existing linen for a quick makeover.

Puffy pillows on the bed become the feature when they’re dressed up and pretty. Layers of pillows are fresh and inviting. Use two pillows with a solid color as a starting point. Dig into your scraps and see what there is to make pinwheels that will match the solid color. Usually a textured print for the front pillow looks great against a pillow with a solid color.

Choose a print for the pinwheels and let the solid color accent your favorite color in the print. Colorful florals provide a lot of freedom to add a whole range of solid colors for the back pillows. Sew up some new pinwheel shams and you will more than likely start using solid color pillow covers that have been tucked away in the cupboard for ages, because they just never matched with anything.

A bedset with neutral colors can also be complimented with a mix of soft neutrals and prints for the pinwheels. Vintage whites with tans, beige and soft country themed neutrals are stunning. Soft colors for all layers of pillows create a dreamy romantic feel. Use a print with small magenta roses or flowers and beige tones for the pinwheels, and use vintage white for the sashing. That combination almost never fails and will match almost any linen ranging from white, beige, cream, soft green, rose and apricot colors, even striped linen in those colors.

The pattern for the pinwheel pillow cover is available as part of a beautiful bedset ensemble which includes a pinwheel quilt, bed skirt and valence. Make the whole set, or add the valence, a small additonal project to compliment your new pillow shams.
