So I ordered a plain white pleated bedskirt and 2 tailored shams. (King size!) I also got a Terrain jelly roll and I went to work and created these:
This is the bedskirt.
And this is one of the pillowshams.
Behind the skirt.So what I did was take the jelly roll and pull out one strip of each fabric. I had a yard of the purple fabric for the "backing" so I did not use the purple strip from the jelly roll. I cut the strips in half and created strip sets. I randomly sewed strips together until they were no more than 24 inches wide. I stopped there because I wanted them to fit under my ruler without having to fold. Once all the strips were sewn into strip sets, I cut across them making 2.5" strips. So now I had strips of squares. After I subcut all of the different strip sets, I sewed them all together to give me yards and yards of squares. I sewed the strip to the bottom edge of the bedskirt, right sides together. (Right on top of the hem.) I pressed the strip set over, to extend the length of the bedskirt. Next, I cut purple strips wider than the 2.5 inch strip sets. I think I cut them 2.75 or 3 inches wide. I sewed them end to end to get yards. I pressed a 1/4 inch hem along one long, long edge of the purple strip, and then sewed the other long raw edge along the raw edge of the stip set, and then I pressed it around to the back. Cutting it wider left it possible to have a bit of the purple strip showing on the front.
I carefully pinned it into place and then stiched from the front. In the picture above, you can see the bit of purple from the front--creating a "binding-like" look. I did the same thing around the pillow sham. In that case, I just enclosed the flange of the tailored sham.
In retrospect, I wish I had taken photos of the process, but I'm delighted to have been able to customize ready-made objects instead of making them all myself.
I still have many jelly roll strips, misc. blocks from the quilt, and other scraps. Usually, throwpillows and or a wall quilt made of "leftovers" becomes the first anniversary gift. Or the third. Or the fifth!
