Glad These Are Done

Bathroom curtains hung today. This was A LOT of sewing! I've had this idea in my head for a long time, ever since I saw it in Passionate Patchwork by Kaffe Fasset. A few weeks ago, I noticed the 22 year old white eyelet curtains were not pretty ANYMORE!!! I picked up some shot cottons and various fabrics, keeping with the colors in the bathroom: light blue and violet. Many stash fabrics were used also.
In the Dark! oooo

Some fabrics are from Kaffe Fasset, others very random. I'm please with how this came out. The squares were cut 3.5 inches, the shot cotton in the middle at 2 inches. After sewing the shot cotton to the center of the 3.5 inch square, I cut out from behind it. I LOVE the effect this shows with the light!
I am so so glad these are done and up, as I am leaving town tomorrow to go see that sweet baby in Arizona... yeah! While I hold her, maybe her mamma can get some sewing of her own done.
Sorry about this last shot, never thought I'd put a picture of dirty toes here, but this is the ONLY picture the Brettster would let me take of him for his Pioneer Trek adventure. I guess he was proud of this.
Take Care~~

Wow -- Those are fantastic! I'd spend all day in the bathroom just to admire the new curtains. Fantastic job!!!

It looks like Brett needs to utelize that shower with those lovely curtains more often. Pretty bumbed that he wouldn't let you get a full body shot of him. Hopefully his Ma and Pa took some.

I'm with Anna...I would spend all day in there. Can I put in an order? :)))

The toes are hilarious. My kids were so mad at me for taking before and after trek pictures but now they are glad. They look at them sometimes even. The curtains are lovely. Beautiful fabric.

Love, love the see through effect. Sometimes I put my quilt tops up against a window before I sandwich them, and I love the effect. Your curtains look great!
