Aren't the colors so vibrant? It makes me happy to look at them. And this morning, when I walked out and saw the sun shining in through them, it just made me smile. Funny what a little curtain can do to a mood.
I just love them. I used Anna Maria Horner voile fabrics from almost all of her collections, cut them into 6" squares and sewed them up into rows of 8 x 9 which seemed to work perfectly for my window. There are two 8 x 9 panels here so the curtains open in the middle. This is very important since I have a dog that will rip the curtains down if they aren't left open when we leave. (He likes to see outside).
I chose not to line or hem these since once we get the new house built I'll have different sized windows. This way, I can simply take these down when we move and make them into 2 little baby quilts or join them, add some more blocks and make a bed quilt for myself. The latter option is very appealing! And with the soft, lightweight voile fabrics and a crisp cotton backing, I think this would make a wonderful summer quilt on my bed.
Enjoy your day! I'm off to the doctors for a check-up and another ultrasound. They want to see how big this little guy is getting.
