curtains to match

I had to make curtains to match my new quilt and this is what I came up with.
I just used scraps of what I had left over from my quilt and sewed a strip together. Then I had 1/2 yard left of one fabric and cut 1" strips for a binding affect. I used this look last time I made curtains. But I figure I liked them so why not just change a few things around. If it's not broke don't fix it right?:)

Here is a closer look because it's fairly gloomy out so it makes for bad picture taking. Have a great weekend! And thanks for stopping by.

  1. Love your curtains. That's one of my favorite fabrics. I made three quilts out of it.

  2. I love your curtains! This is a perfect post bc I still need to hang curtains in my kitchen window and laundry room. How did you do the top of the curtains? I don't remember how I stumbled upon your blog, but I've enjoyed reading it!

  16. By the way... it may say that Barry O'Connor left the above comment as well as this one, but I assure you my husband is not reading quilting blogs. I'm just having trouble signing out of his google account. Sorry!
