So you remember my desire to begin quilting. Well, I have been trying to dress up the master bedroom and bathroom. You know how it is - you decorate the whole house and then you just never get around to getting your room the way you want it. Well, we're renting our house here - I love the house - but I don't love the blue tile. I have been decorating the bathroom with dark brown and I was thrilled to find this fabric with the dark brown and light blue. I think it ties the two colors together quite nicely. :)
I did have one issue with my sewing machine - it was my first time using it - the thread isn't completely tight on both side of the sewing. I think that I need to match up some knobs on the machine - but I don't really know what they all mean...
I looked online for an easy valance pattern, but I didn't find exactly what I was imagining in my mind. So, I just made these without a pattern. There are two panels - is that the right word? I am OCD when it comes to symmetry, so I spent most of the time measuring up everything to make sure that one wouldn't be longer than the other. I am quite pleased with the results!
