Today is my Birthday. No cake for me. I'm happy with feeling well enough to have a bite of spaghetti for supper. I was determined to do something today to prove I am getting better. So I decided to do a bit of sewing.
Our windows have blinds but no curtains. I've had an idea floating in my head to make a kinda quilt as a curtain. It would be the same basic pattern that I will use to make quilts for our beds. I thought I would start with the smallest window in our bedroom.
Much to the amazement of nearly everyone, I've managed to take old material with me everywhere we have moved. I have my Mom's old dresser stuffed full of old material from the days of crafting before I became a teacher (yep over 25 years of moving these pieces of material). I went up to the dresser and starting picking and choosing material until I had some colors I liked. Then I had to come up with a design. I tried one then another. Finally decided what would look nice. That took most of the morning.
Before one can stitch, one has to cut the pieces from the various pieces of material. We got this wonderful machine called an Accu-quilt for cutting the pieces.
Time to sew! Remember 1/4 inch seam allowance and make sure to match the corners. Then press the seams open.
