    I have a shower curtain tha tlooks like a quilt top - every night I stare at it trying to figure out how I can make a quilt that matches....

    I was online looking for a new shower curtain for the kids bathroom and saw this and just fell in love with the pattern and colors...I think I'm going to buy it - if it doesn't work - Material isn't right or something I can always hang it in the kids bath!

    works out to be about 4.00 a yard- pretty good I'd say.

    Not crazy at all!! I know I look at the clearance sheets alot for the backing for quilts. I purchased some solid kingsize sheets for 3.24 each!! I also purchased the pillow cases - not as great a deal yardage wise but they were .75 for two!! I am in the process of making fishing pillow cases for my great postal guys and will use one for the backing for them!! I have also used the childrens curtain panels for backing or even squares for a quilt - You can find the Barbie, Cars etc patterns easily and cheaper than the fabric this way!! Just have to watch fabric content.

    Wow!! I love to shop clearance isles and you have given me more reasons to look!! Thanks cheryl :thumbup:
