We live in an area that gets quite cold during the winter. I would like to try making my own window quilts for some of our windows this year. I've heard that this can be an expensive thing to do, depending on what materials one uses. Unfortunately, the two rooms I'd like to make them for have large windows, three in our bedroom, two in my sewing room.
Has anyone made any of these or know of any cost saving ways to do so? I was wondering why a person couldn't use an inexpensive store bought type quilt, then cut it to measure, or??? Or, is it any cheaper to start fresh with your own fabrics and batting, etc.? Thanks so much in advance.
