    I have often thought of doing this. I had a friend who did one for her bathroom. She did a scrappy patchwork with pretty big squares, possibly 12". It was pretty.

    Like the curtains, but did you see the prices? A little too rich for my pocketbook. I do have a white shower curtain that I think I will do something with. Can't wait!

    You would use a vinyl or plastic liner with it

    Great place to look for ideas. Did you see all the quilted handbags? I saw many I liked.

    From the first site, I like the second one and think I'll make one similar to that after I paint my bathroom gray. Thanks Crafty Bear!

    I have a quilted shower curtain now. It's a single irish chain with the solid block being done with bluework (machine embroidery). We love it!

    Love the shower curtain quilt. If I were to make it myself - how do you put in the metal gromets (sp?) at the top of the shower curtain?

    Those are actually pretty easy ones to piece, IMO... so it's a good inspiration for us, especially if we want a special shower curtain and can't see spending that kind of money! Isn't it great being able to make something for less?!

    Great suggestions. I promise one to my daughter, so guess I better get busy for Christmas. Gave me a couple ideas, you did!

    I did not put in grommets. However, I did put a sleeve (same fabric as the border) attached in the binding but did not attach the bottom part of the sleeve. This part turns up above the border and I put buttonholes in this. If I should decide at a later time to use as a regular quilt I will just turn the sleeve down and attach like a normal hanging sleeve. And yes, I do have a vinyl liner behind it. I did this for my MIL about 15 years ago also. She kept it hanging at least 10 years without any problems!
