    I just moved into a place with a large bathroom and am wondering if any of you put quilted items in the bathroom. I would love to see some pictures.

    Thank you,
    Pat

    I haven't yet but I have thought about it. Oh wait, I did do 1 thing. I took and old basket and covered it in sunflower fabric, it is where I keep toilet paper. My bathroom is done in sunflowers.

    I hang a quilt up every once in a while, but there isn't one in there now. I just find that they need to be washed more that others because of the moisture.

    I have a stand that holds the old wash bowl & pitcher that has a bar across it for a towel, but I have a small quilt folded on it.

    I had a big bathroom im TX that was tiled. It needed more to cut the echo and started a quilt but never got it up as we had to move. Just finished it and plan to hang in new bathroom as soon as I figure out how I want to hang it.

    I have quilts folded on on a cabinet in the bathroom, One hanging on the main wall and one in front of the seat with cute toilet paper rolls on it. Called, On a Roll. There's actually not one wall or shelf in my house without quilty things on it. I love my quilts. Even all the beds and pillow shams. My friends say it looks like a quilt retreat in here LOL. Merry Christmas to all.

    I am planning on making a quilted frog wall hanging for my sons' bathroom - as well as a quilted shower curtain valance...

    In my bathroom, I already have one long skinny quilt hanging up. I am going to be paper piecing a dragonfly quilt from the Paper Pieced Nature Quilts book.

    I'm thinking about making quilted or sewn toilet toppers and maybe a nice cover for a spare roll....

    Hey. If I can think it and I find the time, I'll make it :D

    Debbie,
    My kids say "No one will get cold at Mom's cause there is a quilt on every chair, couch and hanging on every door."

    For starters, reason #1 to make a shower curtain--my tub is 6' long. I used a metal closet rod that's screwed into the studs on the end walls. (DH wanted it to stay up-told me to come up with a sturdy way to hang a quilted shower curtain!) I used a lightweight flannel as filler so it's not as heavy as a standard quilt. I think it measures 80 x 80". I sewed ties to the top end and tied them to the rod. Yes has a plastic liner, too. One could also put grommets in the top or sew large button holes and regular curtain rings.

    Several years ago, I found the perfect quilt for the bathroom. I bought it and it hangs over the back of the toilet. It's 3 different toilet paper rolls! One is full, paper coming off b ack, another is full paper off front & the middle one is an empty T-paper tube still hanging with 1 sheet left on it! The room is reall small, but I'll try to get a pic of it.

    I have a very old (maybe 28 years) appliqued wall hanging of a cat next to a watermelon. Plus I have a valance that includes another appliqued cat block--made that maybe three or four years ago. I have seen some really cute quilted bathroom rugs and if I had the right type of shower enclosure, I'd love a quilt there.

    Here is a pic of the quilt. It was also my first attempt at machine applique. If I could find the pattern, I'd probably do it over to soften the hard corners.

    Color is a little washed out

    LOL Mine would always be the middle roll of TP. And don't be so hard on yourself. No one saw your "mistakes"!

    My daughter made a Black, white and red wall hanging for her bathroom. It has ladybugs on it and that is her bathroom's theme. (She even had RED walls!!!!) So you can put them in a bathroom.
