    I bought this
    bathmat for my master and Im trying to find a fun fabric to make a valance with. Not sure if I do plain, circles or squares? I am trying to pull out that baby blue color as my bath is tan in color.
    Should I do a pattern or something solid??

    thank you so much

    I think I would look for the blue fabric with your browns in it or visaversa. Very popular color combination for fabric right now. Would look stunning. You can use any type of pattern in the fabric as long as it goes with the colors you choose.

    Another thought, if you wanted to do a strip of the baby blue. I made valances that are navy above the pocket rod, then reg. material, then navy over the rod portion, big drop down of reg. fabric and then end it with a 3" navy at the bottom.

    Great colors. They are really "in" right now. Anxious to see what you found at the LQS.

    Check out the Moda collection by Sweetwater called Pure. It's all the same colors as the bathmat.

    I think I'd look for a jelly roll to match the mat, and just do a piano key-type striped valance. I checked the Moda Pure suggested above and it does look great.

    BTW that's a great bathmat. My wife and I picked the same one last year when we added the bathroom downstairs.

    Since we have that mat also, I'm especially interested in your finished product. We bought some striped fabric with the intention of making a valance, but so far the window is bare. I think if the project had been more "quilty" we might have been more motivated to jump into it.

    What color are your walls? We matched the blue in the mat with our paint, and the vanity and med cabinet are a dark espresso brown. The shower, sink, and toilet are white. We love the room, but we need to put some finishing touches to it.
