Default Quilt shop bathrooms

Don't you just love the bathrooms that are decorated with quilts, wall hangings, etc. in quilt shop bathrooms? I know that my post is weird but it got me to think that I should make a fun bathroom themed project for mine. Anyone else decorate their bathrooms with quilt projects??

I have a small quilt hanging in my main bathroom. It is very country and I have toppers made from homespun yoyos on the back of the toilet tank, on a shelf and a round one on the vanity. Almost all the other things hanging in there are things I made.

Are these decorated baths an extra bath. I would worry about the moisture from showers or baths, and you know hubby leaves the water running to shave. I have seen some beautifully decorated and some just cute at the shops, but all we just flush and wash our hands.

I would love to see pics of the bathrooms. Mine is done in outhouses. I was lucky enough to find outhouse fabric and made hand towels with appliques and an extra tp roll cover. I was thinking of doing a small wall hanging but haven't gotten there yet.

Mine aren't bathroom themed wallhangings, but I do have quilted hangings in both baths. My house is small so I use every bit of space I can for quilts. They have been there for many many years and no damage from moisture that I can see.

Why not, you have a captive audience when you have visitors!

I like this idea! I would have to think about how to do it without my husband ruining it....but, I think it would work.

If you take precautions to avoid mold and mildew (such as running the fan during and after a shower) you should be fine. I had a small wallhanging in my master bath for years until my MIL saw it. She fell in love with it so I gave it to her.
