    Talking 4th of July shower curtain

    Hello everyone. I've always been a spectator....so today I decided to post something for a change. Before I cut out tons of fabric I always make a block or two to see if I'm going to want to do the block. Well, I managed to make 12 blocks...not quite enough for a bed quilt and I have a ton of lap quilts. So it became a shower curtain. I was originally planning it for last 4th of July. Ha...I have so many WIP and so little time. Hope you like it.
    P.S. My mom was here in December and saw it....so she went home and made me a queen size quilt to go with it. She doesn't have near the WIP that I do...I'm so jealous.
    The first pic is the shower curtain and the second is the bed quilt mom made.

    I never thought to use spare blocks for the outside part of a shower curtain - how clever and easy to wash Mom did a good job also

    Love your blocks

    How did you quilt the shower curtain. I'm thinking of doing one and tying it. I have about 8 blocks done so I don't need many more. I may make a bed quilt to match but I have a king.
    Don't know if I'm up to it. I'm been so lazy lately.

    I actually don't quilt it at all. It is basically just a pieced top with hemmed edges and an extra wide header with grommets. Although I have made a couple with liners, kind of like lining drapes.

    Great Idea to turn it into a shower curtain! It looks great! It's so sweet of your mother to make the bed quilt she did a great job too.

    I second that emotion! Who knew a shower curtain could be so festive? I love it! And your mom's "Trip Around The World" is really beautiful.

    Wow, what a great idea! Both very pretty!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    Very creative use of fabric for a shower curtain -- it really makes your bathroom now, doesn't it? I love that your mom made the quilt for you....bet you feel very warm and cozy under it, knowing it came from mom, huh? Terrific combination.
