    Wink curtains in sewing room from stash

    I used this quilt top from scraps to make curtains for my sewingroom
    I didn't quilt it so I could get some light in the room. I Bought the
    oversized quilt rack at salvation Army for 15$ a few months ago
    and it worked perfect over the window.

    Cute. Love the soft colors. Wow, 15 cents... things must be cheaper in Texas.

    Like your curtains, too. I read that as $15 rather than cents! Maybe that make it more believable??? I like the idea of a quilt holder/curtain rod. I'm going to keep my eyes open for one to use in my living room. I keep a "window to no where" covered with a quilt all the time.

    Wonderful idea. Works perfectly at your window especially with the quilt rack. How clever you are.

    I love the whole thing. The fabric colors are so soft and calming, and the quilt rack/curtain rod is such a smart idea. Thanks for sharing.

    Very pretty. Will the sun fade it? I notice fabrics I keep near the window will fade.
