    I found this panel at the thrift store that someone had made into a curtain. I took it apart, added the gold border with the stars (from my stash), quilted it (not very well mind you) bound it and sewed the binding down with metallic gold thread. I gave it to my granddaughter so she would have it for the premeire of the final Harry Potter movie. She loved it, flaws and all.

    What a great save!! I don't see flaws and I doubt that she does either.

    I just looked on ebay for a panel, and they are crazy prices. I think I paid 99 cents for it.

    I guess we were both looking at the same time.
