    You did an amazing job of getting everything to line up! Wow! It looks like you now have a warm, comfy place to work.

    Thanks, they do help keep the house warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The fron of the room faces East so in the summer I keep the quilts pulled to keep the sun out, have the other ones open in the sun get to the west side. In the winter I leave the open until late afternoon and close the for the night.

    The fabrics I used were my scraps from several project I had made over the years. They are all colors I love.

    I like the look of your quilting stitches. I'm getting ready to make a shower curtain and think I will borrow this idea.

    I love these! I have a shelf/quilt rack over a sliding door to my deck from the living room and those would be great there.

    They are beautiful. I have been thinking of making a pair but not sure about what batting/wadding to include? What did you use?

    I am also thinking of doing this...I think flannel would be wonderful batting....I bought a bunch from Joannes when the flannel was 2.99 a yard. I like using it for batting for placemats, ottoman mats, and thinking that it would be perfect for curtains. Your curtains look wonderful....so warm and inviting.

    I used Warm and Natural. Since I was trying for some insulation from the heat and cold I thought that would be best. I also made these as quilt as you go and thought that I could butt the batting better when joing two sections together.
