    from shower curtain to quilt

    I found a brand new 100 % cotton shower curtain still in the package for 99 cents at the thrift store. It is the fabric with the leaf design. I had the other fabric in my stash. This is one of the prayer quilts I am making. It is 45 by 65 inches. I had enough of the shower curtain for the backing as well and I am pleased with the results. I still am quilting it in the ditch and have the binding to put on, but I think that shower curtain looks great in a quilt, don't you? I am putting an overlay of lace on the cross, just for somthing different - or maybe not...have not decided yet.

    Lucky find. It is such a pretty quilt. We never know what we are going to run across that we can use in our quilting.

    Very pretty and I like the lace. They make such beautiful shower curtains now that you could use for quilting.

    Beautiful, beautiful quilt! What type of pen did you use to write the verses? They look great.

    I used a Pentel Gel Roller for Fabric Pen. Each of the Scripture quilts has 34 scriptures and I get about 56 out of one pen. I buy them at Hobby Lobby for $2.99 and some times they have 2 in a package for about $4.99.

    It is very impressive. Love the writing, the shower curtain, and especially the lace over the cross!
