A bundle of vintage sheets and pillow cases have been waiting for me to make patchwork
curtains out of them for  a while now. Finally I have done it, they look so pretty, colorful and
sweet hanging in our bright and very white bedroom, and once I get tired of them I plan to
sew them together to make a quilt!!

Very clever! Those are seriously cute curtains. Would be a great idea for brightening up a child's bedroom too, if you found the right kind of sheets.

Anyway, top marks to you in creativity school today!

They are so pretty. I've been collecting vintage sheets to make a quilt from. You've inspired me to start it asap. I really love the look of all the different patterns together.
I hope you're resting & happy in your last few days.

These are absolutely beautiful.
I love the stained glass effect of light through a quilt top and this way you get to see it all the time.

I love this idea - they look fabulous. I have an all white bedroom too - except for a scrappy quilt on our bed!

Hi! My name is erica. Would you be my friend? said...

They're so pretty! I wondered how patchwork curtains would look (I have a huge window...too wide for regular fabric to properly cover). Did you back them with anything?

Heather said...

Why can't I buy these? Grrr!

I love your curtains. I have been wanting to do something with my stack of vintage sheets and pillowcases. How did you finish your seams?
