Boy, whadda mind! I totally forgot I still had to quilt my new holiday shower curtain before being able to hang it. (I seem to remember saying I wanted to get it up right after Thanksgiving, didn't I?)
Yesterday I put it up on my design wall to roughly fit the muslin backing for size.
Oooops. Guess who doesn't have enough muslin left on her bolt? Dang. And did I purchase another bolt to have on hand as a back-up? Nope.
Well, no problem. There's a plastic liner on the shower side of the curtain so it's not like the backing is ever going to even be seen. So who cares what the backing looks like? I scrounged up extra pieces of beige colored fabric and made this ugly backing.
(I know you come here for the really pretty pictures you can ooh and ahh over.)
Now I'll stitch the two big pieces together, right sides facing, like a pillowcase, leaving just enough of a space open to turn it. Then I'll press it well and pin it all together with quilting pins. (No batting in this one.) Then I can quilt it . . . which is gonna take some time. Oh, well. I don't have anything else to do this time of year. (Cough, choke, sputter, gasp . . . )
