My proposed curtains!

The curtains in my bedroom are very long and I have been humming and arrhing what do with them.I can't find any that I like so I am planning to make my own! Of course me being me I don't want a plain pair. So this is my idea!
They will be similar in idea to these yellow curtains below......
The top two thirds will be a plain white , then I will have a gingham ribbon separating the next band of fabric ...................
Which I hope will be a duck egg blue floral (rose) fabric............................................

Which will then be separated by a floral ribbon..... from the last band of fabric which will be a small polka dot fabric in red...to match my quilt!

I have just finished a red rose polka dot quilt...(see post below) And I am making a similar one but in duck egg blue for the summer. I am making a mixture of red and duck egg blue cushions to scatter across the top of the bed.

I am a bit apprehensive about tackling them but I am sure that if I put my mind to it and just methodically work through it I can do it!!!!

What do you think??? Will it look nice or a bit weird?????


  1. I think it will look fabulous! Love the quilt in your last post too! Gorgeous!
