If you follow me on Flickr, you will have already seen this pic (below). I was experimenting with making a pieced backing for my chevron quilt. However, once I had the pieces sewn together I didn't like it for a backing. My next move was going to be to cut some big perpendicular "slashes" across the strips and turn it in to a modern quilt top. And that's where it sat for a week. Until I woke up this morning and decided to turn it in to a pieced panel for a window valance.
Can I just say that I have been obsessed with turquoise or mint lately. I inadvertently painted my living area walls a light turquoise-y color (I thought it would be much more gray than it ended up being). Regardless, the new valance also looks nice with the entry/kitchen walls.
