Custom Quilted Window Valances in Primitive Colors

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

Just finished are two custom quilted window valances in the primitive colors of black, tan, mustard, and pumpkin.  They were made completely from my stash!  Yeah!

I have a love/hate relationship with hourglass blocks!  I love the way they look when set together in fours to make pinwheel blocks, but they are a bit labor intensive.

A peek at the back rod pocket.  This time I remembered to put the pocket on before adding the binding!  This way only one seam needs to be hand tacked down, rather than two seams.  They are not stitched down, yet!  I think I will watch a Celtic Thunder music DVD tonight and stitch away!

I use unbleached muslin on the back so they look neutral from the street if they happen to show through the window, plus, the muslin won't fade in the sunlight.
