Miss Kate Sliding Glass Door Curtains {Sewing For Me!} + A Link-Up!

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

The first project in my Sewing For Me campaign is new dining room sliding glass door curtains.  The previous curtains were in a log cabin pattern in deep reds and black and were very dark.  They were very eye-catching but weren't my style anymore since I've moved away from primitive fabrics and decor.   My husband suggested something brighter with yellow.  I'm pretty sure they aren't what he had in mind, but I ♥ them!  They are so bright and cheerful!

The curtains are made from 6.5" unfinished squares {6.5" Accuquilt strip cutter} and white backing with no batting or quilting.  I pressed the seams open for a cleaner look when light shines through it.  The fabrics are Miss Kate by Bonnie and Camille for Moda with a few dots thrown in because I ♥ dots!

Would you believe this is a repurposed Craftsy kit?  Yep, some of the fabric is from the Miss Kate Turn Over Quilt Kit!  I often buy Craftsy quilt kits even if I don't like the pattern and use the fabric for other projects since the price per yard is so good!

My favorite way to hang curtains is with clip curtain rings.  The rings slide on the rod, making it easy to open and close the curtains.  The rings come in various sizes and colors to fit any decor.  

Your turn to link up anything you're sewing for yourself during the month of December!

Hi Myra! These are the most beautiful curtains! Now I want patchwork curtains - I really love the scene with the light coming through the quilt! How about washing, if you didn't stitch them to the backing fabric? x Teje
