To Market to Market...I did not go...

Ever since I knew Quilt Market was going to be in SLC, about 2 years ago, it was my plan to attend. But through a long series of events it was not meant to be this year.  Sniff sniff. However, I will go one day! So needless to say, I have been anticipating reading my favorite bloggers' posts on Market. Of course I may have a box of Kleenex in my lap while I read said posts and devour the rest of the Homemade Reese's Peanut Butter Cups I made this weekend.

In other news. Here is one of the few projects I've accomplished as of late...

Drapes! My first 'keeper' (meaning: for more than a few months - home decor projects aren't my greatest sewing strength) of a true home decor project. I love love love how they turned out. The panels are fully lined with blackout lining. The drapes are great at keeping out the bright Arizona sun. Another first for me was that I used a blind-hem foot/stitch. Very easy. It was hard to get a good full length picture, but the drapes are floor length. The thing I really loved about this project...I made both panels in ONE afternoon. Nice.

So there you go! Like I said, one of the few completed projects around here. I am just horrible at remembering to take pictures of the other ones. I hope everyone is doing great!

Thanks for reading,


While I typed this post, I a couple of Market posts popped up in my Reader. Thank you to the wonderful bloggers who are posting so I can live vicariously through your Market experience. :)


  1. I've got this same project on my list for today. Any tips on using that blackout lining? Did you use any tutorials?

  2. I am sorry you did not get to go to Market. I LOVE your drapes. I am in the midst of home decor projects myself. Lots of curtains in the works. I hope mine turn out as good as yours!


I love comments and questions!

If you have a question, email me so I have your contact information. My email link is on my left side bar.
