Windows for Teriney and last year's quilt!!!

First of all, here is my square for Teriney.  I don't really have any stories for these fabrics except that the lower right martian robot fabric was on my nephew's quilt.  Oh, and that snowcone was on a bandana I've had in my stash for years.

Hopefully Teriney likes it!

Secondly, I never finished my 12squared offset stacked coin quilt from last year because I was busy and really didn't need another lap quilt.  The other day I bought bright new towels for the kids and was wishing I had a more colorful shower curtain.  BAM!!!  The idea came to me to use the quilt top for a shower curtain and so I present to you...

The I-thought-I-was-going-to-be-a-quilt shower curtain. 

Now I get to see it everyday (as do guests that answer Mother Nature's call).  It's so cheerful and lovely and makes me smile every time I see it.  (our main bathroom is tiny, so it was hard to get a photo of the whole thing.  If you're not sure where your square is, go here)

Maybe I'll put this year's quilt together before a year goes by!  Or maybe I'll make myself 24 pot holders.  lol.


  1. Emily, I LOVE the quilt top as a shower curtain. It looks fantastic-- right out of an Anthro catalog. Your square for Teriney looks great, too. You always amaze me.

  2. Emily, Thank you for the square! I do love it! And the shower curtain looks very cool!!!

  3. Once again I am in love with your work. Teriney's square rocks. Such a natural at putting shapes and colors together. Shower curtain- brilliant. I just might have to use that block for my month; great way to get lots of fabrics and colors! I am having the hardest time finding/deciding.

  4. What a great idea! And like you said, every time anyone enters the bathroom, they will enjoy the "quilt". Your square is perfect!
