Some Hometown Happiness!

I don't know how it is at your house,
but over here my hubby and I need to agree on
the decor inside the house.
(Maybe that's why after 11 years the house is still not finished)
The problem is that I love red
and he loves blue.
It's not very often I run across things that incorporate both.
So when I found these bath towels at Marshal's
a while back, I knew I had to have them.
It was a way to bring some red into our only bathroom.
And then when I saw this line of fabrics
by Sweetwater called "Hometown"
I could have sworn I heard angels sing!!!
It's the perfect fabric for this tiny room!
I used red for the valance
and I pieced 6 different fabrics for the side panels.

I used french seams so that it would look neat
from the front and backside.
I pressed the enclosed seams to one side
and stitched them down.

I'm pretty happy with the results :)
I have one more small project to work on
for this bathroom.
Hopefully I'll have it done tomorrow
and I can post pictures.


  1. Happiness indeed! Hometown is a winner through and through! I think I'll save my last jelly roll and charm pack forever!

  2. Beautiful! The seams are perfect.

  3. Very sweet! I love the French seams too. Have a happy weekend!

  4. Oh my goodness - those are adorable!! You did a great job.

  5. Really cute! I have to do some work on our bathroom. We've been here 5 1/2 years now, and there is nothing on our walls at all. Maybe when my store is back in the black again...

  6. those colors are fantastic together, it's going to be beautiful,oh I got my jelly roll & pattern today thanks! & I think the jelly roll may be too pretty to cut LOL!

  7. Nice job Karen as usual!!! ;) Wish I knew how to do french seams. Maybe you should do a tutorial on them... hint, hint! ;) Have an awesome weekend! :)

  8. Es un trabajo que te ha quedado precioso; la tela es ideal. ¡A disfrutarlo!

  9. Great job. I love the way you matched the curtains with the towels. Hometown is a beautiful line of fabric and it was a perfect choice.

  10. oh wow. these are beautiful! thanks for showing the back side; now i understand the value of french seams!

  11. Beautiful. I LOVE Hometown and have a layer cake and charm pack that I want to do something special with.
