    Default Curtain quilt

    I bought a lovely curtain panel a few years ago in blue poly with brown delicate flowers embroidered on it. The other day i bought two light gray poly panels. Now what to do? I was thinking the flowers I cut out should be backed with some light weight fusible interfacing perhaps. I can get twenty 9 1/2 inch blocks of the flowers.

    Wish I had some good ideas for you because that fabric is gorgeous. I'm anxious to see what others suggest.

    I'm not familiar enough with working with poly that's in curtains. I'd be afraid it would be slippery and difficult to work with.

    beautiful curtains/fabric. the first thing I thought of is how much heat is needed to adhere a fusible interfacing. Would the fabric melt? What does the care label say? Can you use the panels in larger pieces than 9.5 blocks? Maybe use as a larger panel and add borders, then sandwich and quilt? I still am concerned about the heat needed for the pressing/ironing needed for seams. I bought a light blocking curtain panel to make into a cafe style curtain for a smaller window, and getting it pressed so it looked less "homemade" was a real challenge. Lower heat doesn't always work. Took a good bit of time to clean that curtain off my iron!
