{Post 1,077} Three Panels Together

My Christmas shower curtain is coming along.  I have 3 of the 7 verticle sections sewn together.  You can get an idea of how it looks here, pinned to my existing curtain.  I have all the panels sewn, just need to sew them to each other, line it, and make those 12 crucial buttonholes.

I'm pretty sure I like it.  Finished is good, yes?

So, I'll have another pieced panel, a print panel, a pieced panel, then end with a print panel.  This uses up every last inch of the Christmas print.  

I just started using a new system for remembering about a week ago.  It's's life-changing...I'm calling it "writing it down on paper".  I was trying to remember how big different runners and wall hangings that I made my girls were.  So before I gave Elisabeth this wall hanging to take to Wisconsin, I measured it AND WROTE IT DOWN.  I wrote down the measurements of Emily's table runner.  Even when making the shower curtain above, I am constantly having to make calculations then remembering them.  Funny thing...the weakest ink is stronger than the greatest memory.

Great looking shower curtain--I love this idea.
And I had to LOL at your new memory system. It works for me. Now if I could just remember where I wrote everything. : )

This made me smile Joan, I learned this only too well when I hit 50 :-)

Ohhh...I love your shower curtain! I've always wanted to make a pieced/quilted shower curtain.

I hear you on the memory thing. Things drop out of my head with amazing speed. I am trying to get better at writing things down...but it's a struggle! LOL
