The doors of my sewing room are French doors, which doesn't accommodate much privacy or the ability to hide a mess. I stole the idea to cover the windowpanes with AMH voile from this post on Tickle and Hide, I wish I could claim it was my own original idea. I followed this tutorial to apply the voile to the glass- so simple and cheap- using hot water and corn starch.
For several weeks, I debated with myself on whether I should do this at all. Westwood Acres had voile Field Study bundles on sale and I finally pulled the trigger when I noticed they had only one left. I don't have a lot of voile in my stash and I love the saturated and bright colors of these fabrics.
I was thinking today about how I have been gravitating to non-giant-quilt projects and it feels good to do some different things lately. I am also enjoying the prospect of decorating my home the way I like it: I don't want it to look like a giant modern fabric explosion but I am not going to worry about what other people might think either.
