Patterns for a Matching Quilt, Shams and Bedskirt Included!
What a clever idea to use a quilt for a window valance! Choose fabrics that pick up colors in the room, or for a bedroom, create a matching quilt from the same fabrics.
We love the clever hanging tabs with button accents. They could easily be added to another pattern to adapt it into a window valance.
This free pattern by designer Fabric Mosaics comes with instructions for a matching quilt, shams and bedskirt.
If pinwheels aren’t your thing, take a look at articles about narrow table runners in our table toppers category. There are several options there that could work as a valance, although you may need to alter the length to fit the window.
Another idea is to string several of your favorite quilt blocks together until you achieve the correct length. Don’t forget to take into account the width of borders.
The finished “Pinwheels Valance” is 51″ x 16″ but you could easily add or delete pinwheels to make it fit your window.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
