Here they are! My Quilt Block Curtains for the craft room! Today I bought a thicker and better quality curtain rod. The rod in the photos is slightly bent from the weight of the curtains and moves when the curtains are opened or closed!

The stained glass look was a pleasant surprise!

The curtains have a backing cut from the set of sheets we replaced recently when I bought new sheets.

Those curtains you made ROCK!!!

I see you have lots of crochet patterns. I know it is hard to know what you have but I am looking for a Vanna White pattern for a Christmas afghan. It is a white background with squares and each square has a Christmas wreath on it. I don't know which pattern book of hers it is in. I would be willing to buy the book if I knew that pattern was in it. A friend made me one years ago and I treasure it deeply. She is now 89 years old and all she can remember it was a Vanna White pattern. Can you help me?
