Cute curtains and easy to follow tutorial.

Love the soda pop bottles! What a fun tutorial and the idea to make it a curtain is awesome. I can just see it hanging in my kitchen. Paper piecing is a blast! Thanks again for the sweet pattern.


Very cute!

Donna Baker

what a fun idea for curtains in your new home - congratulations!! great tutorial - thanks for sharing!

I came over from Stash Manicure. What a great project! For some reason hot sauce bottles got into my brain when I saw the bottles! I can't wait to see your curtain put together and hanging up!


So darn cute!!! I follow Madamme Samm's Sew We Quilt Blog and absolutely love the pop bottles you've created! Thanks for a great tutorial!


I'm a new follower. What fun! You've taken paper piecing to a whole new dimension (BIG!).

I also saw your yo yo tally. My hubby won three (3) vintage yo yo pillows at our local quilt guild meeting last night. I plan to blog about it, and would like to link to your yo yo challenge. I'll add your button to my blog.


Thanks for the cute tutorial!


Nice to get to know you and thanks for the tutorial!

How cute! I saw this over at Madam Samm's and had to come tell you that you have me re-inspired about a curtain I've been mulling over to hide a small storage area in my kitchen/dinette area. I'm not sure I'll do your pop-bottles, but it made me think of some kitcheny paper piecing patterns I already have and how they might work for this project. Thank you for helping me think outside my usual curtain box. LOL


amazing penny!!! totally amazing and cool!

I came here from Sew We Quilt, and am glad I did. I like your pop curtain, but I especially liked your scrubby post, and have ordered your pattern. I love scrubbies, and mine is in need of replacement. Thanks, Kathie L in Allentown


I've never tried paper piecing before, but your pop bottles might just be the right pattern for me to start on. They are so cute. Thanks for posting your tutorial over at Madame Samm's today. I enjoyed it very much.


Oh my this is way too cute - may I use your pic to link to you on my next tutorial post? I just did one today, but I'm thinking ahead to the next one! I love this, Penny!

You are the master at paper piecing - love those bottles... awesome!! I am now following you!


This is a great tutorial. I have been very nervous about trying paper foundation piecing because it seems so complicated, but with your directions and all your photos, I think I might be able to just about pull this off! Thanks! :)


Really really cute!!!

Thanks for the great tutorial at Sew We Quilt! I thought I was a long-time follower, but when I searched, I could not find my avatar, so now it is uber official! LOL

Paper piecing is not one of my favorite ways of quilting but so many of the looks are so incredible. I think I just need to do more. Thanks for the tutorial.


this is so cute. I am so glad you did this tutorial. I am determined to learn to paper piece like you do. I covet all the cute stuff you make.

What a super fun pattern, Penny! Makes me think of the Pop Shoppe in 'the old days' and the red cases of bottles my Dad would bring home full of all different colours of soda.


I've found your blog from the Stash Manicure site. Such a fun tutorial you shared there today. Time to look through your blog and see what else inspires me.
