    I love 30 minute projects almost as much as I love making quilts. I can’t seem to locate the pattern for the microwave bowl. Help? I’m sure it’s there but I’m stuck atm. Thanks, Becky.

    Rosemary, Here’s the link for the Microwave Bowl Holder:

    I followed the “kitchen projects” link in the first paragraph and then followed the link from there to the actual post where she gives the directions. That’s the link for you. Takes you directly to the bowl holder pattern. (paste it into your location bar if it doesn’t link)

    I thought it would be really easy to explain to someone I know from a quilt shop that I’d like sidelight curtains with narrow quilts in the middle. I was hoping she could do the tops & bottoms, and I would sew in the pieces I want to a lining attached to the rod pocket tops & bottoms. She would like a tutorial for this, which I can’t find.Can someone help me out with this? There are so many “how to sew curtains” videos, but it’s skimpy on the sidelights, if anything exists at all, and nothing that I can find with a narrow quilt attached. I want, or need, the sidelight curtains to be for an 8.75″ rod pocket, but then gather on a 5.5″ quilt panel in the middle. This is because I’m curtaining something already hung on my front door.
