Has anyone ever used a quilt top as a shower curtain?

No, actually it never occurred to me.  You'd have to use a separate plastic liner hanging on the inside to protect the quilt from soap scum wouldn't you? Would you only use a single layer of flannel instead of both a backing and batting?

Interesting thought.

I have seen this done in pictures in magazines. I think to use a completed top would make it too heavy. But, you do need to use a liner. It is a great look.

I've made a shower curtain that looks like a quilt top and lined it with bleached muslin. The plastic liner hangs separately from the shower curtain. Made it about 10 years ago and it still looks like new.

I made one a few years back and I found a new pattern in the Moda Bake Shop blog. I didn't use batting and I do use a fabric liner on the inside.

I made one a few years ago.  I lined the back of it with cotton.  It didn't need a liner because it hangs over the front of the shower doors (not my favorite thing to look at but a necessary evil.)  I did make a header and made buttonholes in the header to put the shower hooks in.  In our master bath, I couldn't find a shower curtain I liked and I haven't had the time to make one, so I used a wooden curtain rod, closet rod brackets, cafe curtain rod hooks with clips, and a drapery.  When I get around to making a new quilt shower curtain, I can just clip the quilt on to the rod and won't have to put the buttonholes in it.  Hope this helps...

I have made a shower curtain  "quilt"  with no lining just backing.  Put buttonholes in the top to hook my shower hooks thru.  Looks great.  I do use one of the plastic shower liners behind it.  Looks the same as it did many years ago when I made it.
