valance w/ repeat question
Hi, I'm trying to get back into sewing again. I have sewed but many years ago and could always call mom for advice. My first project is going to be valances for kitchen windows. I found a mccalls pattern that is an easy one. The fabric I would like to use has a 25" vertical repeat and horizontal repeat of 27". My windows are huge!! Two of them 70"x70" and one 46"x46". I will be breaking it down into two panels for the big windows. I want to know if the valance for the big windows are 18" will that look ok with the repeat numbers? (THe pattern is for a 15" valance.)I am adding 3 inches to the pattern for the big windows. I realize I will not be able to get the entire pattern in the up and down length, but the colors are just what I need. Any help/advice would be appreciated.
