The top is assembled and the backing is assembled. Had to piece the backing because of width requirements. Will post pics tomorrow, if I can get it done then. I am using batting that is made of recycled plastic bottles. The girl scouts are big into reuse, reduce, recycle. So I thought it was fitting to use this batting. Last year I made my DGD Roman shades for her bedroom from fabric she chose; turned out to be recycled bottles also. One thing about the batting, the fabric really clings to it, so am not going to do anything but pin the layers together.
