    I finally finished the Roman Shade for my guest bedroom. It is a modified version of a Bargello pattern from Beth Ann Williams book "Colorwash Bargello Quilts" combined with the pieced roman shade techniques from Terrell Sunderman. She has free instructions and lots of good information at her website: http://www.terrelldesigns.com/ . IF I were to make this over, I would change a few things, but overall I'm pleased with how it turned out.

    THAT is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!! What a fantastic job. I have been thinking about making a shade for our computer room...Wow something like this would be wonderful. Was it hard?

    What do you know about top down roman shades? I have some I made last year and they do not cascade (fold over in layers) like yours do. I know I just have to knot them differently, but even after going to the terrell website I cannot figure out how to get them to cascade. In other words, they are secured on the bottom and when I put them down, they go down in one big loop instead of how yours look... folded nicely. Any suggestions anyone?
