    This is totally pieced. The black part is one-inch strips sewn at the quarter inch on each edge leaving the half inch showing.problem is when the light is shining through, you can see the seam allowances of the colored fabric. You normally would not see this on a quilted piece. My thoughts are...IF I ever make another...make strips for the back side as well. Using bias on these does not work well.

    Gorgeous! I hope your window is tinted so the sun or light doesn't ruin your beautiful work!

    I think this might be one of my next projects as I have a sunroom - the light is too bright in summer and the room heats up terribly -but something like this would be beautiful to hang in the doorway leading out to teh sunroom to keep the heat out there - and yet give beauty to the room. ... a great way to use up odds 'n ends of fabric to make up something gorgeous as stained glass... This is just beautiful - thank you for sharing.

    Your roman shade is WONDERFUL! I love the beautiful colors you used and the way the light shines though it. You are inspiring me to get to work on a couple of these myself that are currently in one of my UFO boxes.
