    Roman Shade - done

    Lessons learned...
    Overlap and sew down black seams. The light shows through them.

    Gorgeous for sure! The seams could just as easily be window frame showing through. It's fabulous.

    You've got a winner there! I've really enjoyed following your progress. Fabulous! Remember, it's always good to learn a lesson - especially when you are working with your own inspiration.

    Very pretty!!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Beautiful. Makes me want to do one for my kitchen. Wasn't sure what you meant by sew down seams. It looks like you used some kind of seam binding. Love the look of stain glass.

    Fantastic. You did a wonderful job.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.
