    Your sister is so lucky to have YOU. It will certainly comfort her!
    I'm originally from Coos Bay....I so miss family, friends, the ocean, mountains, etc. This is an absolutely fabulous window covering.

    BEAUTIFUL JOB! Wow, what a great idea for a Roman shade. I love it!

    I like to make lists. I also like to leave them laying on my sewing table and then guess what's on the list while at the fabric store. Fun game.

    What a clever way to cover up a not-so-nice view. It looks like the seaside to me!

    That is so clever, and so thoughtful! (And so well done.)

    I may have to "steal" this idea for the window in my husband's study...

    This is beautiful. Did you start with a ready-made roller shade?

    No, I sewed my quilt top to the Warm Window quilted roman shade backing that another guild member put on the free table at a meeting. I actually bought a cheap roman shade at a local discount store to harvest the hardware for the top. I also had to buy plastic rings and cording for the back. The Warm Window fabric had directions, you can also download directions from their website. It has been up at my Sister's for two years now, really does the trick to block cold drafts.
