    Romon Shade

    I turned this Attic Windows quilt top into a roman shade with Warm Window insulated backing. Made for my sister to cover a VERY cold window that looked out onto a carport. She used to live at the coast but had to move closer to the Veterans hospital so her now disabled husband could get medical care. So I tried to create an illusion that she was looking out the window at the beach.

    That looks so neat, what a great way to address a drafty window & ugly view.

    Great job - she is going to be so happy to be able to look at the sea whenever she wants. I am going to have to think about how I can incorporate something like that for one of my windows.

    You were very successful with your illusion! Looks so nice instead of looking out onto a carport.

    Oh how cool! I love this idea. I love the coast and vacation there every chance I get, I would love to have a "view" like this on my wall! I'm sure she'll LOVE it.

    Very cool. I had to look up lapidary. Cool term for a hobby. I learn something new every day.

    Hearing the faint sound of the gulls, seeing the ebb & flow over the rocks, feeling the breeze on my face, my feet squishing in the sand. Wonder, where is my sunscreen?
    Your sister is so lucky to have YOU. It will certainly comfort her!
