Quiltilated Window Shade

Isn't this a good idea. I had thought (notice I said thought) about this a while back but never did anything about it. I'm glad someone did.
This is the front

This is the back

These are made like roman shades and being quilted they provide more insulation than a regular curtain.
I have thought about hanging one of my show quilts in front of my bedroom window but it wasn't big enough so I just put the idea on hold for awhile. At least if I did that I could show off my quilts around my cracker box of a house.

I have actually made 'quilt curtains' which lasted for many years and then the last washing, they really said UGHHH and they went out with the trash. But I don't have the desire to do it again.

I've never heard of this, but the quilted window shade concept sounds like a good idea. It is pretty and would add to make your home warmer. Be sure to post photos if you try it.

Love the roman shade idea. I just hung one of my smaller quilts in a window in the spare bedroom. It doesn't quite fill the window but it still looks nice and blocks some of the outside light at night.

Those are nifty - have to remember that when we move next year.

Great idea. I like the back as much as the front too.
