The author explains in clear words and many helpful diagrams how to design and construct a Roman shade from a quilt top. This is just the kind of book that makes you say, "Why didn't I think of this?" Then, once you have a look at the instructions and photos, you realize that she has done her research thoroughly and combined the best practices of quilting and of shade construction.The book includes instructions for making several Roman shades and a valance. It also teaches you how to adapt your own favorite quilt pattern to make a shade for any size window. The math is kind of complicated but just takes a little time to understand. If you can quilt or make a Roman shade, you can do this.Although I have made many Roman shades and a few quilts, this book provides ideas, instructions, and tips that make it worth every cent and more.

Terrell Sundermann's Pieced Roman Shades tells how to transform traditional quilt patterns into roman shades for the home. Quilters who want more practical display applications for their projects will relish new ideas on making practical window hangings out of quilt designs. Highly recommended.

A great book for quilters looking to display thier quilts in new ways. This book is very detailed so that you can create accurate and wonderful roman shades that help to insulate your windows. A great buy that I have refered to many, many times to make the roman shades that I now have in my house.

This is a very detailed guide to sewing your own roman shades. I'm not sure after reading it, that I want to make the shades, but if I decide to do it, this book shows how to piece blocks together before mounting them on the shade you build and mount yourself.

An ingenious idea that really makes roman shades much more beautiful. A quilt pattern is adapted to fit a shade. Clear instructions are given for figuring out measurments needed. I recommend it highly.

My book arrived in a timely manner and in great condition! The ad was accurate, and I paid a fair price :) I am looking forward to beginning a fun project featured in this book... thanks!

great ideas, lacking a general diagram... add this amount here.. less this. It is a good guide to creating a roman shade from a quilt design.
