Problem and Solution

Our apartment has an Eastern exposure which we love;however there is a small issue with the early morning sun coming through our window.

I had been rigging a temporary curtain to block it, but took it down every day.  Christy wanted me to show it, but it was way too ugly for me to post here.  Needless to say I wanted to fix the problem more elegantly.  I decided to quilt a window covering.

Christy and I decided on white with green and purple blocks.  Here’s the first block coming together.  As i progressed I decided on a layout on our design wall.

Finally I got it pieced and layered.  Initially I was going to use straps to hang the shade as you can see from this pre-quilted photo, but I didn’t like the look of the straps.

Christy is doing the hand sewing on the binding so I will wait to show you the finished product and tell you about the hanging solution we came up with when it’s done.
