Well it's up ..................

My "Chelsea", all blue, roman blind (an extension of Kaffe Fassett's Jewel Squares in Glorious Patchwork)



It's lined in white so the daylight filters through the paler fabrics ..................


 
It was hard work ............. right to the end.  The law of averages is that if there is maneuverability in something then there's going to be movement.  I did start to quilt it but changed my mind ............... it was too difficult getting the fabrics to lay flat together without shifting and looks better up without the stitching anyway.  I'm really pleased and feel so much lighter having got up this morning knowing that there was nothing further to do to it!
