Thank you for the comments, the pattern makes it easy and I think the piping is what makes them.

This is amazing. Your additional sewing touches have turned what is essentially a basic design into something so impressive. A must see in blow up view!

Very nice, and thank you for providing such a thorough review. I really need to make something for the living room and dining room windows. I love the effect of the piping/braid at the lower edge.

Thanks so much for all the kind comments. I added a picture of the mounting board with L brackets to see how easy it is to make one.

Thanks for your detailed review and helpful suggestions. I have this pattern, and am intending to make View D for 4 windows. I need to modify the width to fit a double window, and was putting it off due to my relative lack of experience. Your suggestions and shortcuts are very helpful!

Very custom and professional coming from a former window treatment sewer. I have made many valances mounted on boards and yours looks A+ people pay big bucks for just this look. RadarRadiance your sewing skills did you justice figuring out pleats, trimming the curves and mounting it on the board. I swear I have sewed that fabric into something for someone??? Enjoy your accomplishment :)
