Curtains for our restaurant

May 03, 2012

View from the inside of the restaurant.

My husband needed new curtains for his restaurant to replace black velvet ones,  he wanted to make it more interesting and let the light in at the same time.  This window is two stories high.  I had a big collection of fabric and decided to use it for this project.  I wanted to make it very pleasing to the eye.  So my first concern was to use the golden rule, all the measurements had to go in a ratio of 1.618.  I cut all the fabric and separated it so all the different kinds of fabric would be well distributed.  They ended up being 6 panels and we loved the results.  I hope you like them too.

    Yes I did, but they are divided in six big panes so they could be handled and moved. I did not put anything behind so they would look like stained glass. Thank you for your comment!

    Wow! Those are absolutely beautiful! It looks like stained glass. Did you sew all the little blocks together?
