Greek key ribbon shades

Three shades embellished with grosgrain ribbon applied in a Greek Key pattern are among my top 3 most challenging, most fun, most satisfying, and most successful projects ever:

They're inside mounted and only 37" long, so when raised they don't go up very far because we wanted to show the corner pattern:

The fabric is wonderful, and perfect for this project- a sort of cotton duck but linen, and glazed like chintz.  The trim is 1" grosgrain.  Yes, it's still wrinkled here in the photo- but steamed out after installation.

I'll do a separate post on how I applied the ribbon.  But right off the bat I have to thank my CHF Forum Friends who provided so many suggestions for fabrication; but most especially Liz Hawkes whose method I adapted. 

The designer called as soon as installation was complete to tell me that they looked fabulous and everybody involved on the project was thrilled.
