NEW APPLIQUE DESIGN!!

CHICAGO

A strong vertical design that would work best in the lower corners of a curtain panel. It's abstract pattern is inspired by the stylized geometric motifs of the late Prairie School. Choose any color scheme. We recommend doing the stitching in a different color from the applique shapes, for example, in terra cotta with antique gold stitching. Slanted rectangles are 2" high x 1 1/2" wide, length of horizontal and vertical lines customized proportional to curtain panel.

CURTAIN TALK

Face Length or Face Width: the measurement of part of the curtain that faces in to the room, i.e. a tab may be 6" long but when its folded over, its face length is 3"
