I had planned on sewing one panel per window because I still have blackout panels to sew, too. The plan is for them to be fitted to the inside, attaching to the inside trim with velcro.
But once I hung a single panel over the window, it was obvious it needed 2 full panels so it didn't look like I was cutting corners or being cheap.
So with one window complete, I now need to order 6 more yards for the second one. ha!
I used my "Lake Emily Summer Roses" in blueberry blue, printed on Spoonflower's 55% linen 45% cotton. The fabric has a wonderfully soft hand but is quite substantial.
One of my favorite parts are my cotton fabric tags, which I attached to the front of each panel, in the corner by the hem. I'm darned proud of these and I want to claim them!
Here is the link to the page where you too, can order this pattern in fabrics, wallpaper or gift wrap:
