    They are called patchwork rulers, or quilters grids and I bought mine from eBay

    You can also get them from any quilters shop or suppliers.

    Hi Philip, I have looked at your instructions to make a mitred corner on a roman blind which was very helpful. How do you progress from there, on the back of the fabric to finish it off and look like the front mitred corner please? I found your pictures the most helpful so I would be so grateful if you could teach me how to finish the back of the blind. Thanks, Sally

    Hello Sally L

    Welcome to the forum - The border becomes an extension of the main fabric and is treated as such. Once you're attached the border slip stitch the mitres closed and turn in the sides and hem as normal.

    One thing you should be aware of though - Make sure you calculate your pockets allowing for the bottom border to show when the blind is raised.
