    Philip can you suggest where a square mitre grid, similar to the one in your photos, can be purchased please?

    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.

    Dear Philip
    Please could you share your pictures on how to do these as am getting confused with how to deal with the back part of the roman blinds contrast edge. I just seem to be left with a lot of bulk.
    Many thanks
    Natalie

    Hi Natalie

    I don't have the pictures anymore, when I next do a border I'll take pictures. Don't worry too much about the bulk as it's going to happen, add the border and fold around to the back as you would normally when making a blind. Cut away on the excess at the mitre.

    Good luck
