Ashanti Curtains

Recently I posted a photograph of a curtain sample for approval. The design, based on an image in the Fortuny "Ashanti" fabric is colored per the designers request and laid on a beautiful (and heavy) Rogers & Goffigon linen. (Click on Fortuny to see their new website)
The wall of curtains is worked around 3 pairs of french doors. The first and last of the 16 total panels consisted of 2.5 widths of fabric, with the remaining two panels five widths each. Leading edge and hem were highlighted with the embroidery - the above photo is 5 folded panels showing two leading edge treatments and 3 hem sections. Each panel in the photograph is 1/4 of the actual width.
Because of the complexity of the panel joins, I have grouped the four sections and named them A,B,C & D. Within each letter, each panel is then marked according to a corresponding drawing - 1 through 16. Next stop, Valley Drapery...
