Insulate Windows with Quilted Bedspreads

Make insulated window shades from quilted bedspreads to insulate your rooms and stay warmer in the winter. First, measure the windows. You want the shades to have the same measurements as the windows in height and width. Cut the bedspread to the right size. Add 1 inch on both vertical sides for hems, and add about 4-5 inches to the length for the tension rod casing and the bottom hem. The easy thing is that since it's so bulky and quilted you can fold under the edge only once and it won't unravel. Do this on all four sides, making sure your top casing is open so the tension rod will fit. Hang your new shades and stay warm! You can tie each side of the shades up with a cord or heavy ribbon if you'd like more light.
