Patchwork lampshade

 I spent a long time looking at images of patchwork lampshades on the net before I figured out how I wanted to do mine.  I basically sewed 1 1/2 inch wide strips together to make a large rectangle of fabric, and then adhered the fabric to the lampshade material (cutting the material in the proper form to make the shade was the worst part), cut off the excess fabric, and glued the edges down on the inside of the lampshade with craft glue.  You can see my sloppy fabric edges on the inside when the lamp is lit, but oh well.
