Thanks for the pics! You setup looks great! Although my frame will be metal I'm thinking about attaching wood to the bottom edges and wrapping it in shade cloth (like in your second picture) before securing it to the frame. Also it's good to know I can join pieces so easily because I was wondering how I would go about attaching the front and back sections. Looks like you used a running stitch? Also did you find out what percentage the shade was? I can't find anything from Home Depot at 50%... it's either 30% or 70+%.
