New project or old?

I've been in my new house for almost exactly a year now. When I first moved in I started making curtains for my living room windows. They all have plantation shutters so all I needed were valances. I crocheted a couple and knit a couple (one still in progress) and I have the transom on the door yet to do. 

I've had some different ideas (including a brief thought of getting a new door) but here's where I think we're going. 

found 4 motifs in the Claire Burkhard book, 50 New Bobbin Lace Patterns that are attached by a joining into a patchwork project but I'll need to adapt it to fit the piece to the window. 
There are 4 different designs and they work up super quick. Here's my first block that only took about 4 hours or so. 

I may play with a crocheted border depending on how tired I get making blocks!!

There are 3 other designs that should all work up equally quickly.
