    My new panel

    I just bought a quilt panel. I want to do it using the attic window pattern.Any ways for me to practice without messing up my panel? This is my first one and the picture has alot of scenery up close and far away. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
    Thanks from Teresa in North Carolina

    Hi, welcome to qb! Is there any way you can post a pic of the panel? I am such a visual person, it really helps to see things for me. Do you mean make the attic window quilt, as in cutting the panel? Or is that a name for the type of quilt stitching you want to do on a solid panel? I think to create the attic window you have to cut the fabrics, but maybe someone else will come along who knows better..
    Regards,

    I did just have a thought (scary...lol) I wonder if you can applique the "window frame" parts in dark fabric on top of the panel? I don't know, but that may be a way to do it...probably harder to make, tho...

    Hi Teresa - After being afraid of it for years, I finally got some courage to make an Attic Windows quilt and found it quite simple. If you've made 45 degree mitered borders, then you have pretty much all you need to start. I would make a single block first to practise. Remember that when you cut up your panel you will lose 1/2" for every block. Google Images has some wonderful Attic Windows made from panels to give you courage.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Here is a link for making the easy attic window. I would suggest you measure your panel & decide how large you want each section to be cut. Choose a number that you won't be wasting too much of your panel. Lay it out on the floor & place your "window sashing" fabrics & make the little corners & stitch together row by row. http://www.straw.com/equilters/libra...ticwindow.html

    In the quick reply box can you see a row of icons? If you can the 3rd one from the right is the insert image box and you select the photo from your computer. You may need to resize your photo first so that it is small enough.
