    This is the second stained glass quilt I've created. The first one was entered into the Texas State Fair and received an honorable mention. This particular quilt took me 10 years to complete, simply because of all the applique involved and life getting in the way. I call this The Rose Window, inspired by cathedral windows. I created a quilting stitch (I call the Waffle Stitch) on the first quilt, and used it again on this quilt around the middle rose. Tell me what you think.

    Thank you so much. The close up of the center rose shows the stitch. It's a simple L stitch with a reverse every other row. I did it by accident on the first quilt and loved the results so much that I used it on this quilt. It's easier if you have even circles to guide you, but if you are OCD about measurements, you shouldn't have any problem. The stitch has been copyrighted via the State Fair (I documented the creation of the stitch in my quilt description), and other public forums where I uploaded the photos of it.

    I'm impressed by all the details in this quilt! No wonder it took so long to create! You should really be proud of this. Your fabrics really do look like stained glass! Amazing!

    I can see why it took you so long to finish that quilt. It is beautiful and you should be proud.
