    This is the quilt I've been working on, just couldn't bear to cut up the fabric too much so made windows.. I'm not sure how to quilt it...thought of stippling in the windows, but not sure I can do it. What would you do?

    I'm thinking there needs to be a little cat sitting in those windows.
    Applique a couple in there, then I don't know what else to do.
    Lot's of help, aren't I?

    Oh, wow, what a cool look! I love the way you put the batiks in the windows. As far as quilting it, I don't know what to tell you. It just looks great!

    Applique' - love the idea of the cats in the windows, what about some ivy or wisteria hanging over the top corner? Maybe stipple the window frames instead of the panes? Beautiful material!

    I like your ideas...I'll get out my embroidery machine out & try to practice stippling. I can't do it too good on my regular machine.

    Neat. Never would have thought to do something like that ! What a neat way to showcase the fabric.

    Nice quilt! I like how you did the windows! I think stippling or applique would be a nice touch.
