    33. Turn the block and roll the next edge over like you did the first. Try to have the points slightly overlap the previous point just a little.

    35. Do the other two edges the same way. And here’s the finished window. Pretty, eh?

    36. That's pretty much it. You can join rows to rows in the same way that you joined blocks to blocks, and then fill in those newly created windows with glass in the same way. At the edges of the quilt you can use 1/2 a glass fabric, or use no glass at all and just turn the frame there and stitch it down. After the quilt is done, just do a binding like you normally would any quilt.

    That's it! Enjoy! :D

    Thanks Eddie! I have always wanted to know how this was done since I admire the quilt. Must put it on my "Someday To Do" list. Great pictures too.

    Thanks Eddie for the time and effort you have put into your tuts.
    They are very easy to understand and follow.
    Can't say I will ever do a CW, but if I do, I will use this tut.
    Your quilt will be stunning as usual.
