I am NOT a mathmatician and if I can't figure something out, I may have to send it to one of my brothers :lol: :lol: :lol: I thought it would be fun to see if I could make the bottom area bigger like a window seat and maybe applique in some cushions and a cat laying on the seat???? :lol: :lol: :lol:

    If you can do such a beautiful job on the attic windows, I think you could make lovely stained glass quilts, too :D It is like the applique work you have already done :D

    That would be lovely Amma, I have done the traditional attic window with that panel, and I do have another one of that design that I could use, but I am rather concerned about the angles, but if I print a large copy out then match the window panes on the photo to the actual panel I maybe close.
    I now have something to worry about in bed .

    Let me give you the site where I got the patterns for the dolphins and the orca wale. I've posted this website before and several people liked it, but I don't remember if you ever saw it.

    Cordelia those are amazing stained glass panels you did and that site I have earmarked for ME Elle
    You know those folks at Paned Expressions are real pros, serious artists. They made this pattern for me:

    Wow, i've never done an attic window, the bay window looks awesome. I think if you take the bay window and save it to your photo section, enlarge it a bit, and print it off, yes, the dimensions will be smaller, but all of the angles will be exact, and you can take the angles from that, or you can cut the photo into smaller pieces, and have them enlarged...hmmm, something like that lol

    I've been working on an Attic Window Quilt also, my niece gave me the shark material and the Hawiian print and asked if I could make her a quilt, this is what I came up with and its not a hard one it goes together pretty fast as I made the squares 5" x 5"

    Amma: I tried using the half square triangles. Worked great! I did a test block but it sure beat those awful "Y" seams!

    Great job. All these attic windows makes me want to try one. I also saw an explanation the the 1/2 square for them looks much easier.

    Hello, I am doing or trying to do attic windows too. Each the internet for attic windows and came up with this site. :)
    It actually works :shock: :shock: :D :D :D . you have to follow the directions, then it is so simple. It is faster because you don't have to stop,look for the 1/4" for the Y seam. I hope I did this link correctly.
