    I fixed it

    When doing my bowed attic window, I had a miss cut. I hate reading directions so I was frustrated. This is my save a the panel. I think it turned out pretty good. It will be for my mom who recently sold her home on the lake. She will be surprised.

    What were the dimensions of your panel? What size is each window pane before the frame?

    Thank you all so much she is 89 and lived at her house for 35 years. It does look just like her lake. I made her a Christmas tree attic window she put it on the back of her sofa and told me everyday " It is like I am looking out the window!"

    How lovely! Perfect gift for your mom.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I love your quilt and I am sure your Mom will also. I am wondering where you found your pattern for the bowed window that you originally wanted to make. I have been looking for the pattern and can't seem to find a written one. Thanks for the information.
