queen sized window panel quilts
Hi, I am fairly new here and looking for ideas to finish a panel quilt, queen size.
I have made my panel into a 'window' and thought I might put rectangle blocks around the window frame, to look like an inside brick wall to make it the size I need. By making it look like you are viewing the outside through the 'window', I thought the fabric around the window needed to look like a wall. What do you think? How do I find 'window' quilts here. Not so much attic windows , mine has a large picture window in the center and now measures 48 1/2 x 53 3/4.
Thanks for any response or idea.

Here are some ideas from pinterest & google:


this one has brick walls:


Attic windows quilt pattern seems to be popular...but without walls around the 'window'.

Would love to see picture when you decide what to do.

I thought I could edit at the top and add a picture of what I did but I don't see an edit.

Well here it is so farAttachment 604268 I cut a few 'bricks' to try but not sure what size they are 'suppose' to be. Are these too large? (4 X 8 finish) I wanted to keep it 'manly'Attachment 604269 but tell me what you think or give me more ideas of what else I could do. Also, wanted to make it 'easy' for me, so I can finish top asap, for Christmas.

I love the brick idea....very creative. I think it looks fantastic...great colors to surround the window.

Looks great! You're doing a fantastic job. I'm not much help with the border, though.

Is this the sort of a brick wall you would like?

Thank you all for encouraging me. Also thanks for all the links. I love the blue brick quilt and also the pdf. I didn't have the pattern or pdf for the window. I just looked at some windows on net that I liked and kept referring back to the photos I saved. I must say, I am pleased with the window part. Now if I could just keep it going to make a queen size......
