    Window Sill?

    I know many of you will know the answer to this question. What is the name of the pattern that looks like you're looking through windows? Each block has a square and then a bottom sash and a side with a miter, which form the side of the window and the sill.

    window sill?

    Seems like it's called 'attic window'.

    There are free patterns for it also.

    Here is a link including patterns that don't have the dreaded "Y" seam

    Sounds like attic window, but I'm no expert.

    Could be the "shadow box" you are thinking of.

    Have a pattern of this and the slanted corner looks rather daunting. Has anyone been successful at this? Once saw a quilt in this pattern, and that specific corner was a sewn-in half-square triangle, w/ the matching colors of the "sills"!

    I have done Attic Windows using the HST in the corner, rather than the set-in seam. It works great for solids and pretty well for prints. If you are using any kind of directional fabric it definitely shows.
