    Attic Window

    This fabric was from an elderly lady and it reminded me of an Amish farm setting so I decided to use the Attic Window pattern to resemble looking out a second story window and seeing the farm setting. This quilt was donated to a Children's Cancer Hospital. I make approximately 5 baby size quilts a year and donate each year.

    thank you for your donation every year. A quilt like yours gives hope to the child and the parents that
    a cure is not far off. Its a lovely quilt.

    How cute! I'm guessing the fabric is old and no longer available?
