    Birds in the Window

    Here's my latest quilt. I always wanted to make an Attic Window and when I was at the LQS I found the right fabric so I just went for it. I'm pleased with the result.

    It looks great, and the quilting is very nice too. I like your idea - we have so many birds in our yard this year, now that both cats have passed away. We miss them, but are enjoying the feathered friends.
    KEEP CALM and CARRY ON!!

    Looks great. I love the fabrics and the quilting.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    Very pretty. Almost looks like your seeing your garden thru the window.

    Your color choices are perfect. Your quilt is just beautiful. And the feathers along the side are so clever.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    Gorgeous. Love the colors and look. I have a different panel of birds I want to use for an attic window quilt. Hard telling when I will get to it.
