    It's not quilted (yet?). I made this wall (window?) hanging last year. All the fabric except for the 'flowers' are hand dyed. The flowers are left over hexagons from another quilt project. I made it to put in a specific spot in my stairwell and while trying it out there, I realized it would just fit in the stairwell window, so I tacked it up and decided not to quilt it because I liked the way the sun came thru to make it look like stained glass. I had tried several window treatments there and did not like any of them. This 'treatment' worked

    Gorgeous! I sure hope it doesn't fade. Quilting fabric isn't treated with ultraviolet protection like home dec fabric is.

    Absolutely beautiful but I had this same concern. I wonder if there's some kind of fixing product that could be sprayed on? :D

    It's like it was made to go there!! :) Could you get a pane of UV protect glass to go behind it? It won't stop the sun from shining through it, but will help protect it a little longer. Maybe?

    Its art whether its a quilt or not. I call it painting with fabric :) and I bet it looks very nice when the sun is behind it.

    i have some plexiglass we got from home depot to put over youngest dd's desk...her crafts were tough on the paint!

    it is only 1/8" and has uv protection in it...cuts on table saw, or hd can cut it for you.. it would be lighter & non breakable unlike glass...

    I'm sure it will fade but since I used acrylic paint to 'dye' the background fabric, it seems to be holding up pretty well. When the sun makes it start to disintegrate it, I'll just make another!

    You can get water protection, but I don't know about UV protection; something to check out.
