    I made the attic window for my sister and gave it to her last April.
    I machine quilted her quilt. 1st one I have done.
    The square in a square I am making for my daughter who loves orange and blue. I haven't done the borders yet. I was thinking 6" squares of alternating colors then corner stones of the print.
    Any suggestions would be great.

    Thanks for looking
    Carol
