    Because I'm not confident on the mitered corners, I used these directions. http://www.quiltaholics.com/bom/attwin.htm

    I used a block to do some practice quilting last nite with my free motion foot. That's going to take come practice. :lol: It was very slow going and not very accurate. I'm thinking of maybe sending this one out.

    I upped the the stitch length to 2.2, which made it all go so much smoother. No more bunching in the beginning. Yay! Thanks all for that tip.

    That is sooo cute. I like all the colors. Have you thought about how to quilt it? It just hit me when I saw it, you should quilt round mickey mouse faces with ears in the center of each window. Just my idea.

    :) :)

    They look fantastic! It looks like a picture rather than a pieced quilt. Very nice. Wish my attempt looked that good.

    Thanks for posting the quiltaholics site. I'm going to try that attic window design. It looks easier than others I have seen . And your blocks look great.
