    A couple of months ago, a member on the board posted a pretty quilt made from a horse panel that I admired. She PMed me that she had an extra panel and that I was welcome to it. How nice was that!! Well, I got the panel, and kept looking at it for inspiration on what to do with it... I am a big horse lover, and every horse in the panel looks like a horse I have ridden, so I decided to make it into a window quilt that I can hang to look at and remember the horses. It took me a while and lots of math scribbling to come up with the layout. Sewing the attic windows, however, wasn't as hard as I though it would be, and the quilt went together pretty fast. I attempted a ripples-like motif for quilting. All in all, I am very pleased with how it turned out. It measures about 38 by 45''.

    Thanks all for looking.
    :P

    Excellent! I would love to try an attic window some day, but the color choice frightens me.

    That is so pretty. I've never made an attic window but it's on my list.
