    My latest little Critters.

    Name:  small.jpg

Size:  51.0 KBI bought this fabric a long time ago, and took pics of the quilt made with it at my LQS. I lost the pics so decided to do my own thing. I forgot I had set the cutest critters aside, so I made another quilt with them.

    I think I lost the attic window effect I was going for.

    Jingle, I'm thinking if I had quilted the lower part of the same color I may have got the "shelf" effect.

    I think it has the look of columns along a wall with the critters being pictures hung on the wall. Very nice.

    Thx Tess, I see that too. The critters are back in a shadow box, or deep in the shelves.

    They are just too cute. I love them.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Thanks ladies! I was proud of myself for learning how to do the "attic windows" from a youtube video. My corners actually met up. I didn't do it the way where you use half-square triangles in the corner. I didn't have enough fabric to fix anything (not that there are crooked blocks or anything, lol, just design choices to make it wonky) or for many options so I was just happy I finally used the fabric I bought last year. The LQS made blocks of the pictures outlined with solids with sashing between. The fabric was all from the same line. I don't remember the name of it.

    And here I was taking a good look at your picture because I liked the effect you created and I wanted to use it! I love this quilt and the critters.

    I think the thinner blue frame is what lost the attic window effect but now it looks like very deep shelves with them sitting at the back of the shelf. I like it.

    The fabric below the "shelf" is all the same size. I'm thinking I should have quilted some thread in there to get the effect?
