    The top for my stained Glass wall hanging, Pansy Window is finally done. I got the pattern from Chantals Stained Glass Patterns http://free-stainedglasspatterns.com/1set01.html

    She does the most awesome designs and has some of the most generous Copyrite Terms I've seen. I had to redraw it a little bit to make it suitable for fabric but only a little. It's not quilted yet, I will just go round all the binding with a walking foot, but will need to do something in the larger spaces. I see spirals suiting in there, unfortunately the vision exceeds the skill level :? :lol: , so we will have to see what happens.

    You really can't tell it is fabric...it truly looks like stain glass. You did
    an excellant job of choosing fabric. This one is really a work of art...
    with a lot of heart and soul tossed in. Beautiful!!!

    Thankyou so much everyone for the lovely comments, I'm tickled pink, that you like it :P

    Quilting turtle: It really isn't as big a job as it looks, it's all machine stitched, the fabrics are stuck to the background with a glue stick and then I machine stitched the binding (both edges) around the pieces. The tricky bit is working out which binding to stitch first, so that it tucks under the next. I wouldn't start with such a big one, but give it a go, I think you'd be pleasently surprised at how well it goes :P

    Mouse & Moonpi: The fabrics are mostly hand dyes, which I buy from a lady who does beautiful work, there is quite a bit of movement in them, which I find really excellent for stained glass or applique, really good price too compared to other fabrics in NZ

    Cathie: I wish I lived closer to everyone too, I'd luv to be able to get together with everyone.

    Elle & Janstar: I wouldn't be able to do a tute on this particular quilt as I don't own the copyrite, but will definately bear something like this in mind for the future. It really is alot easier than it looks. Pretty busy at the moment, got the BBlock coming up & I just realised that I'm doing the Aug 1st BOM (how did that happen, I thought it was ages away :lol: ) and I got this other thing I'm sposed to be working on :? :lol: but will think on it and see what I can come up with :wink:

    Patrice: Speechless :shock: I don't believe it :lol: Cheers
