    I call this one "Watching the harbor through attic windows." It is for the local Christian Women's group to auction at their fall festival. Almost all the fabric came from WalMart - except the harbor fabric.

    Mimee, that is really lovely! I like the "view" out the windows, and I like how you did the corners, too.

    Beautiful. Christian Women's Club? I used to be really involved in our local group, until I had to go back to work. Loved our fall festival. I got to be the bidding announcer a couple of years. I really miss being involved.

    Very nice Mimee4. Do you live anywhere near Shamokin, PA? I notice you are in central PA. What a great look for the attic window quilt! Sue
