    This is the first stained glass quilt, entered in the Texas State Fair, and the handmade chenille quilt. Both are king size.

    These blocks were made from pictures of actual stained glass panes.

    This isn't currently entered at the fair. I entered it 10 years ago and received an honorable mention for it.

    Those are both lovely. Is the stained glass an original pattern?

    I used actual stained glass panes that I found on the Internet, to make these blocks, yes.

    The Waffle stitch on this quilt is on the bottom row, last block on the right (next to the blue Morning Glories). You can see it better on the other stained glass quilt I posted in this board.

    I love stained glass, have only made panels and wall-hangings. Love your flowers on the chenille one. Thanks for sharing.
