    What a Gorgeous way to cover your sliding glass door's & it's so beautiful to boot!! Did you use the Fun & Done pattern to make your quilt covering's? I really like the stained glas look.
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    I have often thought of making a quilt to go over my sliding glass doors. Seems like cold air gets in no matter what I do and this would fix the problem! Yours is just beautiful!

    Wow...that is so pretty!!! i never thought of that .... but this would be the perfect solution to my south facing French doors - and everyone's right - with the light shining through it really does look like stained glass. Thanks for the idea.....one more project to add to my wish list !!!
    Of all the things i've lost, i miss my mind the most.

    Gorgeous! Not only do you get the stained glass effect, but the insulated advantage of having it hung up keeps it warmer inside. It would also give me a happy feeling each time I walked into the room, as the colors are beautiful.

    WOW! You are energetic! lol Is this two quilts? Will you put them on a bypass rod so one will slide over the other if you want to use the door?
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    sewlo, I love them. Talk about looking like stain glass, these do. Are all your strips the same size? I have never like these type of blocks because the distraction in the center because all the strips do match, but yours is different. It must be because you have added the black sashing between each block. I have all kinds of small strip, I am going to use this technique for make quilts for a large picture window.
    Did you quilt them and how did you hange them?

    It also good for the summer for the east, west and south side to keep the sun from warming up the house.

    Now that is a clever idea! Very beautiful strip quilts, and a very practical use.
