    Love that golden glow. It helps keep warm too! Surely a winner there.

    It puts such a warm glow in the room. I think it makes the room look cosy. As good as a fireplace glowing.

    Beautiful!! But, is it lined? I'm thinking the faded fabric thoughts.

    Just beautiful.
    I look at it and it's inspiring as was the story of the lady (on this board) who made the butterfly quilt that was inspired by a stained glass window.
    The colors are perfect.

    i love it. it looks like you have a stained glass window. maybe you should make another one in the way of a stained glass quilt to hang during the summer?

    Wow! Oh Wow! What an outstanding quilt. It's colors are perfect for making the room glow with warmth.

    I too had the same concern as others with regards to the light affecting the fabric over time, even if using this quilt just during the winter months. I would suggest checking and getting some window film, the type that keeps out uv rays. This could be fashioned and attached to a frame(s) that fit inside the window area. This would help preserve the colors and the fabric as it is used over time.

    You might also want to check with a local window manufacturing or installation company. They may have some glass that is specially treated for uv rays.

    My dad made some plexiglass inside storm windows for very large windows. Some were 8+ ft across. These windows had three sections for each inside storm. They were completed removable for taking outside to clean with soap and water using the water hose. The frames had magnetic strips attached on one side with the other attached to the other magnetic strip on the wall. He put up a thin metal frame support so that the inside section could be removed when wanting to have the windows open. Something similar could be used with uv protection products.
