    Your stained glass window is phenomenal! Could you give us an idea of what the window size is? I think my window is similar. What are the dimensions of your center square? I am picturing a window quilt in Minnesota.

    The window is a bay window with a width of approximately 108" The height only being around 55". The center diamond is 7 3/4 inch across the straight of grain, set on point. Hope this helps.

    Thank you so much! My window is the same height, but quite a bit longer. I'll have to do the calculations, but you really helped! I'll have nine or ten panels. Thanks. If it is not too much trouble, how wide are your strips? Your proportions are wonderful. I imagine all this is in the book. A trip to the LQS is coming!

    You are very welcome. The actual braided strip is 10 3/4" (the width of the center diamond across point to point with the separating strips all equaling 3" wide. You will need to calculate the width of your window plus one extra strip because when hanging the vertical pull makes the width shrink just a little. Of course it would depend on how you plan to hang it. Mine has buckram across the top with matching loops that continue from the separating strips to go around the rod. I hope this is clearer than mud. Good luck. and.....no the book doesn't tell you how wide all the designs are, it only gives dimenisons of the various quilts that are in the book.

    Thank you. What makes it look like stained glass is the 1/4" seam allowances that can be seen through the daylight.

    Did you actually quilt this .... does it have a batting? I think there are a lot of us that LOVE this idea.

    Your information is extremely helpful! I have already picked out
    Christmas fabrics to practice with. They will be made into a lap quilt for my niece's wedding. I'll see how difficult this is before I buy my window fabric. I've started calculating the amount I need. You have me so excited to start! Your quilt is the most beautiful window treatment I have ever seen. It must feel like you are in a castle or cathedral every day.
