Default Windows to the World

This quilt is for my sons roommate. Ever since the two of them have been roommates my son has started acting like a normal human instead of an angst ridden teen. :P at 22 that is very important! I used a flame pantograph but rounded all the points and turned it upside down, so it looks like rain dropping down. Also used the variegated black/silver thread so that it looked like light dancing off the drops. was getting really creative there.

Quilt Name: Windows to the World
Pattern: I totally forgot the name, I saw the block and just made up my own cutting/piecing from it
Batting: Hobbs Heirloom 80/20
Quilting: Pantograph "Brush Fire" altered
Thread: Rainbows #810 Zebra

It looks like a three-dimensional stained glass window! Lovely colors. I'm so glad that your son got a great roommate - I think the roommate is lucky too.
