    I started this quilt on The first Week of July 2008. I got my binding on yesterday July 22,2009 Exactly a year ago. I managed to get top done before I had to put it aside for Christmas. Then first one thing then another to keep me from finishing and I finally got it done.
    I am proud of this quilt because it is my First quilt for myself,FIRST Mitered sash and it is the First time I did FreeMotion stippled quilting. The Baskets and most of the Flowers are Stippled. Once I got into it I was amazed how fast,fun and easy to do freemotion was. This is a LARGE QUILT I spread it out over the queen sized bed it was made for, When I turned it over to the back to take a picture. The sashes are SID That was hard to do on my Domestic Machine,thought I would never get done. There are a lot of mistakes. Alot of STD out of the ditch. The binding is great on top and the back is kinda messy. Nothing I cant fix on day I don't have anything to do NOT!!!!! Anyways it is done now I can take the Blue Sheets off the windows and the next time anyone comes for a visit I will have it almost the way I want this guest room.

    Done Finally after ONE YEAR My attic window quilt.

    BonBon, that looks so amazing! I really like that pattern to begin with, but when I saw yours I just fell in love with how 3D it looks. Gorgeous. I had been thinking about doing attic windows around my b&w blocks, and I do believe you convinced me to.

    My first grand son is now almost 23, when he was about five years old we were walking into my mothers home and she had a beautiful Camilla bush all in bloom. He said, "Grandma, isn't that Beeeeeeeuuuuuuutttttttffffuuul!
    So that's how I feel about your lovely quilt, great job and so attractive too!
    Great colors and great depth.... Love it!

    Gorgeous! It looks like you could just reach into it! That pattern definitely goes on my list of future projects. At the rate I'm going, I'll probably get to this sometime around 2015.
