    Thanks so much for going to the trouble of making a tute for us. I may give this a try soon.

    I'm sorry, I know I'm missing something, but I don't understand why the seam is not at a 45 degree angle? Would you spell this out for me?

    OOPS!

    It IS a 45 degree angle.

    I over-thought this without verifying my angle. I am sorry for the conusion! Thank you for asking for clarification!

    Thank you so much! Very pretty and helpful. I love the way the frame looks realistic I was wondering where you got your wood looking fabric or what the name of it is? It is perfect for the wood look.

    Thank you!

    Nyou should be able to find wood looks in the landscape fabric area at a quilt shop. These are from Blank Textiles. I bought them a couple of years ago.

    Sandygirl, do you do each block like this and then sew them together?

    Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.

    I sew the rows vertically and add a vertical pane (sash) between vertical rows. Good question!

    This is a great tutorial on this process. I'm going to be making a window quilt very soon and I was looking for the best method.

    Thank you! Have fun with my technique. Experiment with pane size etc. Maybe you will be hooked too. Every panel is "attic window" worthy IMHO.

    When cutting up a panel.....just divide/cut it up to your liking. No need to "allow" for pane sizes...the eye corrects the image. Do not over think this.
