Christmas gift is gifted

A week or so ago, I was working on a Christmas gift and just gave you a glimpse of the back.  I did get it finished before I flew to Ontario … it has been gifted, my aunt loves it! and so now, I can show you a picture:


I had 2 different panels which I purchased in Pennsylvania in the spring.  There was the one of the bird houses (top left) and one of the birds (bottom right).  Each bird house or bird was an individual rectangle, and when sewn together, the tree in the background joined together nicely.  The top right & bottom left window panes are an alternating mixture of birdhouses & birds.  I like how: although they are similar, each of the 4 window panes are slightly different.  Of course, the border was quilted in feathers!

This was the first time I have made an attic window.  I debated about doing mitered corners or doing half-square triangles.  A friend said that it would look way better with the mitered corners.  I knew she was right.  I took my time and each one turned out perfectly!

This was on the blog “Confessions of a Fabric Addict”    I couldn’t help but laugh!
‘Twas the night Christmas, I’m glued to the tree,
I’m wondering what Santa brought just for me.
Could it be fat quarters or a pattern or lace?
Or a quilt kit, I said with a smile on my face.
And that’s when I heard him, “Hi, Santa,” I said.
“You know…good little girls should be in their beds!”
“I know I should, Santa, and now I’ve got caught.
But I was just so excited to see what you brought.”
“Well, let’s take a look in this room where you work.”
He shook his head quickly and left with a jerk.
I heard him exclaim, as he put it in gear,
“You’ve got enough crap, I’ll see you next year!”

  1. This is a really nice attic window quilt, usually they have a lot lines going across and it doesn’t look as nice as this. I also love the history behind the panels!
