What's Outside Your Attic Windows???


Attic Windows
57 x 67
For my grandson, Jacob, for Christmas
Hey, it's actually a quilt I started and finished all in the same year! So, darn it...nothing gets crossed off the UFO list.  But I guess the point is to NOT have a UFO list.  


Some of the window fabrics are scraps from other projects and some are remnants I have picked up over the years.  I had the quilt top already made and found a Spiderman fabric remnant that would have been perfect for a window.  But it was not meant to be. 



I quilted it on my plain Jane Janome DSM with straight lines here and there hoping it would not ruin the 3D effect. (There is a 3D effect, right)? 
Yes, those are eyes in the dark peeping in in the bottom row.  My grandson wanted me to make him a quilt that just had eyes on it....kind of  a "here's looking at you, kid" type of quilt.  This is as close as I have gotten to that wish so far. 


I used some alien (or monster?) flannel on the back. 

That's what is on my design clothesline (no design wall here) this fine Monday. For other design wall inspiration visit Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times. 

Fulfilling some goals:

Your color choices really make the windows pop and it is so interesting. It makes me want to take a closer look and really see just what is outside that window!

That is SO cute! A finish is always good even if you don't get to check off a UFO. Congrats.
