Stained Glass Quilt

Remember I gave you a glance of this:


Here is the rest of it:


It is finally up on the Pellon site and my whole tutorial is there.   It is an original design and let me tell you, I had a real tricky time designing this template.   I must have had over 15 different designs on my sketch pad, before I found one that worked and looked good.



I used all my hand dyed fabrics for it, and love how the colours have different shades in them, just like light peaking in behind.   If you want to make one, click here for the tutorial.  It is not a difficult procedure and it is fun picking out the fabrics that will go in each little section.  One could get really carried away and make several, just to see how different they all look.

Hey Jackie - great design! Was it difficult to get the black outline on it? I downloaded your tutorial - it just looks a little tricky (then again, all quilting looks tricky to me!). I love your fabrics. Just beautiful!

I love it. I have done some stained glass quilting too. Looks so nice. I just joined as a follower of your blog.

I used to live on Manitoulin Is and worked at the Bank of Montreal in Gore Bay.
