Kitchen Window quilt

This quilt top has been on the UFO pile for maybe a year? In my quest to finish up, this one is finally quilted! The pattern is from The Practical Guide to Patchwork and most of the fabrics are from Patty Young's Sanctuary line.

I procrastinated on this one because I was struggling with a quilting design. The dark brown frames posed a problem with thread color - a difficult decision for me when I have such contrast in color. I ended up with a soft orange thread and did a simple cross-hatch on the blocks. I went back with green thread and used loops in the sashing.

The backing is one of my absolute favorite prints from Sanctuary.

This is really a great pattern to show off a gorgeous fabric line! And one of the easiest in the book!

And finally, I want to wish all of you a very Merry and Blessed Christmas. May your holiday be filled with family, friends, good health, yummy food, and some fun presents (maybe some fabric!).
Peace . . . Cindy


  1. Lovely, Cindy. The quilting is well thought out and compliments the overall design of the pattern. Another winner, my friend!

  2. Great quilt!! Love the colors in your kitchen windows, bright and cheery!

    Have a super great sewing and stitching day!

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

  3. I´m quite sorry to say, that I didn´t like the pattern in the book (luckily also available in Germany now). But NOW ... I Love it! You used so wonderful bright and warm colours!

    Wishing you a happy new year,
