Window Boxes - Finished!

Window Boxes is finished!  It reminds me of window panes and it is made of boxes. 

The front:



The back:




The official window and boxes pose:


Good thing we moved recently and still have all the boxes around for the photo shoot.


 A close up of the back.  It is a polka-dot fabric.  And it is the first FMQ quilt that I've done.  And the first one on my quilting frame.  There are many places where my lines aren't as straight as they should be, but overall I'm very happy with it.  And it went so much more quickly!  And I didn't have to wrangle the quilt through a small necked sewing machine!


It finished up at 34.5" square.  The pattern is for sale here (baby and throw sizes).  This quilt is also for sale...for now you can contact me directly if interested.

Linking up with TNT Thursday, Whoop-whoop Friday, LAFF, sew & tell, Fabric Tuesday, and Quilting by the River
