Window Quilt

I saw this fantastic idea a few months back over at That's My Letter's Blog.  I knew I had to try it out and finally got it finished this week. 

I found this great six paned window from North Carolina.  It is over 100 years old and it has some amazing old square headed nails.  My husband carefully stripped the old flaky paint off and sanded it down.  He painted it a light coat of flat white paint and then I distressed the paint with some sandpaper.  (Yes, I had the easy job.) 

Six mini quilts later and here you have my version of a Window Quilt.  I gave it away for a family reunion auction this weekend.  I was tempted to bid on it so I could have it but I let it go, knowing that I could make another just for myself.
