hand quilted wall hanging

I love old windows and here are some things I have done with mine. I also love to quilt so I hand quilted some blocks and then framed them in an old window frame. The one with three panes hangs above the bed in our spare bedroom with a matching quilt on the bed. The one with four panes has a hand quilted scene from each season. The other one, I took dried flowers and weeds and glued them to a piece of painted cardboard and stuck it to the back of a window frame. It turned out really nice and gets lots of compliments.

Your creative use of displaying your quilting talents in these vintage windows is an outstanding idea. I have two sil's that are into quilting and I will have to pass this idea onto them. I have a project idea posted where I used windows as well, but with a beachy theme decor.
