A Window to the Past

 In the old house in which I grew up, there was a leaded glass window. It was in the kitchen, facing a porch. I loved it except when I had to wash it.

The kitchen was remodeled years ago, and the window went to my cousin Juanita's house in a frame made by my father. When I saw it in her house, I wanted to make a quilt using it as inspiration.

This is the result. It hangs now in the same dining room as the window itself. I call it "A Window to the Past." It is applique, with bias "leading" and hand quilted.
