Rose Window Stained Glass Quilt
Topic: Quilting

I tried a new (to me) technique in quiltmaking to create a stained glass quilt. Each of the pieces is cut out, laid on a backing block and tacked in place with Steam-a-Seam2. Then the leading lines were added with single-fold bias tape and 1/2 inch wide Steam-a-Seam2. I did a mini-zigzag along both edges of the leading and then pieced all these blocks together. After I sandwiched the batting and backing with it I laid in the leading across all the seams joining the blocks and zigzaged along those for the quilting. This was for the patterned part. Then I added all the wide borders along with their batting and backing. The quilting for the wide borders is large roses at each corner and the centers of the sides. These are connected by leaves and vines. The whole quilt is bound in black.

Here is the queen-sized quilt:
