Here we are, back again for the finish of this wonderful Attic Windows August Little Quilt! The downloadable pattern is now available and you can access it here! As I mentioned last time, I used the collection Garden Square for most of my Little, however, I did throw in a couple of Quilter’s Candy Basics such as Lotta Dots-Black, Lotta Dots-White on White, and Solid-Black. I LOVE the flowers in my windows. Not all the windows have flowers because, well, that just wouldn’t look right (to me!), so I did add one more Lotta Dots-Steel Blue for the remaining windows (see below). Hummm… it would seem that I love Lotta Dots… uh, I do! LOL!!!
So lets move forward… For this tutorial, the final windows were made “clear” so the flower windows would stand out more, and they do!! Mwah, ah, ah… They are oh, so cute.
Now that all the window blocks are made they are laid out in a configuration that I love. Actually, when I was finished I carefully stacked them to make sure the order remained intact only to find out later what I thought was random was actually quite symmetrical! Ha! The jokes on me!
The sashing strips are sewn to three of the four blocks in each row and the rows are stitched together.
Do you see how the flower blocks benefit from a few clear blocks? Yeah, I think that was a good choice.
The horizontal sashing strips are created with their partner cornerstone squares. SO cute! It’s coming together!
Voila! All done! The rows and sashing strips are all sewn together and here it is, quilted and bound. I quilted the Little in the ditch adding one diagonal stitch line through the cornerstone squares to further accent the 45° line created in the lower left corner of the Attic Window block. Isn’t she a beauty! I love it!!!
