Attic Windows #2

One of my friends lost her husband a couple years ago and was overwhelmed by the floral arrangements she received in the days following. She did have the presence of mind to take photos and make a plan to somehow incorporate them into a quilt.
After seeing my granddaughter's quilt (see previous post), we decided to go with the same attic window design. We went back and forth with a few choices for the attic window frames and for the fabric for the borders and backing.
I fixed the issue I was having with the cat photos and the white borders and printed all the photos she gave me. I had a few left after putting together the front and I used them on the back as part of the backing.

This quilt was custom quilted by Christine Tessier in Okotoks and I love how the quilting echoes the attic windows. The quilt was finished with a hanging sleeve and now my friend has it hanging where she can see it daily. 


PS I apologize for the fuzzy and dull photos. I don't always remember to clean my cell phone camera lens before photos - this quilt is far more vibrant and vivid than it appears here.
