My Stained Glass Window turned out better than I could’ve expected. Framing the batiks in black was something I have always wanted to do, so doing the charm squares as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge was the perfect answer.
Despite some lingering health problems I was able to finish the project this afternoon. It was just in time to get it photographed with the help of my friends. The indoor view looked nicely finished with the added 2 1/2 inch black border.
I’ve decided not to quilt it, but to keep it for myself and hang it where I can enjoy the colors. Quilting it would destroy the effect of the stained glass.
The weather cooperated perfectly. Despite on and off rain the sun came out in late afternoon just in time for the final photo.
if you look closely you can see the quarter-inch seams shining through, which gives the squares a three-dimensional effect.
I am really thrilled that this project turned out better than I expected. I now have my own stained glass window like those in beautiful cathedrals.
