Q84 – Colored Windows - Quilt

Ta-da! And good afternoon.

The road to healing is through color and quilting. Don’t know if anyone said that, but it certainly sounds so, so good. Andy’s recovery is amazing… and it just presents itself in all its glory in our newly finished, quilt – Colored Windows.

Our 84th quilt… and still counting. Colored Windows is our adaptation of Amy Walsh’s pattern, Rear Window. It is kismet that Jimmy Stewart as L. B. “Jeff” Jeffries, in Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window, is recuperating and wheelchair bound. Andy is currently mending from his bypass surgery, and as Jeff Jeffries kept his camera in hand, so did Andy work with his needle and thread.

Colored Windows' dimensions are – Width: 64” (163 cms); Length 79 ½” (202 cms). We have used three primary- and three secondary-colored batik fabrics, as well as a patterned black one to create the shades of all the windows. Three dappled beige-to-brown fabrics were incorporated to generate the window frames, the brick wall, the backing, and the binding.

Here are some images of close-ups and the backing of Colored Windows.
