Autumn Window Box

So many of you have liked the “Window Box” idea in my latest book that buoyed up by your enthusiasm I have designed one for this time of year and especially  to put on the table for Thanksgiving  (which is this Monday in Canada).

Inspired by all the pink hydrangeas that abound in my neighbourhood at this time of year,  all growing a darker deep fuchsia pink by the day, the spiders busily their casting webs and the acorns underfoot on my  daily walk  I came up with this…..




I used cardboard inside and so it can easily be bent to stand alone or you could prop it up against a window as its name implies.


If you would like a free copy of this design please e mail me ( and I will send you the PDF.  You will need a copy of my book “Euphoria Tapestry Quilts” for Window Box construction and/or “Beautiful Botanicals for my appliqué and embroidery techniques but if you are well versed in my appliqué you won’t find this difficult.  The spider is new to my repertoire but is constructed similarly to the butterflies in “Euphoria Tapestry Quilts”.  It measures 36″ x 8.75″

    It is lovely, and would also make a wonderful long bolster pillow. So yes please, I would love a copy. I already have your book.

    Best regards and thanks, Joan Sent from my iPad


  2. Serendipity 🙂 I have just ordered your Euphoria Tapestry Quilts book and this pattern would be perfect to whet my appetite, although I’m not too sure about the spider, they are not a favourite critter of mine 🙂 I will email you.
