January Windows

Last year Wild Daffodil organised a photo challenge with a different theme each month. I rather enjoyed putting together a selection of images, however slight the link may have been to the theme! This year the photo challenge is still running but with a difference, the theme all year is windows. At first I wasn’t sure, I love looking at architecture but I haven’t got that many photos. Then I started thinking around the subject a bit more…

This is my stained glass window quilt, I made it about 15 years ago before I had any quilting equipment or experience, those strips of black bias cover a multitude of sins! The design is based on a stained glass window we had made for our home.

I was trying to avoid Christmas photos, but I couldn’t resist this one, it’s the central hall in Castle Howard, I love the different arches and the circle of windows in the cupula.

Paper pieced windows in my Down the Rabbit Hole quilt.

Last summer I visited Blackwell, and arts & crafts house near Windermere. It has some beautiful stained glass windows.

I’m not particularly keen on flying, but once I get over the fact that there’s 30,000 feet of nothing beneath us, I do enjoy looking out of the window at the scenery below. This was taken flying across Australia last March.

So that’s my first collection of windows, do follow the link to Wild Daffodil to see what everyone else is sharing.

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    I love stained glass windows and I love your stained glass window quilt.
    David and I went to a stained glass making class and each of us created a small window piece. Love them but don’t use them. We both particularly like Rennie McIntosh and we have a bit of that around our house, though our house (1936) is a little younger than those designs. We also like Celtic art in general and that’s going to be a theme for me this year.

  4. I’m blown away by your absolutely wonderful window collection!!!! Your quilts are such a delight and now I want to visit Blackwell, which I didn’t know about before. Whenever I go on an aeroplane, I spend a good deal of time looking out of the windows – just love that photo.
    Thank you SO much for these, they have really got our challenge off to a great start!
