Trouble in the Window - Spring Wall Hanging Pattern

May 26, 2018

I agree with the previous reviewer (Donna) about the tree branches. I just used a dark brown subtle print for the tree trunk and branches. I also eliminated some of the really skinny branches as well. I chose to do the hillsides a bit differently as well, in a more patchwork/strip design, and increased the width of the window pane strips slightly. I haven't finished yet, but will be adding the black cat soon. I will add 1/4" seam allowance all around and applique/turn edge as is my preference. All in all a really cute design, but I think the use of tiny patchwork squares for the tree branches is ridiculously difficult, and I am an experiences quilter, so...

Really cute, creative pattern. However, the branches are difficult to work with when cut from the pieced brown fabrics. If I were to make this quilt again, I would use mottled fabric instead. Also, the instructions for attaching the cat were nonexistent, and I ended up having to invent a way to do it.

Annie's Customer Service
Donna - Instructions for the cat are included. Here's what is provided. "The cat is printed in 2 pieces, but not in reverse as it won't be fused. Trace the 2 parts together onto tissue & cut out your cat. Arrange it on the window & machine stitch in place. The eye, the inner ear & nose are fused & applied in the same manner as the birds were earlier (just remember in this case to reverse the inner ear & nose on the pattern). Machine stitch all the cat detail lines with grey thread. The little tuft of hair on the chest is machine stitched in white."
