Free Pattern Day: Attic Windows Quilts

Here are free patterns and tutorials for Attic Windows quilts!  The pattern draws the eye into a "shadow box" effect. Attic Windows are a great way to showcase special blocks or large prints. They can be constructed with mitered corners or - the easy way - with half-square triangles at the corners. This post was updated on January 3, 2018. Scroll down the page until you see the quilt you like, then click on the colored letters of the link to the pattern.
