Summer and its Sizzle has Set In. Triple Digits Kind of Sizzle. Every Day.
This Tiny, West-Facing Old Window in the Butler’s Pantry Takes the Brunt of the Heat-of-the-Day Afternoon Sun.
The Heat Slithers from the Pantry into the Kitchen and All Bets are Off for Any Kind of Cooking.
Until I Discovered Some Leftover Fabric from a Quilt…All Cotton, Quilt Top, Batting, and Bottom and was Inspired!
If Quilts Can Keep Heat IN for Toasty Warmth…Then Quilts Can Keep Heat Out Too!
And the Window Quilt Was Born!
This is a 15-Minute Sewing Project!
First Measure and Piece the Quilt Pieces Together to Fit the Window.
Sew a Simple Rectangle Shape to Fit the Inside of the Window – window frame to window frame to cover the glass.
On the Top of the rectangle, Sew a Channel for inserting the Tension Rod.
Thread the Tension Rod through the Window Quilt Channel. Set the Rod in Place.

Looks like Stained Glass When the Sun Shines Through.
It Does the Job Keeping the Heat OUT! And It’s CUTE too!
Happy Summer! Stay Cool!
