The 3D light effect of this block is simple to create with the use of a light strip of fabric and a dark strip of fabric
The visual illusion of looking through a window is simply achieved by the use of a light and a dark fabric and using a 45 degree angle where they meet (similar to a mitred corner); Valerie shows you how you can achieve this with the simple help of the iron to press in the crease – so no need to panic.

This is a lovely example of Attic Windows made by Vicky Munday; she used a pre-printed panel to which she added the two colours and then she has enhanced the windows effect with the simple quilting.
You could do something similar with a cushion panel too. Or, for more ideas, Karin Hellaby’s book, Sew Simple Attic Windows, which is featured in this video.
