your Baroque bathroom. Detail Alert!
Shamroque- Play on the word "shamrock".
Pattern is a repeated square design by

blank. Looks like you're on your own.
Wood- Structure Alert! Proceed with caution.
No, not what you think ladies... This is the
furniture style we're talking about.
Window- Nice example of a repeated design
option. The pattern itself has multiple direction
Charm- The second example shows 3 times the
charm if one wasn't enough for you. A bit busy
multiplied but aesthetically interesting.

day! One of my favorite patterns in this category.
Minor structural issues can easily be fixed.
From Within- Are we just fishing for cliche's?
Embroidery Window- May I suggest to keep this
pattern away from glass. To do otherwise would
certainly be cruel. Excessive

pattern. That would be disingenuous. I will say it
is quite colorful...

pattern by Chantal.
Circus- Aesthetically pleasing but rather
Fern- Proceed with caution.
Repeat- I'll be nice and just say... Yes, it
de Lys- Nice stained glass design using Fleur

a few little ones with itsy-bitsy daisies mixed in.

design accent from other stained glass patterns by
I'm a bit disappointed with such a small title given
to a pattern with a gazillion pieces.
Intricate Annabelle or French Victorian styled
Square- Small design flaws that create
weakness issues. Can be corrected.

A stretch of a name for this pattern. I'm trying my
best to be nonobjective here. Structure and Detail
of Fern- Not to be confused with Heart of Burn
you may encounter trying to do this one. Excessive
Not quite sure about this pattern except that it is
square. May be a type error?

Something that "tears your heart out" is the
English/French translation. What's the translation
to tear your hair out I wonder?
Now who came along and erased all of those important
break lines? Structure Alert!
Spaceship Window- Didn't the Mayan's also do
hallucinating drugs? One of my favorite and really
deserves the "gotta make a stained glass pattern"
for that theme award.
To Be Broken- No argument here.
Victorian- Surely nothing like the old
Hearts Window- Design does appear to have
vines twisting about. That's organic enough for
I'm guessing the title was given to resemble the
wood color? Design Alert! Must be modified
to work for stained glass.
of Glass- Art Nouveau styled pattern by
Left to right or right to left... It really doesn't
matter where you start. It's the same.
Chantal doing what she does best... Designing
patterns your fingers can ache for. Attractive
pattern but heavily detailed.
I guess you might call that tall thing down the
center a pillar. Don't hold me to it though...
I confess... I had to google the title of this
pattern. I'm still confused but not half as to why
this pattern was given the name. May be an action
figure some day. Who knows?
Revival- More than rococo will need reviving
if you decide to actually make this into stained
des Vents- English translation: "Compass
Rose". Possibly it means hodgepodge elsewhere?
in the Hall of Mosses- I really should label
these designs with creative names. I guess I just
Tartan- Shamrock petals on a field of
crisscrossed vertical and horizontal bands of
Needs no further description. Nice and easy
contemporary stained glass pattern.

types of flowers. The hummers must be at the
Pomegranate- 2 panel set suggested for window
Tulip- Pattern has a Victorian garlic
highlight to balance off the tulip.
Window #1- Stained glass pattern copied from
an antique window. Avoid butting up curves to
borders to eliminate a heavy line.
Window #2- Looks close to the original.
Pattern still needs to address the distance needed
between the curved pieces and straight border to
work for lead.
Window #3- Close again but falls short with a
poor line flow near the bottom and heavy vertical
bars in the center.
Window #4- A few thin inner border structural
issues but otherwise OK.
Window #5- A bit more attention is needed to
the center oval and how it is delicately pointed in
the original panel and lopsided lines here and
Window #6- A few chopped curves need to be
fixed. Hey... Where did that line come from in the
Window #7- Top diamond in center is curved in
original and the oval issue is back.
Mystery House- You may have to go to
Winchester's home to find the answer.
Iron- Elaborate "formal" stained glass
pattern. Notice "elaborate" was spelled with a
