Cathedral Window Quilt

As there really isn't much to photograph, I don't have much for you to look at, but I am making progress on my Cathedral Window Quilt. I have always loved this look and I has already reminded me of the past as being a really old design. Check out the tutorial I am using here. But let me warn you that it takes much more time than it looks like it takes. This quilt is beautiful, but the origami like ironing required takes WAY too much time! I finally have 30 squares ironed with 6 more to go. And for all the effort, the quilt will be 1/4 of the size of the original fabric. I am using a white queen size sheet that I got at the thrift store, so the quilt will be 1/4 of that. Barely big enough for a lap quilt. Oh well, it will look great when I am finished and I will have tried (and finished) something new. I will post pictures as soon as there is something more than a pile of ironed white squares.

  1. Hi Bethany,
    You asked how I plan to finish the edge of my Cathedral Window quilt. Right now I plan to place a square of fabric face down in the half window and stitch along the edge, then fold it over and finish the window as usual. I haven't tried this yet though so I don't know if it's what I'll end up doing. Hopefully this is what you meant. Good luck and I look forward to seeing pictures!
