Cathedral Windows 8

The last set! I finished these the night before we left for vacation. Joann's was having a 4th of July sale that started that day, so I ran over right after work to get the sale price on fat quarters, threw them in with the last load of laundry, and had just enough enough time to stitch in the last two new fabrics!

The blue and the green blocks were already ready to be sewn.

I added the blue and green fabrics to this one to finish it.

Now I can start joining them. I just have to determine how "charming" I want it to be. There are already a few duplicates (two of my favorite fabrics and some of the pieced squares), so the fabrics won't all be different. I don't want to duplicate all the fabrics, but I know I'm not patient enough to wait for that many new fabrics!


  1. Your windows are beautiful! You did a good job making the white fabric look so neat and precise. I will like to see the finished project.

    P.S. I don't have a cat, either.

  2. I look forward to seeing the finished projected as I have seen your blocks on flickr. Do you know how you are going to finish the edges? I am in the process of making one of these myself, and I am not sure how I am going to finish off the edges. Thanks for any advise you have.

  3. Thanks for the advise about finishing the quilt. I started to finish a small sampler today. I folded the fabric in half, then tucked the raw edges under, and folded the window edges over that. Finally I sewed along the straight edge. I think it looks decent, but the points are a little bulky. I like your idea.
