Cathedral Window Cube Tutorial

Here's what we'll be making today:


Materials:

  • 6 squares of fabric for the Cathedral Window blocks, which will form the sides of the cube (I started out with 7.5" squares; folded to about 3.25")
  • 12 squares of fabric to set in the "windows" (Mine ended up being 2" squares)
  • Stuffing (I used scraps of quilt batting)
  • Needle and thread
  • Straight pins
  • Scissors
  • Rotary cutting supplies, or a pen and a ruler

Cathedral Window Cube


This project served two purposes. One, I'd seen similar cubes in a Cathedral Window Flickr group and I really wanted to figure out how to make one. Two, I'd also really wanted to do a red and white Cathedral Window project, and I wanted to create something useful. The cube is about 3.5" high, and will serve as a slightly large pin cushion.

Try making your own with this tutorial.

North Carolina Heart


I love this style of bead. I found this one at a little bead shop in North Carolina. During the summer in North Carolina, I wore pretty much the same thing any time I was not at work: a brown skirt, a solid colored tank top, my sequined flip flops, and this necklace.

Heart on a Chain


I found this bead at the second bead shop Amanda and I visited. It was a new shop for me too; several people had told me I should check it out. I saw this bead and had to have it, but I wasn't sure how to string it. Amanda was purchasing some chain for a pendant so I decided to give it a try. I had never considered creating my own chain, and I really like the effect. It opens up a lot of new possibilities.

Tiny Forest


Last weekend I cut out these little paper trees. I plan to use them for cards, I just haven't settled on a background yet.

Red Irish Chain


This mini-quilt is the same design as my yellow Irish chain mini-quilt. I loved the design and it was the perfect use for the rest of this fabric. I originally purchased the fabric for my Cathedral Window quilt, and I loved it so much I also used it for block #51 of the Quilt Block Project. I had just enough left for the 25 1.5" squares for this project.

Finished size: 11" square
