August Stashbee - Cathedral Windows

Ever since I started quilting 3 years ago, I always wanted to try making a cathedral window block. This was my lucky month since that was what we were asked to make. I was so excited and pleased with how deceptively simple they are to make, that I made 2.



Plus, check out this great tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Company on a different way to make them. If you go to the end (around 11:45) you'll see a gorgeous quilt made with 2.5" squares. I think this is the perfect way to use up scraps making it a bit bigger with 3 or 3.5" squares. And the bonus - it's a quilt as you go project!

  2. very nice Cathedral windows, I watched the utube last week and was impressed, it just uses up so much fabric, must have a go though, did a small mat years ago in the 90`s as part of an embroidery course that touched on a bit of quilting but none since.

  3. Quilt as you go? Do they put wadding in the foldy bits? I have made cathedral windows, but only for tea cosies and pincushions, so I find this fascinating.

  5. I've always admired them but never made one and I have a bunch of 2.5" squares I got in a guild swap looking for a project - thanks for the link!
