    Help! I had talked to a woman on here about cathedral windows and of course I don't have the PM. I would love to ask her a question. Or course if anyone else can help me would be great!

    Has anyone used the book "Cathedral Windows" by Lynne Edwards? I am trying to "teach" myself and have gotten myself all confussed. Also I am using another site using a different method from Hyena In Petticoats. I'm stuck on a step that just isnt clear to me using the book.

    I think it would be easier PMing than just rambling on and on...lol. Thank you in advance for any help!

    :) Robin

    I sell the kits and send this website with purchases. Maybe this link will help.

    OH MY, that is a lot of hand stitching to make a bunch of them!! I dont think my arthritic fingers would hold up...is there any machine stitch you could use for the parts that dont show?

    Hi, Robin, I have that book by Edwards as well and used it to learn how to do cathedral windows, so if you have any questions I'll be glad to help if I can.

    Margie - I did my cathedral window project all by machine, so these do not have to be done by hand. Below is a pic of the pillow I did.

    That is just beautiful! What stitch did you use to machine stitch it?

    I just used a straight stitch when turning back the folds to stitch around the very edge of the folds and hold the window fabric in place.

    I just finished my first trial of the faux cathedral window panel which is done mostly by machine. (I used the You-tube tutorial and fell in love with the method) The colors are much softer in real life. This one, I sewed the floral pieces in by hand. Then I did a second block and sewed everything by machine. Easy-breezy. No pic of that one yet.

    Here is the Cathedral Window quilt I did. It was all done by machine also and actually not as difficult as I thought it was going to be. I just love these quilts!
