    I made a handbag with cathedral windows, I used a bright purple and in the "windows" I fussy cut some cat fabric, so each window has a cat peering out.

    I'd load a photo, but I've forgotten how to... again!

    I agree if using white or ecru you need a bold color for the inside. I think a pastel with white or ecru will look washed out.

    That cathedral quilt you showed the link to is beautiful. I would never have thought that black and white could look so good. I have seen the rainbow ones and those are lovely too

    Tell us what you decide won´t you.

    I really think I am going to go with white squares with a sapphire blue center. I think that would "pop" with the crisp white squares. The quilt will be for me, so even if it isn't perfect, who cares?

    I found this on You tube. Its a How to make Faux Cathedral windows and it looks easy, and faster than the original method. Take a look, here is the site and tell me what you all think.

    I think the imperfections are what makes a quilt wonderful! I think what we do is art and an expression of ourselves. We all have flaws, but we are still loved as God's children. It's ok if our quilts are a little flawed too.
