Sew the other background squares to the center square
Sew the center (now folded) block to both sides. I pinned right at the center seam, and both sides at the ends of the folded center block
Make sure all the raw edges are aligned when you sew
Press the block well. Make sure the seams on the back are flat
With a little dab of my Elmer's school glue stick in the center, I then place my 'window' fabric
Press the 'window', You can also begin to turn back or fold the edges on the 'window'. This helps when you are ready to sew the edges down.
Start stitching the edges down. Take your time!!!
And now you are done! Make as many more as you want, keeping the same colors throughout, or keep the background fabric and change the 'frame' and 'window'. Sew them together and you have a beautiful faux cathedral window. For the real deal, check out the tutorial that Eddie did for Cathedral Windows. It is easy to follow as he does pic by pic as well.
