    This is a great tutorial and has me inspired to possibly do one some day! I like the idea of fussy cuts in the window :thumbup:

    Look at this goofy picture....I PAID for a class a few years ago at a LQS and the teacher had this tutorial on the board for a visual aid as she walked us through the steps. I took pics so I wouldn't forget it later on when I wanted to go back on work on it. I did NOT like this because I thought I lost way to much of the "window" fabric.

    Is there another name for the quilt block in my picture, because I'm pretty sure she called it Cathedral Window. It goes together just like yours except for the placement of the window block...which yours is SO MUCH EASIER!

    It looks like the window fabric is put behind the background flaps instead of on top of. Maybe not though. It looks like they are just backwords

    Yes, they are! Which means you use a larger square and get 4 tiny 'windows' instead of one nice sized one. I'm not sure why she taught it this way.

    I've actually seen Cathedral Window quilts with windows done BOTH ways on the SAME quilt. So you have that larger window in one color, the background windows in other colors and only the "leading" between the windows being the common fabric. It really makes for some nice designs when the colors are carefully chosen.
