    Happiness is a form of travel...not a destination.

    I couldn't get the link from littlebitoheaven to work but was able to find it. It is also a well-done tutorial for doing one.

    Thanks for the link on Edie's tute for the Cathedral Window, it is a great tute and looks much easier than the pattern I used many years ago from a magazine. Also a big thank you to Edie for doing the tute originally.
    Happy Quilting

    Thank you so much for the link to Edie's tutorial. Absolutely great, and so easy to follow. I particularly like the way Edie did the folding and machining for the window and think I might try that one of these days. Many years ago when the girls were small I made a Cathedral Window cot quilt all by hand. I used to have the squares of white cotton (I think it was a poplin) by the ironing board and every time I did some ironing I ironed a few squares. These were then transfered to my basket by my arm chair to sew together in the evenings, and then finally placing the panes in the middle. If I did the machined windows I could work much faster. I still love doing hand work - find it theraputic.

    I have made two cathedral window quilts and made the squares much like Eddie's pattern, but when it gets to #15 in his tutorial I hand stich the opening in the square before I press it.
    I also hand stitch around all the windows. The only time I machine stitch is when I make the original square and when I am attaching new squares.
    It is a beautiful quilt and a handy carry along project.

    There was a tut done by Eddie for cathedral windows very easy to follow but it was in the old format so don't know how to find it.

    Here's one for classic construction:
    http://vrgis.sourceforge.net/imagem_quilt.html

    And another with more and better pictures:
    http://hyena-in-petticoats.blogspot....-tutorial.html

    Both of these can actually be done (classic style) with 90% machine stitching versus 100% hand stitching.

I have wanted to make a QW but most instructions are hand sewing. I have arthritis in my hands so that is out. If it can't be done on the machine, it doesn't get done. I'm anxious to make a QW.
