    For all those who have asked, the following are the directions for the Cathedral Window Ornament. The directions were adapted from the directions for the quilt. I hope you all can follow them.

    If you make any, please post a picture. I would love to see what someone else uses for fabric, etc. Everyone looks different.

    Thanks for posting the instructions! I am going to attempt to make a "special" ornament for my husband and each of my kids using this pattern. Barb C

    JudyJo,
    I got one of the ornaments made!!! Labor intensive, but I really enjoyed making it. At first, I didn't understand the instructions because of my preconceived notion of how it should be, but as soon as I let go of that and started paying attention to what you said, a lightbulb clicked on :idea: and I got it. I don't have a camera to take a picture. I made it in green and white holly prints, then realized the green wouldn't show up in a tree, so I will hang it in my window. The next one will be bright colored. Thanks a million.

    Hi Norah...I too had trouble with it at first because of preconceived ideas as to how it should go. I've been thinking about your question about using synthetic fabrics and the possibility of raveling. Instead of cutting the squares 71/2" and turning under the raw edges 1/4"....what if you cut the squares 8" and turn under the raw edges 1/2" before overcasting the edges together. Once you have those turned under edges sewn together there are no raw edges left. It would be worth a try especially if you have some scraps of the synthetic fabric left from another project.

    Good idea about the larger seam. There are so many pretty, rich looking synthetics that would make gorgeous ornaments. The fabric could move them from homey and nostalgic to classy or elegant. I have some beautiful silks and brocades and such that could work, but I will have to save that for next year. The fabric is buried in my sewing room somewhere. We'll see how it works. Thank you.

    GeeGee, the picture of your DGS just warms my heart. I haven't been around a baby in way too long. Makes me want to reach in and hold him.

    Hi Judyjo, I ran a copy of the pattern. Thanks so much for listing it. This is one of my favorite patterns. I made it once in a quilt class & said I would love to make a full size quilt. Haven't done that yet, but would love to make the ornaments. I made some ornaments this year so this will be a great addition to everyones next year. Thanks again, Pat

    You need to click on "Download" and then click on "Open". The directions should come up. I just tried it to make sure it was still working. Let me know.

    Go to the main forum. Find the post for Cathedral Window Ornament. Click on the button to the right that says download. When the next box comes up click on "Open". The directions will come right up.

    JudyJo,
    Thanks for the directions for the cathedral window ornaments. I gave every single ornament I had this year (from all the years past) to each of my children. We made a party of it and they all took their favorites. Being the "empty nester" that they like to remind me I am, I now have only this year to make new things for next years tree and my house. I literally gave it all away. So, my main project this year besides countless quilts and tablerunners and such, already planned, is to make at least 100 new ornaments for me. Sooooooooooooooo, if any of you have any awesome, pretty, different, unusual, or just plain fun ornament patterns or ideas, I would be so grateful. It will be fun to get different ideas from everywhere and it will add more meaning to each one I make....send pictures too if you can, right now I will have a very naked tree without you all. Thanks, Janie

    Just me again, I just thought that if there is a history, or good story attached to the ones you send, please include it. It is so wonderful to know that in the heart of all quilters there is such sense of community and generosity and even though I have only been here a few days with all of you, you have made me all feel so much a part already. By the way, I was able to download with no problem on the cathedral window pattern and will make one tomorrow as soon as I get up...you all are good medicine , thank you so much. Janie
