Has anyone made a cathedral windows quilt using the machine-stitched method by Shelley Swanland? I first saw this method demonstrated several years ago on Simply Quilts and purchased her book. I'm very interested in making a cathedral window quilt but don't know if I have the patience to do it by hand, but I'm also wondering if the results of this machine-stitched method are as pleasing to the eye.

I have tried the faux method and love it. Plan to make my niece a quilt using it:

I've made one cathedral windows pillow and I did it all by machine. I've never heard of Shelley Swanland though-I used a tutorial I found online. Here's mine:
