    :thumbup: Great job. That will be beautiful. I started making cathedral windows by hand, had to switch to machine and still only made a big pillow!

    I think it is a very ambitious project for a first quilt. While it is beautiful, usually a baby quilt is a good project so that you don't associate quilting with taking such a long time

    great quilt. Of all the quilts I have made, this was the first and hardest. My 75 yearold uncle taught me. I did it in pieces, all the background, then joining 4 squares at a time, and on and on and on.
    Keep up the good work, It will be your greatest effort.... :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Beautiful colors, and like others have said an ambitious first project. This is also on my bucket list.

    I am putting a Cathaderal quilt for my granddaughter. I have been using random colors but after I bought several patterns, I felt I needed a few more. I went digging in my stash and found some special material that I had use mading clothes for her daddy when he was a baby. So now the quilt has special memories sewed in. I am not as far along as you. I am working in sections so I can carry it with me on all trips in the car so I get lots done on the road. will have pictures at sometime. I do not find it a hard pattern to do, just time consuming but then again hand-quilting is time consuming. It will get done---one stitch at a time.

    Cathedral windows...Wow that a tough one to start with, I'm still too intimidated to give it a try. Keep at and show us the finished product.

    I agree and it is very pretty... love the colors showing through and think, what a lot of work! I don't think I have what it takes to do that.. is it lot's of hand work?
