    Ok - I have finally completed the Cathedral Window pillow. For those of you that were not around when I first posted about it, I had assembled it backwards :oops: when I went to place the colored blocks. Then I struggled as to how to finish it. Here is the completed pillow !!

    I love it! Cathedral windows are a beautiful pattern and you've really made yours pop. (I almost typed p**p!! That would've had an entirely different meaning, wouldn't it?! :oops: )

    That is just absolutely beautiful! I did a CW pillow a while back in 1930s repro fabrics and really enjoyed doing it. Now you've made me want to do a Christmas one, too!

    I really like it---using all the different Xmas prints is such a nice touch

    Your eye keeps wandering around to see what is next...

    This is one pattern I've always wanted to do but it does look hard!!!! :shock:

    My customers use this instructional website and say its easy to go by.
    CW's are really sew simple to make but because they look complicated people are afraid to try them. They are as simple as making yo-yo's!

    You pillow is absolutely beautiful! I love how bright and chearful the colours are against the white/light background fabric. What kind of background fabric did you use?

    I know what you mean by the instructions being difficult to follow - I'm thinking of doing a Cathedral Windows quilt, so I've been looking at patterns & directions, and I'm still not sure exactly how it works. I'm hoping that "all will become clear" when I have the actual pieces in my hands!

    Thanks for posting the website Marsye - I'm going to check it out!
