    This was fun to make. I don't know if I would want to make an entire quilt, as it is painstaking to make, but I did enjoy making this.

    Very pretty. I did mine in red and cream. Unfortunately, it a WIP. You've inspired me to find it in the storage unit and finish it. Thanks.

    Very Nice ! I have two on my sofa from my grandmother and mother. Someday, I hope to make a few. My Grandmother made each granddaughter a cathedral window quilt full-sized(5 in all). My mother felt bad that my brothers didn't get one, so she made 2. But by the time, she got the second one done, her new daughter-in-law had returned all previous quilts and afghans, expressing her opinion that "they" didn't fit in her home. So my mother kept that cathedral window quilt too.

    You said exactly how I felt after I finished a pillow with the Cathedral Windows pattern. I'm sure it is a lot quicker by machine but mine was done 30 years ago by hand. Never again!

    Great idea! I've always loved that pattern too but I'm not willing to invest that much time into making a quilt.

    I can't imagine returning a quilt. Well...at least she didn't just drop it off at goodwill or whatever.

    It wasn't from HER family.

    This Christmas she sent back a gift certificate that I had sent to her 7-year-old daughter as a gift. She made my brother sign the NO THANK YOU card next to her signature.

    We figure it wasn't large enough to keep. Saves me the trouble of remembering neice's birthday and Christmas in the coming years. I should have listened to my husband and stopped being nice.

    Pretty Pillow. I really like the colors - I did mine in Christmas colors. I loved doing it - very relaxing.

    Your pillow is really neat - I love the colors you chose. I am going to take a page from your book and maybe try a pillow before a quilt. Thanks for sharing!

    It is beautiful. I would love a quilt like it but am really hesitant to start. Think I'll do some of those others first! :)
