    Cathedral window quilts were usually hand stitched. I found some instructions somewhere years ago and tried it by machine -- it works. I don't know where I got the instructions but a person could probably use Google to find the instructions. It takes a LOT of fabric.

    I don't know about that floral fabric being ugly because it sure looks beautiful with that white background. Your cathedral window is gorgeous.

    There is a tute somewhere on QB by Eddie that shows how to machine stitch.....

    The denim one mentioned must be the folded circles over square of fab? Going to try that next.....

    There is a tutorial on QB - don't know how to post the link, but just do a search for Machine Stitched Cathredal Window.

    I have one of those in my UFO pile!! I love them and since I stumbled on that machine piecing tutorial, it's so much easier. Maybe I'll get around to finishing it up one of these days!!

    Really lovely! I'm fascinated by cathedral windows, have done only a sample to see what it's like. I love yours! The center fabric looks like stained glass.

    Looks like a terrific job to me. Love the white you used because the center does pop.

    So pretty! It is on my bucket list. Hope my eventual quilt turns out as nice as yours. Just checked again. Not an ugly piece of fabric in sight!

    I had to look up the tutorial -- it is called "Machine Stitched Cathedral Window" and is in the tutorial section here on QB. Eddie has made an excellent tutorial with lots of pictures! I highly recommend reading his tutorial if you are interested in making one of these.
