    Cathedral Window quilt

    I've been finishing up a bunch of UFO's, and was looking for a blue and white double Irish chain I finisheda couple years ago. Didn't find it but did run across this quilt--it needed to be joined in the middle and about 40 blocks needed to be completed. Finished it the same day I found it. If I remember correctly it took about 9 yards of white to make this quilt. It is all done by machine. The center fabric was really ugly but popped in the white. It measures about 40 x 50.

    Wow! You did a terrific job! I have always wanted to try this kind of quilt. I bet you are really happy to finish this UFO. The fabric looks lovely with the white.

    simply beautiful. I know how much work goes into one. I made one about 25 yrs ago. so pretty
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Beautiful how your quilt turned out. And to think you used “ugly” fabric. I really like it even though it reminds me I wanted to make just a pillow and even bought a book; a UFO that isn’t even begun. So glad you finished yours and shared it.

    I guess this is the right place for ugly fabric then because it looks lovely in your beautiful quilt. Check another UFO done!

    Beautiful quilt. I have wanted to make one for about 35 or 40 years years. I just keep pushing the thought back and making tons of others.

    That is really pretty. I always enjoy Cathedral Windows quilts and have the utmost respect for those that tackle them. They are a lot of work but the results are so worth it.
