    Cathedral Window Variation

    I can't even begin to explain to you how relieved I am..... I started with one layout, but didn't like it so I finished it all the same. Was too late to undo the beginning layout. So I just use that part as the pillow end. King size on a queen bed. I sewed through all layers for more durability instead of the traditional way.
    Pattern: Cathedral Window (Variation)
    Base Squares: 576 by machine
    “Windows”: 2,676 by hand
    Fabric: Unbleached Muslin, 100% Cotton Blue Scroll
    Completion: Oct 23, 2015 (5 yrs)

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    One of the prettiest Cathedral windows I have seen. The blue and ivory is so striking. I also have to comment how much I love your format of presenting by listing pattern, size, etc.

    Totally agree. Beautiful quilt. Thank you for including the information in an easy to read format and without someone asking for it.

    Absolutely love your quilt! Great that you didn’t discard the beginning but found a wonderful use for it.

    It's beautiful and I love the way the pillow area is different but goes with the rest.

    Beautiful!

    I too love the part at the top for the pillows.

    What a beautiful quilt. Clever to make that cover for the pillows.

    What an awesome achievement! The part you started with that covers the pillows now was an inspired solution - looks perfect.

    Thank you all so much for the kind words! Truly appreciated! I forgot to add a few info tidbits. My window fabric is cut to 2.5" squares. Base squares were cut at 9.5" (I can't remember the size of the finished folded square). I have 20/100 uncorrectable vision but refused to let it hinder me. I owe my perseverance to my husband who has been my rock and cheerleader throughout this process. Finished out at 102" square. Took about 50-60 yards of muslin.
