    Well I took a class on cathedral windows yesterday and it was awsome, not perfect but so much fun, take a while to make one, the gal included the muslin with the class but was a very thin muslin, so I got some and redid my block. This quilt shop is awsome, it has more 30's and civil war prints than I've ever seen in one place, and yesterday when I got there she had gotten in 55 new bolts of each, I got a few, but I could have shopped till I droped!!!!

    Thank you, I think I may have enough 30's prints maybe not to have to use the same one twice?? Not sure as yet. Maybe if I go but the new 50 of them that came into the shop.

    I just had knee surgery and my husband took me away to the mts. to rest....while I was there I worked on a cathedral windows quilt for my new grandbaby. I had taken a class but didn't really like to hand sew...with a bum knee couldn't do much else.

    Love your blocks and your fabric! I just heard somone refer to a Cathedral Window Quilt as a "One Year Quilt" because it would take a person that long to put one together. Do you think this is accurate??? Can't wait to see how yours progresses.

    I've never heard of the quilt referred as a one year quilt, I thought it was quite funny. I got 64 squares sewn together, but haven't put the windows in yet. I'm going to put letters in them to spell out family names, so have to wait to hear what the childs name will be, boy or girl??

    forgot to add, that this will only be a small quilt for the crib or a wall hanging. Each square is just under 4 inches.

    Eddie did a tutorial just a while ago on the Cathedral Window pattern - didn't seem to look like it would take a year to do - it's on my list! Please say it won't take me a year!

    Not sure how long it will take, guess it depends on how much it's worked on, this is all I got done in two day & nights, very slow going and yes the blocks are small. I'm enjoying doing this but have to put it back on hold as I have many thing's on the to-do list first. Colors are much brighter that they show in picture.
