    So pretty! Hand or machine stitching? I am hand stitching mine and have quit on it for some time now. After shoulder gets well I will begin again. I usually work on it Jan-March.

    I also have one started.... it is my "go to" project to take with me. Which means I sew on it some.. cut come.. stick those pieces in the bag, and next time I'm on the road or whatever, I bring it and make a few more blocks.. Perhaps before I die, I'll have a quilt. or not....

    Really good way to use up those charms.
    I have a question about this particular faux pattern, When the instructions tell you that the template should be 8.25x8.25 are they referring to the the center being that size or the entire pic. being that size? Can someone give me an answer to this please. I want to print out the pattern, as well as the template, but I don't seem to be able to get the template to come out to 8.25 for the entire thing. Any help from anyone? Eddie I do have your tute on the cathedral window you did but I haven't started one yet, on my Looooooong to do list as well. Thanks

    It's beautiful! I haven't made one of these yet, but after seeing Eddie's a while back I decided it is one of my favorite patterns.

    I hope you keep us posted on the progress of your quilt. I love the colors. I know its a lot of work but it'll be worth it. The beauty and feel of the quilt makes it all worth it. Have fun. :):):)

    Many years ago I had four quilts on my list of "I have to do this one".
    The first one was the Dresden Plate. Done and gifted to my SIL to have while she recovered from BC.

    Star quilt was the next one. Call it anything you want but it had to be a star, Top is done, sandwiching is next.

    Grandmothers Garden, hexagons by hand. I am working on getting it turned into a square. I only work on this one in the winter.

    The last one is Cathedral Windows. I have saved so many patterns and how toos. any tips from you? Are you doing this by hand or machine?

    I love this.

    Entire pic...the outside square, before rounding corners.

    I only made 4 blocks in 2006...but they made nice little "doilies" for my shop.

    Oh my gosh - it is fantastic. I am in the process - to the best of my figureing I need 2,500 blocks for my super king size. My brain doesn't compute very well so I bought a whole bolt of good muslin, washed it (cut into 2 yd lengths), now am in the process of cutting 8&1/2 squares. My age is getting on up there so it will probably never be finished, but it is my "handwork". I love it.

    Looks beautiful now, and I'm sure the final results will be great. I tried this once "just because" and have a pillow cover size waiting to be completed. Keep up the good work! Looking forward to seeing the whole thing.
