    That is beautiful. I love cathedral windows, but it looks so difficult I have never even looked at a pattern. And don't tell me "it really isn't that hard," because then I'll have to add another quilt to the someday list!

    Seriously, you are doing a fantastic job on this. I can't wait to see the finished product. Your colors are so cheerful. Will you be using unique fabrics in every window or will you have repeats?

    Its going to 44" wide and I'm not sure how long yet. It's actually not hard at all...at least the method I'm using. I am doing it by machine as I don't like to hand sew. I'm also using a fat quarter bundle call "Nest" by Tula Pink. There are 32 different ones so I'm just going to use all of them randomly through out. I am making it for my Mom, she picked out the bundle not knowing the name...she just liked the colors. The funny thing is it is of course bird related but not real obvious but my name is Robin and I call my sewing room The Nest...too funny! I'll post more pictures as it goes.

    Gorgeous! Every time I look at the instructions for these, I just get a headache! Maybe I'll just start with something small, llike a pillow.

    I've been wanting to do this pattern but don't know which book to purchase to follow. Any suggestions on where to get easy instructions?

    You are doing an excellent job. I like the colors very much. It will be beautiful when finished.
    I started a cathedral window many years ago in Christmas fabrics. It go to the pint that I only worked on it during the holiday season, but haven't pick it up for a long time.
    I'm working on it in my avatar picture.

    I've been wanting to tackle Cathedral Windows, but for some reason it scares me.

    These are the best instructions I've found. I also have a book but I wasn't crazy about it.

    That's lovely. I like the look of Cathedral Windows, but I don't think I'd have the patience to make one.

    Wonderful. Are you just using muslin for the main material? and starting out with a 9" template as in the tut? Also do use a regular stitch length to sew the "curves" down. Thanks for enlightening me!

    Im not using muslin. Its a tone on tone swirl. I'm using the 9" templet but I'm cutting out 10" squares. Found that works really nicely. I do use a regular stitch length. It's actually easy and fun to do!
