    I love that pattern - so many variations, and it finishes as you go along.

    It's really cute! I like the colorful pieces and you've done so good on it. How long did this project take?

    Very graphic. I'm guessing it is for a boy with all the critters on it. Looks great. I may have to try one of these "someday".
    My grandma made a cathedral window many years ago. It was amazing how heavy it was considering that it isn't really a "quilt" since it has no batting in it. I think my cousin gets it when grandma dies since it should have gone to her mother. Oh well, maybe I'll get a different one. I should ask to see them and let her know which one I would like to have and maybe she'll put my name on it!

    thanks sondray, i got the pattern from watching it on FONS AND PORTER. i recorded the show on DVR and just kept referring to it. i made notes and kept the pattern from the first one i make and enlarged it for this one.
    i think they called it a peek-a-boo quilt.

    saravincent, i wish i could tell you how many hours i have in this project, but i lost track of the hours. it took about 5 just to cut all the circles. that is about the most time consuming part. all the rest probably took another 20 or so hours total. i have another that i am making and plan to keep closer track of the time.

    It's great nana! I love how you used the stripe, really adds a terrific graphic element to the circles. :thumbup:

    dodie and judyjo, the directions for the mock cathedral window have been given in this forum. as a matter of fact if you do a search on "mock cathedral window" my first one will come up and if you scroll down you will find very good directions from patrice. there isn't really a pattern just directions. it is fun and really easy. good luck.

    Thank you. I found Patrice's directions. I tried a search before but didn't find it. Guess I just didn't scroll down far enough. I've done the real cathedral windows....now I'm going to put this one on my "to do" list of things to do. That "to do" list keeps getting longer and longer.

    Thanks again...all the quilts are beautiful!

    This site has an interesting video for making circle magic quilts, very similar to the mock cathedral windows.
