    So I took a class to learn to do a cathedral window on the machine. Had a great time..all materials were furnished and I did learn something. Here is a picture of my $20.00 potholder. Don't think I will live long enough to make a big quilt.

    It's very pretty. Maybe you could use this as the center and put other blocks or strips around it to make a wall hanging if you don't feel you will ever accomplish a large quilt or even turn it into a nice pillow.

    LOL that's how I felt after taking a class for English Paper Piecing. Spent 8 hours sewing enough hexagons & 1" squares together to make an 8" block. Multiply that times how many blocks for a quilt? I'll stick to machine piecing thank you very much. :)

    I love it! I agree with you about never making a whole quilt. I did a pillow and it was a fun way to do the cathedral windows without going overboard. lol

    one of my first quilts was a catherdal window. It quickly got downsized to a crib quilt. I love the look of them but it would take me a lifetime to make a big one.

    LOL, very pretty! It reminds me of my one try at hand piecing hexagons...I have a darling pin cushion but I'll never do them again.

    Your pot holder is very pretty, but I think I would frame that $20.00 pretty and hang it on the wall :)

    Eddie has a most wonderful tutorial on here for doing the Cathedral Windows, and you might want to add to your potholder.
    Good job! :thumbup:
