    Cool Mystery Cathedral

    Last year at a quilt meeting, I received a "mystery" box which turned out to be full of the beginnings of a Cathedral Window quilt. Newspaper clippings in the box dated it from the 70s. It was intended to be hand sewn. However, I am a firm believer in letting machines do the work whenever possible, so I finished it on the machine. I think it turned out okay. It's heavy, and a little stiff. The backing fabric from the box was a coarse muslin, and it wasn't cut square, which made it a challenge at times. Still, I persisted and finished the darn thing. Here is the result.

    Cathedral Windows is one of my absolute favorites. You did beautiful work bringing this to its full life. I just love all of the different fabric colors.

    Nicely done. Those look so all time consuming - but so beautiful when they are finished.
    The one who dies with the most fabric wins.

    a neighbor gave my the muslin and some of the colored pieces for cathedral window quilt. I would like to finish it but hand sewing all those blocks take so much time. How did you do it by machine? i have never heard of sewing the blocks by machine, Please let me know how as I would love to finish it, thanks
