    nine inch squars. does that make your windows bigger too.you didn't say what size your windows are. I think they are somewhere around 2 inches. how much muslin do you need?

    Thanks for the tutorial. I have a bolt of white muslin I bought in hopes of making one with only blues for thte center square. I was going to research different methods to decide which is best for me. I will definitely bookmark this one!

    Any other ideas out there?

    Yes a 9 inch square makes your window bigger. Have not made a 9 inch one so don't know window size. for my 7 in. squares I cut a 2 inch window but trim it to about 1 3/4 when I sew it in. I do not measure the triming just eyeball it and lay it in place.

    I have the two twin-bed sized Cathedral Window spreads my mother made completely by had during two winters they spent in So. Texas, I simply love them but haven't a bed in the house they fit on unless I use them somewhat as bed runners. I know the work you've put into your lovely quilt and know you will cherish it. You should be very proud of it as I'm sure there were several times when you thought there was no end in sight.

    Absolutely gorgeous... love this... My girlfriend has one that her mother did. Her mom tried to explain to me how to do it but I couldnt understand what she meant... the pics are great and make it seem so simple... TFS!

    I know it can be time consuming, but at least when you have it all together it is finished, no batting or quilting. It is beautiful. It is a good way to use up a lot of your scraps for the windows. Your tut is very clear. Thank you very much.

    Morag... Will you tell us how you learned to do it?

    wonderful tuturial ! did mine in 4 inch squares.. had over 90 pieces of fabric, including windows and only made it to 11 x 15.. UUGGH.. so glad you use bigger size initial squares.

    love this pattern. had to go to library for the hand style vs. machine.

    thanks so much ! love it.. turn out the lights and look through your windows.. beautiful when back lit!
