    PinkEwe, I constructed the windows part of the quilt in "chuncks" then attach them together. I have a sewing machine cabinet with a "drop leaf" behind the machine that holds the weight. I also rig up a "shelf" on my left to hold it too. If I had an ironing board that the height was adjustable, I'd use that. Necessity is the mother of invention!

    This is a wonderful tutorial and thanks for taking the time to show it. Coupled with the Elmer's Glue pinning process, this is super easy and a lot of fun. DH oldest son eloped yesterday and he asked me to put aside all UFO and make a quilt for the pair. This will go together in a snap and be so lovely! PS...9 squares down on a row and hundreds to go!

    Was just roaming around the site and saw this since lowjane had brought it to the forefront by commenting today. I read the whole thread, and have to say this is one of the best tutorials ever, as the pics are very clearly illustrating the process.
    I do wonder about the appearance of the back- I'm assuming there is a bar tack at the center of each block where the points are tacked down?

    Did you sew down the middle of this row from beginning to end OR did you just tack each center flap with just a few stitches, break thread and keep tacking center flaps down? These are Very Great Pics for each step so far, but I'm not understanding how you sewed down the center flaps "points in the middle" of the block as you called them. Thank you for your Help with this instruction b/c I'm really eager to make one of these with the batiks just as you have - IT'S BEAUTIFUL....

    Wow! That apron sounds lovely!

    If you still have it you should post a picture. I would love to see it. I just started making my first thanks to this tutorial.

    thanks Eddie. I have a son named Eddie from D.C. He was born in 1963 and is a painter and works in an art shop. I love the tutorials and am wanting to make the cathedral block. It would sure be pretty to be able to make at least one 16 high by 48 around for the doll skirts I put on dolls I do. (15 once top is gathered and added to bodice) I make and give away dolls to VERY sick kids...most with cancer, and 137 so far) I make boy dolls also. Hubby and I provide postage if ACS doesn't disburse out of our area to kids with cancer, or if there are other conditions. Please send a PM my way with your email, if you wish to see a picture of the most recent dolls to go out. They are 24 and 28 inches high.
    Thanks for taking time to do this tutorial for us out here. That was great of you.

    This tute looks so easy. I am going to print the PDF from pg 39, and make a small sample. I started one by hand so I might just add to that.
