    thanks, Eddie, I have started this quilt several times and always laid it aside, because of the time it had taken. This time I believe I can do it. Thanks for taking the time to show all of us an easier way, and confidence that we can do it!! mary, p.s I have admired all the beautiful quilts you have posted.

    Thanks loved it! Made one by hand 20 yrs ago now I can do one with the machine. Your instructions are very very good.

    I'll add my thanks to the many already out there. I have been interested in watching your work while I've been a member. You really do have a talent and a knack for quilting. Thanks for the gorgeous pictures to accompany the tutorial. I, like many others, would totally buy this book if you published it. Maybe you could take advance orders and then print it at lulu.com if you want to self-publish? Great job!

    I have always wondered how to do this with a machine and not have to hand sew it. I have a friend who showed me hers. She is hand stitching it....slow going.

    Thank you very very much for your time and effort. I have bookmarked this.

    I want to start one and work on it a bit at a time.

    Thank you Eddie for being kind enough to take the time and trouble to help us less talented ( speaking for myself) people. You make it seem so simple , I just might get up the courage to try it one day. Even if I don't it is a joy to watch your tutorial.

    Thanx for doing this for us!! I'm not a 'by hand' person....too slow! This will go so much faster. I definitely would like to try it soon.

    Eddie! This tut is the easiest, most understandable, clearest pictured I've yet to see. My little grandaughter could catch right on to this one. (and she is very interested in quilting).

    I too have been wondering how to do CW's. I have a book that shows how to do these also and believe me it was hard to understand. I love the way you explained it. Thank you so much! I surely will be doing this one for my next project no doubt. It is residing in my favorites just calling out my name.

    Good Job!!!!!

    Eddie, thanks for the tutorial. It is very concise and to the point. I think almost anyone would be able to make a CW with your instructions.

    I have worked on one by hand..I say worked on one because it is still about the size you see in my Avatar and that picture was taken several years ago.

    I started my CW with a 9 in square...I am wondering...if I was to do a bed size, how big a square could I use and still have it look intricate?

    I clipped an article out of a magazine about 20 years ago and always planned to make it but, it seemed like it would take forever doing it by hand. Since you showed us how to do it by machine I know I can do this now, I have 3 quilts planned and then I'm going to make a CW. Your instructions are very clear and easy to follow. Thank You Very Much for doing it. Phyllis

    I've wondered that same thing. I think you could go a little larger, maybe 10" or so, but I don't think I would go much bigger than that. I would be worried about that window fabric being larger and not being quilted in the middle might look kind of loose if you get it too big.

    Here's one more pic that I wanted to post to this tutorial. It shows how it looks when the two rows of blocks are joined together. As you can see, when you join two rows it creates another set of windows over the joint between the two rows of blocks.

    Great lessons, Eddie! Did you have any batting in the block? Or will it be heavy enough without it? The CW is on my "To-Do" list too. Thanks for sharing.

    thank you so much for this tutorial. I am sure I will try it one day just because of you.
    Did you ever think of putting on a piece of batting before turning the fabric inside out? Do you know what I mean? Just to make a warmer softer blanket?

    This will be the pattern for a new mantel scarf - a small item but a good learning project.

    Don't quite know where the alternate color comes in to play - will work on it.

    Eddie, Great lesson, like someone else said it is clear enough that even a beginner should be able to do. I had seen pictures and wondered how it was done, now I know. I will sure try it as soon as I get finished with some others.
    Thank you so much and also the pictures were great.
