    Thank you Eddie, great instructions. This I will be doing for our daughter. She will love it. May take awhile since I have three quilts in different stages already.
    It's going to be hard not to start right away.

    Thanks for the great tutorial, have always loved cathedral windows but thought they had to be hand done. Wonderful detailed photos and instructions.

    Thanks Eddie,

    You make it look so easy, I want to try it but I am a newbie so I think I will keep to a more simple quilt for now. I am looking foward to the next step. I can wait I am bookmarking them.

    Eddie....OMG...You are my HERO!!!! Too funny, I just asked my quilting teacher the other day if she knew how to make CW block because I want to learn how to do it. She said that she would have to find her's and show me. Low and behold...I'm browsing through the forum and decided to look at the tut's and what did I see??? Your AWESOME so easy to understand Tut!!! You are the BOMB!!!!

    Thank you,
    Mish :0)

    It is pretty. You could use applique stitch on machine, then border windows with decorative feather stitch.

    Eddie, I have four CW squares I started about 3 yrs ago for my DGD for a small wall hanging. I didn't finish it because I was going to hand sew the curved pieces down, but now I can do it on the machine & she'll be surprised it's finished. I have jute rope that I think I'll plait for the hanger. She may want to use it on her doorknob to her room.

    Please keep making those tutorials for us.

    I just borrowed a book from my local quilting group. I have studied all night and it made no sense whatsoever. Today I came upon your Tutorial and everything clicked :idea: What a fantastic tute, hats off to you for making this easy and so do able. Guess what my next project is going to be. Thats after Dear Jane and my Japanese Fans, but the Fan quilt is almost there now. Will also give my friend this link because she couldn´t understand the book either.
    Thanks

    Thank you so much Eddie. I made a pillow several years ago and could not remember how I did it. Your instructions are great and will be very easy to follow. I will get started on a small quilt very soon.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I was starting a CW quilt that was hand stitched. Then I came across your tutorial today. Thank goodness I hadn't started yet!!!
    Now I will use your machine method to make mine.
    Bless you Eddie!!

    Eddie, your tutorial was sooooo easy to follow and clear. I just sat down and did a four piece CW to try it out and was totally amazed at how well it worked together. Thank you for taking the time to put that tutorial together for all of us.

    I had some time yesterday to try out this technique as well and after a little glitch, the light bulb moment went on and it worked really well for me too

    Eddie -- I made a sample of this machine stitched CW, but when I got to Step 28 , the folded piece did not curve...it was straight. Do you know what I'm doing wrong?

    It looks like you're trying to sew the "glass" piece onto a single block? When looking at a set of 4 blocks that have been stitched together in a 4-patch pattern, the "glass" should cover the intersection where all 4 blocks meet and be in an on-point orientation, i.e., like a diamond on end. Is that how you're doing it?

    A purse (or Tote) is a great idea for this. I would like to try it also but want to try it in a small project to see if I like doing it (and am patient enough to do it!!!) before I tackle a quilt!

    I was also having trouble understanding that same step--wondering where the loose edges came from. You did a wonderful job on the entire tutorial and with explaining this step better with this extra information and this picture. Thanks. I was thinking it would be fun to make a small project (a tote bag) to try this project as it looks like it is a time consuming project and want to make sure I enjoy doing it before buying fabric for a large quilt. I love it made with the Batiks like you have. It will look wonderful when done.
