    Thank you SOOO much for the wonderful tutorial! I have always wanted a CW quilt, but it never "clicked" until I saw this!
    Here's to hoping it's fairly newbie proof

    Thank you so very much! I've made a small quilt the old way and was wishing I could make a full size but knew I didn't have the endurance for it. I think it could do this. I love your batiks! Thank you again for showing us how.

    sumcoop, youare not dense because it got me too. When you sew your triangles they are on point so you put your contrast material in the middle of the triangle then the pieces just fold over nicely. Look at the first pic again on page 1.

    I'm sure if you google Cathedral Window , you will get a downloadable instruction there. I know I did a while back.

    At the risk of sounding really stupid is it actually the four triangles that you fold and sew round the "glass". Sorry for my silly question but other than that I think this is a wonderful tut and definately will try it. I have a lot of animal and bird 31/2" squares which I would like to put in place of "glass" do you think they would look OK and what size would my first square need to be to suit these. Many thanks.

    I think it would be lovely to put the birds/animals in the 'windows'. As to size of the original block to form the frame, I am afraid I am no help this morning.

    Thanks Eddie, I was just going to start to look for a tut on this. And someone posted here today. I guess it was meant to be. You did a fabulous job on the tut. Can't wait to try it.

    Generally, you need about 4 times as much fabric as the size you are making. But remember, you don't have to get backing or batting, since this is a quilt as you go kind of project. So, 3' x 3' is about 1,296 square inches, times 4 and using 42" width fabric that would come to about 124" of fabric. So 3.5 yards ought to do it, but I'd get a little more.

    Thanks, Eddie for the math - needing about 4 times as much fabric as size of the finished quilt. It helps to know that. I have some fabric stashed away that I want to use for this (after a current project is done). Hopefully it is enough.

    Thank you Eddie for this tutorial, it is so much clearer here than on paper. Like the idea of machining pieces together instead of hand sewing!

    How do we make the colored center? There is not enough information here to make a row. Please help, I like your quilt.
