Cathedral Window Finish

I cannot tell you how much fun this little quilt was to make!


It measures 16 3/4" square and was made with 2 1/2" squares.


Stitching around the window panes
(I'm not sure what the gray pieces are called, but this works, right??)
was a lot easier and faster than I anticipated.
I was able to stitch from one to the next without having
to stop stitching and cut the thread each time.


My husband suggested that I make placemats with this pattern...
I think I just might have to do that!


You can use any size square to make this pattern 
as long as they are all the same size.

Watch this tutorial and have a ball!
 

The quilt as you go aspect is awesome, too.
Once the gray panes were stitched down,
all it needed was binding!

I see more of these in my future.... maybe a lot more!

Happy Quilting!!

I think the technical term is "came" or maybe "leading" but, regardless, it is beautiful! I just couldn't imagine how it was going to work out when you laid it out.

Pretty & Vibrant!
And really beautiful against your sofa. This has long been a favorite pattern, but I have yet to make one.

I really like your quilt with the grey edges! It's really beautiful, and the tutorial is just amazing! I will add it to my wish list of 'one day' quilts :)

The dark grey against all those beautiful colors reminds me of cathedral windows for sure. It turned out great Ramona! I like the edges of the quilt too - a very neat effect!

Ooh, pretty! I'm glad stitching those edges turned out to be easier than you feared.

Perfect fabrics to use. Place mats would be an excellent idea. My son-in-law inherited a cathedral windows quilt his grandmother made and it weighs about 100 lbs but is beautiful. I've always loved that pattern.
