Cathedral Windows

One of the first things I ever quilted,
many years ago,
was a Cathedral Window table runner
for Christmas.
I actually made a number of them, all by hand,
and gave them as gifts.

This has been one of my favorite blocks since then,
but for some reason I never made it again....

Until now!!

The other day I watched this video
and knew I had to try it.

I had just purchased a charm pack of  fabrics
from Free Spirit and
knew these would work well.

Instead of using the 5" squares,
I cut them down to 2 1/2" squares and 
pulled some gray scraps from my scrap basket
and cut those to size as well.

Here is what I have so far...

I played around with the squares and layed them out this way,
but quickly changed my mind.
 (I know you can't really see the "fun" fabric,
but I put them in blocks of four prints each.)

They needed to be randomly placed.
I've sewn them into two's and will continue sewing the rows together.

I think I see a pillow in my future!

Happy Quilting!
