Cathedral Windows

I've always loved cathedral windows.  They just look gorgeous...and really complicated.  I thought a quilt would be getting in over my head and decided to try it out on a mini for me.
The prep was a few steps, but it wasn't too difficult.  I used Love Patchwork and Quilting issue 6 for my instructions.  I actually bought this issue specifically for the instructions.

(next to the doll quilt my great-grandmother made)
I have to say, I absolutely love my little mini.  The binding took a moment to think over the how-to, but it turned out alright in the end.  The main work was the prep, filling the windows really went pretty quickly.
(it's in a weird spot, I couldn't reach any higher and I just wanted to see it up there)
I think I could totally do a whole quilt of cathedral windows.  Once I get over just how much fabric it would take, that is.


  1. Little quilt looks great. Sewing room wall is the best!!!

  2. What an adorable cuckoo clock mini quilt! Love it!
