    Cathedral Window Quilt Tutorial

    Hi Jenny, I love your Cathedral window quilt!. Looks fun....
    Just picking your brains.... would I be able to do it as quilt as you go... sandwich the wadding, turn it around, quilting the squares before sewing the circles together, then start sewing the circles together? Would it look too chuncky?
    Let me know what you think.
    Luv, Magx

      i loved this. will have to try it. i don't remember seeing her use batting but I guess you would have to. It would not look to chunky.

        Which tutorial are you referring to? I don't remember seeing one on a cathedral window quilt.

          Rebecca, this is a new tut Jenny posted on youtube.

          I don't see her using batting and really I don't think you have to. When I have done traditional cath. windows, it is heavy enough. I realize that this is "faux" but still, that is a lot of fabric once it is pressed, folded and stitched.

              I wonder if you could use a light batting in there..placing it on the back side so that when you turn the circle you enclose it and it's sewn on the back end...almost like when you to a rag quilt...

                Hi Mag,

                I love your idea of making this a quilt as you go quilt. I am thinking you could sandwich the batting when you put the original circles together and just cut off the part that will fold over.... so that part isn't too thick. Then you could be creative and maybe stipple the circles. I am going to try one and see if it works.

                Thanks for the idea....
                Hugs

                    When I was searching for Jenny's tutorial.... I found another one too.

                    In this one the quilter used a mid to light weight fusible and ironed it on to one side before cutting. Then she sewed an X across, then turned the circle and continued just as our Jenny did.

                    That Dream On layer cake made a beautiful quilt, Jenny.
                    Thanks for the tutorial.

                      Absolutely!! That is one of the ways they show doing it in the book. You can add wadding (batting) before you sew across it. You could even quilt anything you want in the center and the whole idea is that it would be completely finished when you are done sewing them! Someone also mentioned putting a picture in the center. Such great ideas! Thanks for asking and I am glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for your kind words.
