          You know, Lisa, you are taunting me. I see some of these quilts - and some that members have brought to our local quilt guild, and wonder how in the world someone finds the time to get all of those little blocks done. I struggle getting a quilt done with big blocks. I admire their precision - I must have bigger and more clumsy hands and fingers.

          Thanks for sharing.

            That bed spread is gorgeous! I'd kill my cat (or husband) if I caught one of them lying down on it!

              I am trying to make a table runner of the cathedral window. I have only got the prep work done so far! They are so pretty, but it is definitely going to take a while to complete
              To quilt or not to quilt?.....what a ridiculous question!

                      The cathedral window quilts aren't that hard. It's a LOT of prep work and most of it is sewn by hand. I have one in progress, as it will be for many years, I'm sure. The women in the video are working on one that is spanning 3 generations.

                      H - is it HELPFUL?
                      I - is it INSPIRING?
                      N - is it NECESSARY?
                      K - is it KIND?

                        Beautiful! I made a cathedral window pillow years ago. Very time intensive prep, ironing, etc. I love to hand sew so it seemed easy once I got going on it. Seems it would make a very heavy quilt and I certainly would not back it.

                          Have you ever seen the Charming Windows technique? I've been dying to try it but haven't yet.

                          Makes a cute Cathedral-Style pillow or quilt.
