    has anyone done a cathedral?

    if so, can you tell me if it is okay to sew down the curvey parts with a machine or do they have to be sewn by hand?

    (hope that makes sense!).

    You can do it by machine, I just made sure I have something pointy closeby in case I need to hold down the points.
    Can't wait to see it when you're done.

        This is the closest project I have done to do cathedral and yes, I stitched the curves on the machine....

          OMG... I think I've got it!!!! It's been ages since I've been able to post links... to those that have tried to help,, I found that if I click on the "blue square above" in quick reply, it does something (heck if I know what).. that has helped... doing the happy dance all over my keyboard!!!!!!

              God Bless, Wendy!
              I did a cathedral window pin cushion, once.
              One tiny 5" square.
              YOWZER....
              I really need to get off the exclamation point.
              It may give people the idea that I'm bright and cheerful all the time....

                I made a pincushion, I used my seam ripper to hold fabric in place to the needle. image.jpg

                  ok...another question! I've watched two you tube videos on this and neither one tell you how big the little square in the center has to be or how to deal with it.

                  when I fold it...you can see the fold...can you see what I mean from this pic...do I just kind of trim it later or should it be much smaller than the center diamond???

                        yay Babs! What blue button?

                        I like this tutorial

                        I'm going to follow it because it uses batting.

                            Also cute but not the look I 'm going for.
