cathedral quilt

Classified as a “patchwork” quilt meaning little pieces of fabric sewn together to create a large design.  Although the cathedral quilt looks amazingly complicated, it is a fairly simple process albeit time-consuming…

The doll quilt shown above requires a little less time commitment but remains satisfying upon completion.

Cathedral Windows is a block type pattern using reverse appliqué & large amounts of folded muslin.  The quilt features modular blocks of an interlocking circular design that frame small squares or diamonds of colorful light-weight cotton.  For great directions with pictures click here & here.

The concept can be used for pillows, table runners or decorative bedding as well.  A nice use for any scrap fabrics or dream up an original colorful design.

“It took me years and years of trial efforts to work out that there is absolutely no knitting triumph I can achieve that my husband will think is worth being woken up for.”  ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit’s End:  Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much
