Cathedral Windows...

I am very excited about our Pillow Talk Swap - ROUND 2 starting up and I have decided that Cathedral Windows... is the design I'll be using! They have always scared the bajesus out of me... but no longer! They were super fun... a mix between origami and sewing ( who knew )??? Now to make my practice block into a modern pillow for my new home!

  1. Wow your practice piece IS gorgeous! That will make a fabulous pillow! Cathedrals scare the beejesus out of me too - but maybe less now that you said they're fun... hmmm ;-)

  8. Beautiful! I've wanted to try them but am kind of scared... but doing it for a pillow seems doable.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

    Then, when I felt ( and I did a bit ) that they left out a step, I glanced at this one...

  19. I totally want to do this for my quilting bee month too! I would love to know more about what you are asking your ladies to do. I was having trouble breaking the windows into a block to ask people to do!

    Your sample looks awesome!
