Cathedral Windows


I like to try new things and see if it is a project that I have the time to whip out. If it is something too intense, I do not have time for it. So I have been rolling around the idea of a Cathedral Windows quilt top. I seem to have a ton of fabric scraps that have something of interest on them, so I was thinking this would be a great idea. I read a bunch of online tutorials and what not, usually I need something to motivate me, light a fire under me you know. One of my online friends was also thinking about it and shared a list of her fave tutorials on it. The Sometime's Crafter made sense to me... http://sometimescrafter.blogspot.com/2009/10/tutorial-cathedral-window.html So away I dashed to the sewing machine...and this is what i came up with about a half an hour later. There is room for lots of improvement, but the basics are all there. If you have ever rolled around the idea of trying these, but felt it was too difficult, go try it, you will be pleasantly surprised.
