|Work in progress|
Well it's Saturday and the sun was shining so I grabbed a quick moment to take a photo of my cathedral windows quilt that I making. It is approximately 39" wide and I want to make it long enough to fit on a cot bed. It is only two rows of cathedral window blocks but look how many windows those two rows create? It's fantastic, I love it, it's fiddly but in a good way! Don't mind the blank spot, I just need to add some little colored windows!
|The width - the length has a long way to go!!!|
In my tutorial I made the block based on a 9" square but this quilt is based on a 6" square, the "window" measures 1 1/2", having said that I have started cutting the window slightly larger because 1 1/2" was a bit too tight. I love making this quilt and seeing the colours build. I am sticking to the same colours i.e the hearts, the japanese red fabric and the greens, most of these fabrics are from my new stash. I just couldn't help myself I had to cut a strip off here and there to start using them. Despite the fact that this quilt is ideal for scrap fabrics!
Any way this is as far as I can go because I need to buy more white fabric so until then I cannot proceed. I will post another photo when I have gone further along with it.
So what do you think? You going to give it a go, I warn you now you need lots of background fabric, if you do give it a go show us a piccy!
