All-Machine Sewn Cathedral Window Blocks
I was so excited the day I found Chris' tutorial on how to sew a cathedral window completely by machine. http://quiltwithus.connectingthreads.com/photo/albums/cathedral-window-wallhanging (By the way ~ the community of quilters on Connecting Threads website - "quilt with us" is really a neat place!
I LOVE cathedral windows and hope to someday make a bed size quilt - but for now have been making smaller items. My banner picture is a table runner that was done mostly by hand. However, the above block became a small pillow and was done all by machine. It is amazing how well it comes out. I once saw table runners and bed quilts in Lancaster, PA that were cathedral windows all done by machine - but I could never figure out how they did it. If you love cathedral windows - you may like to try following Chris' tutorial - its really not hard - it looks harder than it really is. Happy Spring!
