So awhile ago I was surfing the web and I came across this beautiful type of quilting called Cathedral Windows. And it suddenly took hold of my mind and every other project HAD to be pushed aside so I could make something with the Cathedral Window tutorial. Isn’t it just beautiful??
It’s called Cathedral Window because it’s supposed to emulate stained glass (you know, like in a cathedral.) It’s an example to me of just how amazing sewing can be. Can you believe this is even a technique? I mean really, it’s just freaking awesome.
So I have to warn you, it is pretty time-intensive. And since I was in a hurry to get it all done, I didn’t take pictures of the process. But I followed this excellent tutorial for making Cathedral Windows, so please go visit there to get the full tutorial. Since it took so long I knew that there wasn’t a prayer of me making anything bigger than this size and also it’s really not very cuddly. I think this type of thing is mainly decorative, and makes GREAT artwork for a handmade nursery, which I’ve been working on for over a year now. Sigh.
I saw a pillow done with this for the front of it and it was amazing. Maybe I’ll make one for Christmas this year. Maybe.
What do you think? Do you like this type of quilting?
