Thank you for the slideshow. I've only done Cathedral Windows by hand. I can't wait to try it your way.

I have always loved this pattern but found it too complicated. Now I think I will try it! Thanks for this posting, I love it!

Thanks for posting your directions for an "all machine sewn" cathedral window!!! I've seen all machine cathedral window bed quilts in Lancaster PA made by Amish women, but could never figure out how they did it. Now I think I've discovered how. The only thing they did differently was to skip the batting and kept the framing completely solid with the print only in the window. Thanks for sharing this amazing technique!

excellent tutorial, Chris. can i question the size of the window squares?
seems to me they'd need to be a wee bit smaller than the other pieces to fit 'inside' the frame.
you've said to cut them all the same 3.5 inches.
just checking to be sure i've got it right.
love the fabrics you used too. that stripe works great as the background.
oh and i like how the back looks before adding batting/backing.
i wonder if there is a way to use fabric that is not lighter on the back as the background, in one big piece or pieced as the background/backing and not use batting and use it as a summer weight quilt.
must think thru that one a bit longer to see how i'd do it.
thanks for putting up all these pix. this is a great tutorial.

Gayle, if the glue is water soluble it will wash out once it has been washed.
tho there are many layers at the corners so its not going to be super soft.
you could/should try doing less units, maybe bigger ones and still use for a nice wall hanging or a cushion cover. good way to use up some of the scraps from quilts and make a coordinating something. just some ideas to ponder. give it a go, it really is simple. i like 3D things and working with these folded on the diagonal/bias squares has many many variations within the same context.

Chris, What kind of basting glue did you use? I purchased some glue at JoAnn's but it made my squares feel stiff(almost hard) on the corners. I am wondering if it makes a difference......

How big are the floral blocks? It's hard to tell from the pics how big this lovely piece is. You've picked wonderful fabrics.

I am going to earmark this page so I can read over this many times(If that is alright with you \). I love the finished look of this.. I got lost between view 28 and 29....I did not see you put the flowered fabric in. But like I said, I am going to go through this several more times. Is there a good book that you followed along to do this? Maybe I can get it from the library. I think this is probably my favorite of all the quilts I have seen on this site. It might have something to do with the colors.........

Good! That was what I wanted to do. They really are fun to make.
