I worked as a nurse in a nursing home 45 years ago, and one of my lady residents at the time, showed me how to make the cathedral windows, and I started mine way back then. Believe it or not, she had completed 2 full size quilts. I know of any other way it would be possible to make one except by hand, Besides the physical beauty of the quilt, it also has a beautiful outcome, as it is finished with every block. (At least in the size you have completed. Right now mine is the size of a queen sized pillow sham top. lol I showed my grandmother how to make it, and she made enough blocks to make a 3/4 length sleeve jacket, for herself. I hope I live long enough to at least get mine to a usable stage. Or it may turn out to be a couple of throw pillows. You did a beautiful job, and you do have something to crow about, as well as whoever gets it. Sorry I'm so long winded.
