QAL #2 - Cathedral Windows Using 1-Seam Flying Geese Method »
Type of item: Home Decor
Style: Mod, Romantic, Cute
1 yard of tiny hearts calico fabric for the background and back of the cushion cover, muslin for the frames and a variety of pre-cut hearts purchased some time ago from Keepsake Quilting for the window panes.
What was your inspiration?
I'd made a traditional 36"X36" Cathedral Windows quilt in January 2012, was very pleased with it, but the process was so tedious and time-consuming that I was discouraged from making another. Then I came across a video on You Tube, hosted by Alex Anderson, where Ricky Tims demonstrated the construction of Flying Geese blocks requiring just one seam. The sides of the FG were dimensional and the idea occurred to me that this same method could be used to create Cathedral Window blocks. I was hooked and this is the lovely outcome.
What are you most proud of?
I am most proud that an I was able to take an idea from concept to execution as successfully as I did. I was confident enough to conduct a Quilt-ALong for my quilting buddies.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
The size of each window pane should be a quarter inch smaller than the finished frame. So measure and cut the panes after the first block is constructed.
