My Prairie Cathedral Windows

Project Description

What are you most proud of? You do not have to make a carbon copy of the instructor's project. As I said, batiks are not my favorites, so I used what I had and made the project truly my own. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Get some sharp scissors, because you do more cutting and ironing than sewing. It is a bit bulky to sew together, but proceed carefully and you can do it!

Q&A with MsQuilty

Eastern Quilter asked:
Nice job! I was just reading up on the steps for this project last night and was thinking of making one--how ironic! Thanks for the suggestions and tips--nice to hear from someone who completed this. I love it!
MsQuilty answered:
thanks Eastern Quilter!
Pam NZ asked:
Lovely! This is so sweet, your fabrics worked great... lucky you having a friend like that LOL! What fabric are you going to encourage her to buy next eh?
MsQuilty answered:
thanks Pam :) I don't know what I'll get her into next ;)
patz in suffolk asked:
So nice - it looks kind of difficult, but I see you've only given it two dots. Perhaps it's not as hard as it looks, but even if it is, it's well worth the effort!
MsQuilty answered:
it really isn't difficult- it is made with fusible applique then sewing the squares together. Lots of cutting and ironing, but no curved sewing.
NanaJeanFL asked:
Love this MsQuilty! Very creative placement of the arcs!
MsQuilty answered:
thanks jean :)
Beth245 asked:
Just love this quilt - thank you for your advice - I have yet to decide on fabrics and am also not a great fan of batiks.
MsQuilty answered:
thanks Beth245. I seldom use the same fabric as the instructors use. I think it is my quilt and I will use what I like in it :)
