Red Cathedral window quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Finally finishing the quilt. I broke my wrist last year just as the quilt was about 4 ft square, then had to rest in between stitching sessions due to the strain on my wrist. What advice would you give someone starting this project? It doesn't matter how long it takes to make anything.

Its gorgeous! How did you put the boarders on since the cathedral windows finish themselves.? I love it!
dxnmarlou answered:
Thanks, I put the banding on like a normal patchwork quilt one side, then attached the white on the back the same it was fiddly I added the wadding and finished it of. Hard to explain, just to say luckily it all worked out fine, I think the banding finishes it off and my Daughter is delighted with it, the only problem is it is very heavy.
