We’ve always loved the look of Cathedral Window quilts but dreaded all that picky hand stitching to create the window sashes. Lucky for us, Jenny at Missouri Star Quilt Co. has a method for doing all the stitching by machine.
In the following video you’ll see Jenny demonstrate using 5″ charm squares to make Cathedral Window blocks by machine. Not only are the window sashings sewn down in a fraction of the time, but the entire project can become a quilt-as-you-go project. Ingenious!
At the end of the video Jenny shows us a quilt made from smaller squares, which has a more traditional look.
What a great shortcut for your next Cathedral Window quilt project!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
