Cathedral Window Tutorial

11

Welcome back for another tutorial!

If you've been in the quilting world for a while, you might've seen this beautiful block show up in some quilts, and wondered how to get that look! In learning how to make this block, it amazed me is how different each tutorial can be. Today, I wanted to share my version and knowledge of this Cathedral Window that I believe is the best way to help you! It's a great technique to use too if you want to use some fabric from your stash bin. 

Feeling the softer colors today, I decided to use AGF’s Capsule collection Terra Kotta’s Desert Flora print, and AGF's Pure Solids White Linen and Blossomed print. 

For this tutorial, make sure to cut your squares the same size, in this case, all of my squares are 4’’. 

1

Take four (4) of your PE-408, White Linen fabric and fold them on the diagonal.

Take four (4) squares from Blossomed, PE-489 fabric and align two (2) blocks on each side (8).

Then, take four (4) folded squares from PE-408 and place them on top of the aligned squares.

Now, grab two blocks and place them right sides facing together. Make sure to pin so the fabrics don’t shift while sewing, remember your sewing 4 fabrics together.


5

Now, join both rows together making sure you pin the pieces so they don’t shift while sewing.

Now, place Terra Kotta’s CAP-TK-1500 4’’ square on point on top of the sewn piece. Make sure it's centered.

8

Place batting and backing fabric underneath the block piece.  

9

Fold the edges from PE-408, and with your fingers pull it towards its point and over the fabric on top.

Edge-stitch carefully along the new curved edge. You will be stitching all three layers.

Once you finish, press carefully.
