Cathedral Windows

We had a great class last week at Hoppin’ Bobbin in Aberdeen! Cathedral Windows by Machine! The entire quilt comes together so much more quickly when constructing it with a sewing machine. Hand-sewn cathedral windows, while absolutely beautiful, take a long, long time. The students in this class picked such a variety of fabrics for their quilt too! Wow! I was quite impressed!

And by the way, did you know that a Cathedral Window quilt is not really a quilt at all? It traditionally does not have the three layers; top, batting and backing – so it can not be called a quilt.  Most quilt shows put it in the “other” category – just so you know.

    How much fabric do you need for a lap quilt

  2. Erin says:

    Hi Sharon, The lap quilt is 45″ x 63″. The patterns says 10 yards of backing fabric and 1-1/2 yards for the window fabric. It sounds like a lot of fabric but remember, that is everything and once the quilt is finished, its finished! No batting, no quilting!
