Cathedral Windows

My back is super out.  As in O.U.T. .... 
 
OUT!
 
All I'm able to do is sit around and work on hand projects. 
 
DARN! 
 
My poor husband and son are having to do everything;  all the cooking and cleaning. 
 
Bless their pea pickin' hearts. 

I'm stuck here sewing with lots of Fox News, BBC, Netflix, Harry Potter movies,
Pinterest and your blogs. :) 
 
I worked a little on my Cathedral Window.  I'm using my mother-in-law's old pattern she gave me.  I'm also using tons of Moda Candy or their little 2 1/2" mini charms.  They are brilliant for Cathedral Windows because they are pre-cut and perfectly scrappy.  You'll have a little piece of everything in your quilt with very little repeats. 
 


 
Birds and Flowers...my 2 favorite things in life.
 
 
 
"The touch, the feel of cotton.  The fabric of our lives....."  la la la

 My precious.  !!!  A piece of "vintage" Fig Tree from Moda, the backing to a much loved
red and yellow quilt.

I love your cathedral windows, one day, I'll get up the nerve to try them. Also, had to tell you, I watch Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings movies whenever I am crafting.

Wow...that's a cute cathedral window quilt. How big will it be? I love the look of them but have never tried them...maybe I'm just too lazy.

Hope your back gets better soon. Hurray for Fox News ;-)

Birds and flowers - 2 things definitely worth loving in a quilt! Sorry about your back, hope you're feeling better soon, I know how draining it can be, sending you much love!

Wow!! I can only imagine how heavy it must be seeing all those small windows in there - it's looking gorgeous and can't wait to see the finished quilt!

Hope your back is getting better, take care. =)
