Island Batik March Challenge 'Try a Technique'

This month Challenge from Island Batik for their ambassadors is to try a new technique. I have been wanting to do a Cathedral Window for some time but wasn't real interested in doing it in a whole quilt. Then I saw Missouri Star's quilt tutorial on your tube  it is a fun and quick way to make a cathedral window, you will just love how quick and easy it is.
I used a charm pack of Island Batik Sea Foam and a stack of white 5 inch squares.

The white squares are ironed in half and laid on top of the colored squares and then everything is sewed together.

After all the squares are sewn together then I laid squares on top of the white.
Before sewing I sandwiched the top, batting and backing.
Then the white is pulled over the top of the square and sewn down forming the cathedral window. That is all there is to it. click on the link above to watch the tutorial.
This is the back, it is quilt as you go, so when you are done sewing the windows you are done quilting.


  1. This looks interesting, I would love to try this technique. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I saw a demo of that somewhere online. I do want to try it at some point.

  3. That is a great way to do cathedral windows. I love the way they look and this is the easiest of many techniques I have seen.

  4. Your 'windows' turned out much nicer than Jenny's did on her tutorial. Nice technique.

  5. This is a technique on my list to try one day too, thanks, I am bookmarking that tutorial to try later. You have done a beautiful job, your windows look perfect.


Comments are always welcome and definitely enjoyed.
