About the Quilt:


The Cathedral Window is a stunning, traditional quilt pattern that is truly unique.  The pattern became very popular in the early 1900s, when bits and pieces of colorful fabrics were showcased within large amounts of inexpensive fabric (like muslin) making this a pattern that many at the time could afford to make.   
 
The quilt is comprised of individual squares that are folded precisely and sewn with curves to create small windows.  Once the squares are completed, they are sewn together into the larger project.  All of the quilting occurs during the making of the smaller blocks rather than later on.  The folded blocks are added together until the quilt is the desired size.
