Cathedral Windows Quilt
A Cathedral Windows Quilt is inspired by the beauty of stained glass windows. Unlike most quilts, traditional Cathedral Windows Quilts are made without batting, with muslin as the base creating a square base and a calico print in the window. The folding technique of the traditional construction method leaves you with a finished quilt back. Contemporary methods have updated the design and construction process. There are options for batting and backing depending on the specific method. Not all of the blocks are square, they can be rectangles and squares of different sizes. The windows can be pieced for even more color and design. No matter how you make this quilt, it's a beautiful way to show off fabric in the window portion of the blocks.
