Cathedral Window 15, 16 from Virtual Quilter


Much more interesting.

I think those narrow curved lines could be done with narrow strips of fabric plus fusible cut on the bias … and ironed on to the background very carefully.

The Beastly Y-Seam Block Has a Name: Cathedral Window by Nancy Cabot, 1933 Chicago Tribune from Cheeky Cognoscenti

When I was recreating, resizing, recoloring and revising the Moda Modern Building Blocks Sampler in EQ8 Quilt Design Software, swapping out some of the blocks for others in my EQ Block Library, I didn't pay much attention to the information contained in the software "notecard" for each block.  After toiling away at all of these Y-seams, however, I was curious about where this block I'm making came from and I went back to my software to find out.

I like this one, designed before I started redrawing applique blocks. Some of these blocks have been redrawn, others are waiting patiently for their turn … way more patiently than me!

I wouldn’t change much in the second design … except the colours. They need to be more like the glowing colours of stained glass.

Simply lovely, but needs a colour change like the last couple.
