I have Lynne Edwards' book on cathedral window quilts. In the intro to the book she talks about the origins of this style of quilt. She says the first documented evidence of the cathedral window design used in a quilt is from the 1933 Chicago World Fair. She says that the design seems to go back several centuries in Korea and China (though not necessarily used for quilts). I agree that Barbara Brackman would be a good source of info.

Cathedral window quilts have a unique and fascinating construction method, unlike any other quilt. Instead of layers of backing and batting and a pieced top, they are traditionally constructed of squares of muslin, folded into several layers and sewn together by hand. On top of this base, gracefully curving bias folds are turned and stitched to make "frames" over inserts of colorful fabric "windows." I first became interested in cathedral windows several years ago, and I've looked far and wide for instructions. Some can be found (with effort) on the Internet, but they are inconsistent and sometimes incomplete or sloppy. Laura Nownes' Cathedral Window (Classic Quilt Series, No. 5) is a nice technical resource, but it's been replaced by this book as my favorite resource. The instructions and illustrations are very detailed and clear; and there are several fascinating variations included. The book steps you through from the simplest pincushion project to larger and more elaborate pillows and wall hangings. Instructions are given for either hand- or machine-stitching each step of the construction of the base squares. Stitching the inserts is always done by hand.

The biggest problem I ran into in this book is the technique described for stitching in the inserts. She uses a technique of a backstitch on the surface of the fabric, which leaves a line of tiny dots of thread along the edge of each frame; omitting the (at least to my mind) much more elegant method of using applique stitch - tiny stitches that just catch the very edge of the frames and are more or less invisible. I personally feel that the method given in the book is inferior, hence not giving it a 5-star review. (This is, after all, a crucial step in the quilt's construction!)

Another, more minor, complaint is the high-falutin' attitude of the author when she speaks very dismissively of the traditional materials, questioning why one would want to use 'plain calico' (the UK term for muslin) when there are so many beautiful quilting fabrics out there. Well, strictly from a practical standpoint, these unique quilts require a lot of fabric - probably about three times as much as a traditional quilt. The queen-size quilt I'm planning would require around 20 yards of 45-inch-wide fabric. At roughly $10 to $12 a yard for quality quilting fabric (and who knows how much for the silks the author uses heavily), that's a lot of cash to lay down, even if you're going to be using scraps for the inserts. Muslin is certainly much more affordable, at least for a bed-size quilt. (However, I should note that there do not appear to be any bed-size projects in the book.) Not only that, some of us do prefer a more traditional aesthetic!

The bottom line is, I think this book is well worth buying if you're interested in making projects with the cathedral window techniques. My personal advice, though, would be to research hand-applique techniques and use those to stitch down the window frames - or at least try both ways and see which you prefer!

I've always loved the cathedral windows pattern; In fact my first quilt ever was a King size cathedral windows quilt for my parents when I was a Sr. in high school! I love all the variations that have come out in the years following, and plan on making some of the newer versions in the future.

Just recently took a quilting class, teacher shared with us this book. I fell in love with it.
The quilts in the book are heart stopping beautiful. They are alot simpler to make than what the picture might suggest. Good instructions with pictures. One thing I will share is some hand sewing is involved with the Cathedral pattern.
Purchasing this book and you will have a real treasure!

I love cathedral windows and was excited about this book. Again another disappointed in the quality of paper and printing. I had to have my book replaced due to overprinting of some pages. The second book was ok but I did find some hard to read sections, but really did I want to replace yet another copy? I can power thru. Don't get me wrong, the patterns and instructions are wonderful, just the quality of book material sucked.

I saw this book at the local library, had a quick look and new it was just what I needed. Having never made a cathedral window block, I found just so much information in this book.
I was delightfully surprised to see the colourways in which of the quilts are made, particularly light to dark and everything in between. I like a lot of colour in my quilts, and am eager to make a white with red window.

I have already shown some of my quilting friends, and must say they are very impressed with step by step instructions just as I am.

There are so many different variations of the original Cathedral Windows pattern that I have. I was looking for specific dimensions and have not been through the entire book at this time. I am looking forward to trying some of the patterns.

My "GoTo" book for anything to do with Cathedral Windows. Great price, Seller,Service. Go for it.
Terrible book. The instructions are obscure and skip important steps. Great picture book, but terrible for instructions
