RETURN TO THE FULL CALENDAR
Betty Miller will be leading us in a method to make Cathedral Window blocks. She will review a brief history of these and then demonstrate step-by-step construction of blocks for a 12-inch square.
The 12-inch square block can be used as a pillow front, the center of a lap quilt, a decorative piece for table or wall, or if ambitious, the start of a multi-block full sized quilt.
Supplies and Tools Needed:
• One yard of background fabric. Muslin is the traditional choice but a plain color cotton (pink fabric in the picture) can also be used.
• In addition you will need 24 two-inch squares of another fabric of different color or design for the windows (gray fabric in the picture). These should be more colorful and bright to contrast with the background fabric.
• Scissors or rotary cutter, ruler, and mat if you haven't cut your fabric at home
• Needle and thread to match the background fabric
• Measuring tape or ruler to mark 1/4 inch seams
• Straight pins
• All fabrics should be washed and ironed prior to the meeting.
• Background fabric can be cut into 16 seven-inch squares. All fabrics should be cut on the true horizontal and vertical grains of the fabric.
LOCATION: The meeting is planned to be a hybrid. Those meeting in person will meet at MVUUF and those on video conference will find the link on the Members Resource page of the NGM website.
