Cathedral Windows pillow

I saw this on the a la mode fabric blog (shift click to open in a new window) and thought it looked so neat I just had to try it. So I decided to make one for my mom for Mother's Day. I had some trouble keeping things all lined up nicely in the intersections but otherwise thought it turned out pretty darn cool! I made a few mistakes but I hope my mom likes it anyway. I may make one for myself once I get a few other projects done. I think a pillow size is about all I can handle-it's not super hard but it's tedious. The green fabric is Tarragon Kona cotton from Robert Kaufman fabrics and the colored inserts are from the Freebird line from Moda.

Such beautiful quilting! I love the Freebird line, and you paired it so well with the green. It makes for a very striking contrast.

Cathedral windows is my favourite quilt pattern ever- but it intimidates me so :) Late nights surfing quilting blogs have me believing that I could have the patience to make one, but in the morning I am not so ambitious.
