Cathedral Window Blocks

Join us to make Cathedral Window quilt blocks using a modern construction technique on a sewing machine!

Cathedral Window quilt blocks are a folded patchwork design with a peek-a-boo effect of interlocking curves. With the layering, these blocks are constructed where piecing and quilting are completed simultaneously. This block was popular in the 1930’s using a traditionally hand stitched technique. But, in this class, you will be learning a modern technique from Lisa Ellis that is done on a sewing machine. 

In this class, you will learn the basics of constructing a Cathedral Window block and explore different layout possibilities. Each student will get a copy of Lisa Ellis's book to take home for further inspiration on the variety of project inspiration photos.

PLEASE NOTE: Many Students will have additional sewing tasks that will need to be completed outside of class.
