I have been working on this cathedral windows mini quilt since before we went to New York (Mid September 2018). It was supposed to just be a quick little project to make before our holiday because I didn’t have time to start a new big quilt project. And I also wanted to use the samples from my Tropical Leaves Spoonflower designs for an actual project.
Oh by the way! I just remembered: Spoonflower have free shipping worldwide at the moment, but it ends tomorrow at 11:59 p.m. EST (whatever time that is in your timezone – for the UK that’s 4:59 a.m. on Saturday. Timezones, it’s like time travel!) so if you’ve had your eye on some designs on on Spoonflower, now may be the time to strike. :-)
Well, it’s six+ months later and it’s still not finished! Actually, I thought I was done with it, apart from a hanging sleeve on the back. But I decided that I couldn’t live with the wonky joins of the squares, see picture at the top. So wonky. And I’m usually pretty easy going when it comes to things not being ‘perfect’. So I added an extra task to the project: to sew on buttons. Which is a common thing in cathedral window quilts/cushion covers and I guess now I know why, the buttons cover all manner of wonky sins. :-D
I was a little bit skeptical about using buttons in lots of colours, I pondered using all white, but I think the colourful buttons add an extra something to the quilt.
Hopefully, this ‘quick’ project will be done very soon, buttons and hanging sleeve and all.
