#jensfillerblocks Crazy 6.5″Cathedral Window

Tiny Cathedral Window

I couldn’t get this version of tiny craziness out of my head. It was more challenging than I would care to admit, but I did it and I love it!! I had so many people on instagram tell me that I’m crazy (in a good way, I hope?!) that I decided to call this the “crazy” version.

Background:
(20) 2 x 2″ squares

Print:
(21) 2 x 2″ squares

Once again, if you haven’t watched Jenny Doan’s Missouri Star Quilt Company tutorial, please do that first. I also HIGHLY recommend trying a larger version first. These tiny pieces are harder to manipulate for the desired effect, but well worth it once you have had some practice. The 5 “windows” on top may be helpful to trim down to 1 7/8″ x 1 7/8″ or even 1 3/4″ x 1 3/4″. Lay them on top before you start your window sewing and decide then. I had some raw edges pop out and I could not control it.

Cathedral windows work best, in my opinion, when they pop off of a background. All white instead of 16 prints would be amazing.

  1. This is gorgeous! I am obsessed with cathedral windows and aqua/red combination fabrics, so when I saw this block on Pinterest I became obsessed with tracking it down to the source. Could you tell me please which fabrics you used – were they from a particular collection? I would love to know.

    • They are all Bonnie & Camille by Moda fabrics from various lines, but their colors are generally pretty similar in every line. I’m so glad you like this block. Thanks for taking the time to comment!
