I have several ufos. I have young kids in the house so it's going to take a long time to finish this cathedral windows quilt. But I'll give you all the support you need to finish. :)

OK This is a quilt I have thought about for a long time. Cathedral windows can ce one gorgous quilt. Have'nt ever even made the block before so it will be another lessen learned. We'll have to stay in touch to see how we progress and encourage each other to finish, I really don't need another UFO. LOL

I'm working on cathedral windows, and am just working on getting the basic background of folded muslin me before I add any of the "windows". I'm thinking of using kona solids in a spectrum of colors. Working on making it a king size, so lots of work to do yet!

Thankyou for welcoming me to the Traditional Quilters group!

These are my favourite quilts.  I have been collecting antique reproduction

fabrics from Netherlands, other European countries, and America, for years.

I also collect Traditional patterns for quilts and other antique-style projects.

It is such a beautiful quilt Penny and certainly deserving of the ribbon. Congratulations.

The Churn Dash pattern is a great beginner's quilt.  Penny, you have taken it to a whole new level.  Love your arrangement and sure understand why it won!  Congratulations!

I made three Shoo Fly quilts when I first began.  I didn't mean to make three, but really got into making those blocks!  When I finally stopped making blocks and started putting them together, I had enough for 3 queen sized quilts!  :)

Penny your quilt is stunning, I never liked the churn dash, the way it's normally done. The way you have arranged the blocks is absolutely lovely. Beautiful work.

Penny I love your churn dash quilt! I like all kinds of quilts, but I think white or cream with happy feminine colors, like yours are my favorite. Great job!

Penny, not sure how I missed this, but the quilt is truly wonderful!!!
