Cathedral Window Boxes
I’ve been working on cathedral window boxes. I made a bunch of pillows for Christmas gifts (most of which I forgot to take photos).
I always put something in the windows. It’s just fun.
Since we’re going to be on the road all summer, I decided to do a quilt/spread for my bed. Bob drives the RV and I sew. I did the basic top (mostly by machine) before we left.
I cut out about 50 different fabric squares of sea life, and I am hand sewing the squares into their windows.
I actually decided to add a layer of batting in each square and sewing on the buttons tacks down the batting. I put buttons on the back, too. It adds strength and it hides the stitches.
Usually Window boxes don’t need batting as they are already several layers of fabric, but I wanted it thick and warm.
Here are another of the pillows I did.
Here is a top I just finished that will be a pillow when we get home.
I liked the other coke pillow, but I wanted to use slightly bigger squares to get more of the design in.
