Winda the Dutch Quilter saw the one seam dimensional flying geese post and had a brilliant idea – what if one was turn around to form a cathedral window looking block? Well, this is what it would look like:
It isn’t quite the same – the curves are of the window fabric and not the frame so you don’t get that pretty texture, and there is a seam down the middle. However, it takes about three minutes to make this entire block! Winda, you’re a genius, and I’m going to enjoy making these Cathedral Winda blocks!
wow, thanks for the compliments, but please don’t forget to compliment yourself too! I mean, you were the one that came up with the “curled”edge geese block….
If it is okay with you I want to link back to you and your tutorial on my own blog.
hugs from the Netherlands
I’d love for you to link to the posts and tutorial, Winda!
Oooh, thanks for posting this! I love it! And that seam down the middle just looks like a quilting line to me 🙂
[…] to add: Be sure to check out this post about using the curved flying geese to make something reminiscent of a Cathedral Window block. […]
I soo have to try this. I just made a cathedral window pillow and it was so involved! I bet if you added a contrasting piece of fabric to the window you wouldn’t even be able to tell that 1) that seam is there and 2) that it is 2 separate blocks!
When I create a line of flying geese are they meant to join or have space between them? this is my first attempt at a “flock” of geese.
The “nose” of one goose should just touch the bottom of the goose above it. This post shows a mini quilt that has a string of geese and you can see how they should line up. You don’t want to cut off the point, though.
