We had a blast in the Clubhouse yesterday, making Cathedral Windows!! Gwen is such a good teacher…no yelling at us…well hardly any yelling…and NO cuffing us on the sides of our heads when we did something stupid…Gwen has great restraint!!
It was a very pleasant, relaxing day…for most of us!! I took some candid shots of the ladies working just after lunch… It takes awhile to prep the background, getting it ready for the wee 2 1/2” windows…
Yup…this is mine (below). I wasn’t happy with my window fabric…it was screaming baby quilt! (I was hoping to use up the left over fabric from my Hexagon Quilt…)
It’s pretty fabric…called Nature’s Chorus…but not the look I wanted!
I need to go shopping for something better…something more sophisticated…something worthy of windows!! So instead of hand stitching my window openings down I prepped more background blocks…
I know it LOOKS like a mess….
But these little babies need to be flipped and pressed and formed into blocks ready for that lovely window fabric that has yet to be bought!!
Someday I’m hoping mine will look like Gwen’s…all grown up and sophisticated!!

Sorry, Gwen doesn’t make house calls!!:o))
Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Stitching!!~P
