The folding technique for the Cathedral Windows block is somewhat similar to origami, and the sewing is minimal. Once folded, a brightly colored square is centered, encased by the folds, and stitched down using a blind stitch (by hand OR machine). These smaller blocks can then be sewn together to build a quilt of any size. Unlike most quilts, no batting or layering with a backing is required.

Students will make a small sample using this stunning technique while following along with Linda as she helps you unlock the mystery of the making of a Cathedral Windows quilt.
