"Machine Stitched Cathedral Windows, Updating an Old Favorite", Published by Martingale & Co. 1999

If you have always loved Cathedral Window Quilts, if you have thought them too difficult or time consuming, then you will be as excited as I am by this new approach. This book introduces a new concept for constructing Cathedral Window quilts that expands the design possibilities. I call it the Foundation Grid Method

Machine Stitched Cathedral Windows includes 12 beautiful quilts, complete instructions and full size templates.

This book offers an opportunity to revisit Cathedral Window Quilts in less time and with less handwork. For those who love new and innovative techniques it offers some exciting and contemporary design choices.

 

Both books are out of print but are available for $26.95 each plus shipping. Email or write for more info.

"Machine-Stitched Cathedral Stars", Published by Martingale & Co. 2001

Using the same techniques introduced in "Machine Stitched Cathedral Windows" these designs add some new elements. You can now create glorious stars. Believe it or not, these complex-looking quilts are stitched completely by machine! A simple foundation-grid method creates striking illusions of "floating" star blocks and 12 step-by-step projects illustrate how the technique works.
