Cathedral Window Moxie – Window to Tomorrow

If you want to machine sew a Cathedral Window quilt, this pattern is for you.  The Cathedral Window pattern is traditionally created by origami-like fabric folding and entirely hand sewn without batting resulting in a coverlet.  Cathedral Window Moxie is now a bonafide quilt resulting in a quilt sandwich: top, batting and backing.   This pattern uses patchwork techniques with a twist to construct this intriguing design into a wall hanging.
