Wee baby Cathedral Windows quilt

I have had this little baby, hand-pieced, Cathedral Windows quilt in the "works" for some time...started...then set aside...then worked on...stored away...and pulled out and worked on...etc...

I know that it is just a little baby quilt...and I should have completed this ages ago!

*I debated sewing down the edge so that it would be a straight edge, but decided on keeping it as it is, cuz I really liked the zig zag edges or corner points*
*It is two panels of the scrappy fabric squares sewn on a muslin background. Each panel is about 23 inches wide by 46 inches overall, it is 46 inches by 46 inches.*

But yay! I have it finally completed and it's ready for a future grandbaby...

For the complete story and a few more photos, please take a peek at my post: Quilt...completed...

or on this post, I've shared some other quilts, here: Quintessential Quilts and Quilting Quandry

(And if you do get a chance to visit, please leave a comment on those posts, so that I know you stopped by.)

I appreciate all of you and am inspired by all the lovely quilts & projects completed and shown here.
*Blessings & Aloha!*

Your baby quilt is gorgeous. The first quilt I ever made was a Cathedral Windows Quilt... but I put sashings between the blocks... it looks stunning too.

I'm working on a cathedral windows quilt at the moment and know how much work is involved so I can definitely understand how long it's taken pressure as it's such a beauty!
