Cathedral window quilts have a unique and fascinating construction method, unlike any other quilt. Instead of layers of backing and batting and a pieced top, they are traditionally constructed of squares of muslin, folded into several layers and hand sewn together. On top of this base, gracefully curving bias folds are turned and stitched to make "frames" over inserts of colorful fabric "windows". This is an amazingly beautiful dimensional quilt that has been hand stitched. Because of the detail and the folding, it is not suitable for hand quilting. The layers are much to thick for that. And so the backing is also muslin that is part of the folded process. These quilts were made in the early days of quilt making in our country, but it is very unusual to find this pattern well done, hand made, and this beautiful in quilts of todays selections.
