Slow and Steady Mock Cathedral Window Assembly

The mock denim cathedral window quilt assembly is a slow and steady process.  First I cut out the circles using my AccuQuilt Go out of the black denim.  Next, I cut out the batik squares for each circle, then cut out the fusible web for each circle.  Then I trim those batik squares again because I cut them all out too big.  

For assembly, I then attach the circles in a straight manner (not that easy).  Iron down the fusible web and batik squares and then finally sew down the circle flaps.  I'm just not that sure how big I want the quilt to be.  I love the color contrasts the batiks provide.  I may have to buy more black denim.  I'm leaving the last column open in case I want to make the quilt larger.   

Here's the progress over the last week.  In the last photo, our dog Mindy was out cold on the floor and I thought she needed a blanky.

Thanks for stopping by!  


  1. I started one of these a few years back. I'm nearly finished; but like you, I may want to make it slightly bigger. I planned on giving it to my daughter as a picnic blanket...it's so heavy and tough! Yours is looking great!

  2. I really like this and you've inspired me to think about doing this with all those old jeans I've saved to be made into a picnic quilt. Someday!
    Nice job!
