Cathedral Window

I recently had a reader ask what all the gridwork was for on one of my previous posts. I love to do cathedral window background work. I will mark my background with 1/2" diagonal gridwork, quilt the lines, and then fill in with the "windows"...of course I need to add more detail and add itty bitty scribbling inside the windows. These look good without the scribbling too! I'm working on a piece for auction for the upcoming Sisters Quilt Show and am adding tiny beads to it too. This will be my airplane project while flying to Manchester for the MQX show next week...I'll share pictures when I get back!
