Cathedral Window Quilts: The Classic Folded Technique and a Wealth of Variations



Author: Lynne Edwards

More than twenty-five projects capturing the classic, three-dimensional beauty of cathedral window quilts—with step-by-step instructions.

In Cathedral Window Quilts, internationally renowned quilt designer Lynne Edwards returns to this beautiful patchwork technique by popular demand. Her uniquely creative and accessible approach brings cathedral window quilting up to date, capturing quilters’ imaginations and inspiring them to learn and enjoy this traditional craft.

As well as the classic cathedral window technique, Lynne includes techniques that are similar in their appearance but not in their construction. Projects including heirloom quilts, wall hangings, pillows, bags, and pincushions give quilters a chance to try their hand at large or small designs.

In recognition of her contribution to arts and crafts, Lynne was awarded an MBE, a Member of the Order of the British Empire.
