TUTORIAL: Film At Five Quilt

Der wandert doch sofort auf meine To Do-Liste. 😊

Wedding Dress Blue

Another example of the fun to be had with scraps!  2-1/2″ squares are one of my standard scrap cuts.  By regularly cutting scrap a little at a time, I always have materials ready when inspiration strikes.  Of course, you can cut a lot all at once, or start with any precut 2-1/2″ strips you might have lying around.  Either way, remember that all those little colored pieces add up to over 3-1/2 yards of fabric.  Aren’t you thrifty?!


86-1/2″ x 86-1/2″


A big pile of 2-1/2″ squares!  (841, to be exact). You could also use 54 2-1/2″ strips by WOF or about 1-1/2 standard jelly rolls.  Use up those leftovers. This is only a LITTLE  pile, about enough to make one block.

4 yards background fabric.  I used white, but wouldn’t this look marvelously modern-Amish with black?!

6-8 yards backing fabric, depending on how you like…

Block 10: windmill cathedral window – Textured 4-patch quilt

Eine tolle Variante des Cathedral Windows! Ich staune immer wieder, wie vielseitig und variabel Patchwork&Quilten doch ist!

Sewn Up

Close up

Block type: 4-patch

Block size: 10 1/2 inches

Colour scheme: reds, greens and neutrals

Texture/fabric manipulation: fabric folding


  • two red 6 in squares
  • two 6 in pale green squares
  • five 5 1/2 in cream squares

Making the windmill cathedral window

Cut five 5 1/2 in cream squares.

Take a cream square and place it on a mat.

Take another cream square, fold it in half and press it on the diagonal. Then place it on the cream square as per picture. Pin on the corner.

Do the same with the next one.

And the third one.

To place the last one you’ll need to lift the first one as per picture.

Here you have it.

Stitch at 1/8 in from the border all around to hold the pieces well in place before the next step.

Now pick up each edge and fold it back as per picture…
