No worries, the tutorial shows you exactly how to create a square pattern quilt from circles.
The cathedral window rag quilt pattern requires a bit of sewing experience. You are shown step-by-step photos and detailed written introduction on how to make cathedral window rag quilt. The cathedral window quilt is sewn using the rag quilt method. ( Where you make small quilt ‘sandwiches’ and sew them all together).
For some quilts, your choice of backing fabric has no effect on the front of the quilt but for this design the backing is a major design feature. The cathedral window rag quilt shown uses one fabric for the front and one for the back and gives an intriguing result. For more variety, use a selection of fabric colors and patterns for the front. However, the ‘Cathedral Window Rag Quilt Pattern‘ design is best if you use one color fabric for all your backing circles, and if that fabric is reasonably plain… a perfect way to use up those dull bits of fabric leftover from pillows or lining curtains!
