Cathedral Window

I came across these beautiful cathedral window pincushions on Laura's blog. Laura used Kim's tutorial on how to create these. Kim's tutorial was so easy to follow. I have always liked cathedral window blocks, but they just seem so complicated. If you have been wanting to make these, I suggest checking out Kim's tutorial.

I used some of my Denyse Schmidt collection for this pincushion. 

This only took me about an hour to create, and it was my first time! I couldn't believe it. I made this for my secret partner for the Spring Mug Rug Swap. I purposely include the red and white checker box fabric in this pincushion to match the mug rug. *Squeak* This is so just charming!

By the way, I baked these delicious cheese, garlic, and butter biscuits last week. It took me 15 minutes in total. I highly recommend this very simple recipe found on the Food Network. These biscuits were especially requested by my husband. I can eat four at a time!

Warm, cheesy, buttery biscuits straight out of the oven!

That little pincushion is so adorable. I can't believe it took you so little time to make it. I don't think I would be nearly as speedy.

I've always loved Cathedral Window. It's an amazing pattern that I have never tried, it looks like a bit of magic! Your pincushion came out so cute. Thank you for the biscuit link, having people over on Wed. night and will make them.

Your pincushion is adorable! :) And those biscuits look yummy! I'm going to try them, but I'm beginning to suspect that I'm a huge failure when it comes to cooking cheesy things. >_<
