Some quilt patterns just don't lend themselves to machine piecing. The cathedral ceiling is one of them.
Not to be confused with the more famous cathedral window, the ceiling is a series of eight pointed stars intersected by shaped crosses.
This is mine so far. I like seeing it on the wooden table as the richness of the wood is not dissimilar to the missing burnt orange intersectors.
When it is completed, the finishing touch is a wee suffolk puff in the centre of each block, to represent the boss in the ceiling.
A real cathedral ceiling, from which the quilt draws its inspiration.It may take me a few more years to complete this quilt, and to be honest I'm a bit over the autumn colour scheme of it already. But I will finish it!! I will!! :)
