Cathedral Square started as a block from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks special issue, Vol. 5. Since then I’ve made two quilts from this block. The one above was for the Quiltmaker 100 Blocks blog hop ….

… and here’s my larger lap-size version, made about a year later for Quilt magazine.

This is a fun design because it lends itself to so many different layout options. Both versions seen here—as well as the pattern itself—feature a layout with staggered blocks. (Staggering blocks is one of my favorite design modernization tricks.) But you can click on the 100 Blocks blog hop post to see several more possible layouts using this block. My pattern can be easily modified to use any of those alternate layouts.

To make this pattern, you need to be okay with Flying Geese. Just saying. : ) To that end, the PDF version of this pattern includes two different methods for making your Flying Geese units—you can piece them traditionally using a special four-at-a-time method for speed and efficiency (a great choice since this pattern calls for a lot of geese), or you can paper-piece them for greater accuracy. So there’s an option no matter what your comfort level with geese! But keep in mind, the Flying Geese paper-piecing template and instructions are a special bonus for the PDF version of the pattern only. The hard-copy paper version does not include the paper-piecing templates—that version only includes the traditional-piecing method. So if you want to paper-piece your geese, you’ll definitely want the PDF version of this pattern.

Other than the geese, this pattern is pretty basic—the smaller squares are strip-pieced, while the four-patch units are just your standard patchwork piecing. Those four-patches are a great way to show off some favorite prints.

You can buy Cathedral Square from my shop and Craftsy.

I’m also starting to get distributors lined up for my paper patterns, so look for them in your favorite brick-and-mortar quilt shop very soon. If you don’t see them, please ask for them! : ) (Shops: You can also email me directly to order wholesale.)

    I am trying to order the pattern. Everytime I put it into the cart and click checkout, the pattern is removed and I get a message "There are no items in your cart." I don't know how to get the PDF version with this problem. fayzer2@cox.net
