Cathedral Window

Background

00/00/0000 - This quilt was made by my mother who began studying the pattern of how to make this quilt in the 1960s when she saw a picture of the Cathedral Window quilt in a magazine. She worked as a tailor and was an expert seamstress. She worked on the quilt during the late 70s and completed the quilt, signed Rita Cote, 1980, just before she passed away. Each window of fabric comes from a piece of cloth of clothes that she sewed for our entire family. The quilt is like a story board of events in our lives--baby clothes, marriages, play clothes, curtains, bedspreads, shirts for my brothers and more. The quilt came to be mine when my mother passed away..
