I made this cathedral window Baltimore wall hanging with one block of the “Roses” pattern and the beautiful fabric collection “Holiday”. You could use it as a table topper, too!
Like a rosebud opening to the light, this block creates a great pattern, combining the traditional square window with rhomboid and triangular shapes. A really stunning result that you must try!
Materials for this Cathedral window Baltimore wall hanging:
1 yard of muslin or a creamy cotton (42” width)
Scraps of red solid cotton (42” width)
Four rectangles 12,5″ x 5,5″ of your preferred Christmas fabrics
1 fat quarter of green solid cotton
Size: 18″ x 18”
Each unit has a base, and two folded pieces placed over this base. Here you will find the templates to download, and the video tutorial to make the central block.
Cut the pieces according to the templates.
Fold the fabric of the frames and press well. Be careful with the bias of the fabric. Place the two folded pieces on the base fabric.
When you have the block done, cut the windows with the templates, place them over the base and apply them.
Cut the rectangular pieces. Join one rectangle with the block and sew from point to point. Take another rectangle and sew it to the block like in the scheme. Now, join the two open borders and sew them together. Make the same with the other three corners.
Cut a piece of muslin for the backing and use the green cotton to make the binding. Apply a hanging sleeve if you like the wall hanging idea or leave it as it is if you prefer the table topper option. And enjoy!
As a designer, I love to play with the photos of my cathedral window quilts and projects and transform them into pattern designs. Because I love to see cathedral window EVERYWHERE!!
I made a classic cathedral window quilt years ago with a Christmas color palette and I transformed it into a pattern.

I draw this Baltimore inspired art years ago and I transformed into a fabric collection “Holiday” .
I design the “Holiday” fabric collections inspired by the beautiful Baltimore quilts and their appliqued blocks. I chose to give a Christmas style to the patterns, using the classic Christmas color palette. I hope you like them. You can find the collection here.
