Cathedral Window Pincushion

The cathedral window pattern has been around for a long time, but I've never had the desire to make a whole cathedral window quilt, although there are some beautiful ones out there.  Recently (for me, which actually means six to eight months ago), I noticed bunches of cathedral window pincushions crop up everywhere and decided that making one would be a good way to satisfy my craving to try the pattern.

Even though I'm trying not to start new projects, I thought doing a little quick-and-done project after having made the entry deadline for Seymour would be just the thing (of course I'm miles behind blogging about it).  I used the Moda Bake Shop Tutorial and made up four of these babies.  Not sure what I'll do with them all, but I'll definitely keep one of them.  I didn't intend for them to be Christmassy, but a bunch of Christmas scraps just jumped out of the bin and begged to be used, so two of them have a wintery sort of feel.
