That's beautiful!  A really fun take on the Cathedral Windows style.  But I don't understand what you mean about it being "mock".  It looks like a "proper" Cathedral Windows quilt.  What did you do that was different?

The maker can correct me, but it looks like this quilt used circular pieces of fabric. Traditional cathedral windows are made with folded squares.
Also compare this quilt and the traditional cathedral windows quilt in the link-they look similar, but not the same. The most obvious difference being that a traditional cathedral windows has folded back edges whereas most "mock" versions do not.
Either way it has turned out well.

I don't know what the maker used for a tutorial, but a great tutorial for MOCK cathedrals is here http://sunshinescreations.vintagethreads.com/2007/05/tutorial-mock-cathedral-windows.html

They are made with circles then put together. My boys are making one for their grandma's birthday right now. It's easy enough for my 6, 8, and 10 year old to do.

I'm sorry that I didn't reply to this!  I've been travelling for work and must have missed your question.
cmoore and Ezri_B are correct.  I used Sunshine Creations tutorial, hence the name.  I have seen tutorials and directions for "proper" Cathedral Windows quilts and they make the amount of work that went into my "mock" one look paltry! 

Thank you everyone for all your kind comments.  My sister has now received the quilt and, by all reports, loved it.  My niece has so far reserved comment (but she's 10 months old, so I'll let that go).

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

First, let me just say that your quilt is BEAUTIFUL! It looks snuggly, warm, and like it will be a cherished family item.

Second, I'm curious about the fleece backing. Did you use filler (it's clear that i'm not a quilter) or did the fleece just work for both a filler and the backing?

Thanks!  I didn't use an extra in-between layer, just the fleece.  It ended up quite heavy as it was, I didn't want to overload it.

Great Quilt, i love it
was just going to ask this question too.
I am Brand brand brand new to quilting Grin
using a filler scares the heck outer me, i have a very old machine & dont think it will be ale to cope with all that material.
maybe fleece is the way to go,
subloke, was it easier to use the fleece?
