Cathedral Windows Sew-a-long Schedule

Okay ya'll, tomorrow is day one of the Cathedral Windows Sew-a-long!! Who is ready for some fun?  I just love making Cathedral Windows and I hope that ya'll will too after this!  Don't be scared, they are easier than they look, I promise!  You can do it! I am so excited and I hope ya'll are too!
I will post a tutorial for a bunch of projects including a pillow, some pincushions, a pouch, plus more! The basic instructions for Cathedral Windows are all the same but with different size requirements.  The "windows" part are a great use for scraps you have been wanting to use! 
PLUS, later on this week, I will be announcing some huge PRIZES for everyone who participates in the Sew-a-long!  Just a little tease, Fat Quarter Shop and Fabricworm donated some fun stuff (more on that soon). 
In order to win prizes you must submit photos of Cathedral Windows projects either in my Flickr Group or link it back to the blog post of that project (which I will tell you how to do at the end of every tutorial blog post).
Here is a little schedule of how these couple of weeks are going to go:
Monday April 2nd: Basics of Cathedral Windows Step by Step Tutorial (these basic instructions will be used for every tutorial, each tutorial will have different size requirements listed) Prizes announced today as well!
