Monday Making


These are some of my blocks for this month's OMG project.  The cross stitch has to be at least 10 yrs old and the fabric borders added maybe 6 yrs ago.


When I laid them all out it was just too busy and made for a too large wallhanging.  So I removed the outer borders on each block and added skinny sashings (1" unfinished).  Now to select some of those removed borders to make a final scrappy border.  I have a backing pulled and will go with a black binding to frame it all off.

My goal was to at least get it into a flimsy, but I just might have a full finish with this one.

Linking Up with BETH @ Love, Laugh, Quilt

Sewingly Yours,

  5. Your quilt is really adorable.

    I have never worked with cross stitched items before. Will you be quilting just up to the stitches or will you be going over the stitching as well?

  9. I actually like your alternate plan a lot better. The skinny sashing was the perfect choice.
