Patchwork of the Crosses
I am still totally in love with Patchwork of the Crosses! This block is for my May (yes I am running behind) Bee mate, Ann Caldicott, in Australia! She chose Purples and greens.There are several options for fussy cutting. I decided to put the flowers in the center instead of making a "square" block. I used Aurifil 50 wt color #'s 2520 and 2886. I just LOVE how the 50wt melts right into the seams.
There have been several requests for kits so I may be adding this one to my ETSY shop.
And yes, I finally made ME a new ring pincushion. My little orange one was getting rather rough around the edges (and a little grungy) after almost 3 years of hand sewing and 2 summers in the hay fields :)!
I'll keep this old one just for using at the barn and in the hay fields.
Tomorrow I have dental surgery :(. Wish me luck!
Have a great day stitching yall!
Thank you for stopping by!
