|Log Cabin Cross Wall Hanging|
I finished the Log Cabin Cross wall hanging, today! After I added the dark blue border, I realized that I probably should have added another white strip along the two sides to separate the arms of the cross from the blue border. But I didn't feel like unpicking and resewing, so, this one will stay as it is. I will make changes to others I plan to make.
|Wall Hanging Back|
The back is a piece of pale grey and white fabric, which I had in the scrap stash. It's not noticeable in the photo, but I sewed a "sleeve" or "pocket" like thing at the very top of the back, using a strip of the same fabric. A dowel or rod can be slipped through this "sleeve" for purposes of hanging the wall hanging.
I used a piece of the polyester batting I have on hand to sandwich the wall hanging, and sewed around the inner cross and around the border to form a sort of "outline" quilting (and to hold the batting in place).
I am quite pleased with how it turned out. This was a very frugal gift because I used fabric in my stash and used what I had on hand. I didn't have to purchase anything. And it used up several of the bigger pieces of fabric I had in the stash, so it reduced the stash, just a bit, as well. :)
Off to cut out the pieces for the next wall hanging.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Phone calls from family and friends
- Being able to sew
- Finishing a project
- Making Christmas gifts with items from the stash
- Video chatting with daughter
Hope you are having a lovely weekend.
