|Log Cabin Cross Wall Hanging|
Tut, tut! I haven't finished turning the Single Irish Chain quilt top I sewed into a quilt, and here I am, started on a new sewing project!
But I saw pictures of a cross based on the Log Cabin block when I was looking at quilt patterns on-line and I thought it would make a good Christmas gift for some of my Christian friends and family (my mother's side of the family are mostly Catholic). The monthly prayer group I attend is actually a Rosary prayer group and my friend who leads the prayers will appreciate a wall hanging in this pattern. I looked at the pictures and came up with an adaptation of what I saw. I have to add a border, and make it up into a wall hanging.
It was sewn with fabrics in my scrap stash. Some strips had to be pieced to make the correct length. So, this is sort of the prototype, I guess; the sample. I made a mistake, at one point, and forgot to make mirror images of the Log Cabin blocks - so I have a spare Log Cabin block! Maybe I can make it up into a "mug rug" as a gift for someone else!
Today, I am grateful for:
- The holiday.
- Having the day to sew.
- Making gifts with material I have on hand.
- Cousins and friends calling to check on me.
- A special blessing ceremony at the temple with prayers for good health.
Did you do something special to enjoy the Labor Day holiday, today?
