|Log Cabin Cross 2|
I finished sewing the second Log Cabin Cross wall hanging, today. I learned from the "mistakes" of the previous wall hanging and added a border with the background fabric all around the central Cross, which makes it "float" better on the background. I also changed the design slightly and added another shading strip to the central Cross.
The back of the wall hanging is a single, large piece of fabric; cream colored with a pale pink all-over print. I have quilted it (sewing machine) very minimally - just an "in-the-ditch" outline quilting around the main center Cross.
The binding was machine sewn to the front, folded over, and hand sewn at the back.

This wall hanging, too, will be a Christmas gift for one of my friends.
Once again, the entire wall hanging was made using fabric, batting, and thread I had on hand. So, a very frugal gift. Some of you might recognize that the fabric used for the outer most areas of the central Cross and for the binding is same as what I used for one of my front opening nightdresses. I've plenty of leftovers from the other nightdresses I've sewn for additional wall hangings.
But, before I make any more wall hangings, I've a quilt to finish!
Anyone else have multiple crafts projects in progress?
