Many years ago, my mom passed along some of her cross stitch pieces to me. She had never framed them and didn't think she would ever invest in finishing them. I pulled them out the other day and decided that now is the time to finish them.
I'm planning a wall hanging that pairs each season with a complementary quilt block.
I enjoy paper piecing and haven't done any in a while so I pulled out a Carol Doak book, 50 Fabulous Paper Pieced Stars.
Each cross-stitch block is about 6" x 10". I'll downsize the stars to be six-inch blocks.
I decided that soft batiks would be a nice complement and make pretty stars.
This may become my mom's Christmas gift.
We'll see how much progress I make in the next week or two.
