    I think that's a great idea. I have several pieces that I cross-stitched myself several years ago. They're a series of animals that I had intended to frame in groups of 3 (12 altogether). Now I'm thinking...maybe I could get them out of the closet and put them into a wall-quilt.

    Nice idea...thanks!! :D

    JNCT14, be sure to show your table topper when you finish it! I have a feeling it will be gorgeous.

    DJ beautiful ideas and work.

    I would worry about washing them, so wallhangins would be the way to go, maybe put a fusible backing on those squares to bond the threads from the stitches.

    I have just started a cross-stitched quilt. I am not using previously cross stitched blocks. I am using waste cloth to stitch my patterns on cotton, then will incorporate my blocks into a quilt.

    You completed those "blocks" as a labor of love. I wouldn't want to see them "gotten rid of." If framed, and you don't want them, perhaps they could be donated to a nursing home to brighten the room of a resident.... or if more appropriate... to a shelter for children/families.

    Will be looking forward to answers as to how this quilt might hold up. :-)

    When my youngest son was in seminary, I xstitched 12 blocks. Since he was single, I used a variety of greens for the rest of the blocks. I paid someone to do the quilting for me. It turned out gorgeous.

    What beautiful cross stitch. It made a great quilt. Love it.

    I have never used anything but aida clth to do cross stitich. Do you have to use a printed pattern to do it on a regular cotton quilting material? Do you have to buy patterns or can you draft your own and if so, how?

    The quilt I posted the cross stitch is done on aida. You just put the quilt together just like any other quilt.

    I've got a bunch of cross stitched pictures I made and collected over the years.

    Trying to decide what to do with them...options include, putting them in a quilt, framing them for a child's room, or getting rid of them.
    The center of this quilt was cross-stitched onto a cotton fabric with the tear-away cloth for counted cross-stitch. It washed up very nicely.
