    Has anyone ever used cross-stitching on a quilt square? If so, how did it turn out? Pictures would be fantastic!!!!

    I have several ladies who cross stitch on blocks and send them to me to sash and quilt for Project Linus. I can't to pictures yet but give me a few days. I am learning.LOL. They come out beautifully. We put bright sashing and borders on to bring out the colors. Send me your email and I will try tomorrow to send you a picture of a couple of them. Thank you.

    That would be great! The reason I ask is because I am wanting to do a project for my boss (we are very close) and I can't decide if I want to cross-stitch or embroider it for her . . .

    the first quilt I ever made was a stamped cross stitch pattern. I thought I would never get it done! 45 years ago you could buy kits like that, usually three panels, an allover design. I've also done embroidery on 12 inch squares with a stamped pattern, and I have one now that my mom embroidered on stamped 12 inch squares and set together before she died in 1972. If I can find someone to machine quilt for me, it is ready to go. If I had an embroidery machine, I would probably use it a lot for quilts as hand work is very difficult for me now, and you can buy such pretty patterns for those machines. The quilts I have were also stamped with the quilting pattern, and were handquilted.

    Look back at the threads of antique quilts. Someone posted several on here that were both cross stitched and embroidered. They were beautiful. Have fun!

    I have a Janome machine that does embroidery and I remember using an embroidery card in class one time that does cross stitch, but I don't own that card. That's as much cross stitch as I'll ever do. I truly appreciate its beauty, but can't sit still long enough to do it myself! :lol:

    I don't remember the project we did. When I got my machine, I took as many classes as I could to learn how to use the features on the machine and that was one of them. I have no idea where that project is today, but this thread is making me want to get the memory card that does cross stitching, because I think it would be beautiful in a quilt square! :D

    When my gs was born, my daughter's on-line cross stitch group stitched baby animals for her. I then put them into a quilt for him.

    I made the quilt you see on the left and it's all cross stitchd. They are victorian shops and of course there's a quilting shop and a needle work shop. There are a number of places that are from the town that my husband grew up in. All the pictures are actual places and we designed them all.
