    That is beautiful. I just watched the E Burns utube video.......looks almost like I would like to try to do a small one. Has anyone worked w/that fusible interfacing? Does it make the piece bulky? I think I will go to EB website and see if she has a book on this. I think JoAnn's sells that gridded interfacing......do I dare pursue this????? or will it be another ufo??????

    Wow that is just gorgeous. I've X stitched for yrs and never thought of that but would love to try it. How long did it take you to do? I have some Thomas Kincade patterns for x stitch that would be so beautiful done like that. Great job and I think a lot of patience. Sue

    Wow! That is absolutely stunning work! Sewing together every little piece would have been nothing short of a labour of love. Is the white background pieced as well? Fantastic! Well done and thank you for sharing.

    Brilliant and stunning. At one time all I ever did was x stitch. This is fabulous. You may have started a trend here!

    I am speechless! What a magnificent job you did! I've thought about doing this a couple of times and just couldn't wrap my brain around it! You said that each block of the cross stitch was 1/2". Did you start with 1" squares and they finished at 1/2" or did you start with 1/2" and finish at 1/4"?

    The interfacing doesn't make the quilt bulky, but it does have more "body". You don't notice it by the time it's sandwiched and quilted. Like already said, the hardest part is keeping track of what piece goes where.

    Nanasewso, your floral wallhanging is absolutely gorgeous. And maybe a tad too inspiring!

    I tried cross stitching years ago but it always caused my eyes to cross! haha I don't know what they would do if I attempted this. I admire your creativity.
