    Quilted Cross Stitch

    I made this for a silent auction at our guild show in May. Spent a lot of time trying to find the right fabric for the frame.

    That came out beautiful. I also do counted cross stitch.

    That is stunning!! How did you add the border to the edges of the Ada fabric? I've done some great pieces, I'd love to incorporate them into a quilt.

    I don't trim the Aida fabric. I draw a line a quarter inch from where I want the border to be. Lay the border fabric face down and sew my quarter inch seam. If I want mitered borders, I sew the border pieces together leaving a 1/4" unsewn on the inner seam. Then I press in under and machine applique the border on.
    I have found that if I trim the Aida fabric, it tends to fray and pull out of the seam. I usually 2-4 inches of extra on each side. Once I quilt it, it won't pull out.

    That is just beautiful! Wow, that's alot of work to donate for your siletn auction. There are a lot of hours put into counted cross stitch but the end result is just too cool.

    That is really pretty. Do you have the name of the cross stitch pattern? I also do cross stitch and my Mom would love that!

    That is gorgeous. So impressed with those who do counted cross stitch... I have tried and realize that I just cant count! Love the fabric you picked.

    How beautiful. I love it.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
