    This was a kit, the cross is a stencil that you iron on, but I stitched all around it, then stippled the background. The back is black and really looks neat with the cross outlined. My daughter has it at her home, so I can't show the back.
    The little orange patch in the corner is a first place makeshift ribbon I won at the fair last year on the cross. We didn't use actual ribbons, but one of our quilters who has passed away made all of these up to be used as ribbons. I won second place on my son's quilt.

    I am going to try and add a couple of pictures of the two lap quilts that my guilde made for the babies of my young (22yr old) neighbor, who committed suicide a few weeks back. I watched the young man and his twin brother grow up in my neighborhood, from the time he was about 18 mos. old. He lived across the street from me. His wife gave us some of his t-shirts and a couple of his work shirts and we made the kids the lap quilts. The little boy is 3 and the little girl is 18 mos. This has really affected our neighborhood. We found out at the services, that his wife is expecting their 3rd child, that she had just found out about and not had a chance to tell him before he died.

    bakc of both lap quilts are flannel

    Yes the reversible quilt is by Pederson. It was not that hard, but I would recommend trying one of her easier patterns first. I did not. But then I usually tacke things that really appeal to me and not always go with the easiest thing. If you will follow the directions exactly as the books says you should not have any problem. Luckily when I made mine, one of our ladies in our quilting guilde was very helpful. This is the only type of quilt that she makes - reversible. She has made dozens of them, so having her around if I ran into a snag was a big help. The quilt size I made was a super queen size. I used all types of black designed fabric, and the same with the blue. All of the background on both sides is white.
    If you decide to make one and have a problem, let me know and maybe I can help you out.

    All your quilts are very nice. Good of you to make the lap quilts for the little kids. Suicide is such a selfish act, these little kids will be affected by it the rest of their lives, his wife also.

    I also have the cross in gold and have it set aside for future work. I loved doing this kit. My daughter collects crosses of all kinds, I try and give her a cross os some kind for B-days and Christmas. This was the first time for a wall hanging most are just to hand on the wall. I found a beautiful cross of resin chili peppers that I gave her and she has it in her kitchen.
