I was wondering the same thing I have a lot of cross-stitches that I have made and some of them would make it a pretty quilt or pillow, is it posible to do so?

I agree with Gerbie, they use regular embroidery in quilts so why not cross stitch, as both use the same thread.

I also do cross stitch and have for years. I like the 16 count aida cloth the best. I love the way the shade of one color blend so nicely. Am working on a baby announcement at this time and also have another one half finished. I am thinking of maybe using quilting as a frame for the second one I am doing.

Beautiful work! I love your framing. I love to cross stitch also. My largest piece was a clown laying on his side - he ended up being 36 inches long. I made it as a gift for my aunt and she loved it. Please show some more of your wonderful work.

Absolutely gorgeous. I did cross stitch years ago, but never anything anything as complicated as these.

Gorgeous !! I used to be an avid x-stitcher too but then developed carpal tunnel... but I still crank out little ones from time to time. Those look like Lavender& Lace patterns ... are they. Love L&L .....
