 The center of my jubilee quilt is appliqued! Now, to figure out what is next. This zig zag border is too big, so I have a plan B.  I'll use this border somewhere just not here.
 Scandinavian Christmas has been neglected for awhile. The applique is done, just two more sides of cross stitch. Until I took the photo I didn't notice how horrible the little cross stitch block looks! oh my!!
Hopefully I'll be back later in the week to show you the next test border on the Jubilee quilt!!

  1. Your Jubilee quilt center is gorgeous. Seriously, Lori! You amaze me, in your humble way.
    Scandinavian Christmas looks like a really cute piece. When did it have its beginnings?

  7. Beautiful block and so much small piecing, wonderful work. Looks like you have quite a few beautiful pieces going at once.

  8. It's very difficult to get even crosses stitched on a plain weave fabric. Perhaps you will consider using a waste canvas. It's a grided 'fabric' so that you can easily cross stitch and after you're done, you damp it with a wet cloth and pull out the weave.

  17. I can't imagine why your blog is entitled "Humble Quilts" when they are all so wonderful. BTW I adore Scandinavian Christmas, I am very fond of the little bird standing on the mushroom!
    Have a great week.

  21. The center of your Jubilee quilt is awesome! I am sure it will be another berauty when you are done.
    I like the Christmas project. It looks a bit primitive so I think the cross stitch will be just right!

  23. I love them both. Great idea to save that zigzag for later, but I wouldn't change a stitch on the Scandinavian Christmas.

  33. I love your cross stitch - I think it works really well with this project! But if you do want perfect squares then as said above waste canvas is the way to go ...
