Past Projects Quilt and Cross Stitch

So I thought I would share some of my older projects.
Quilt #1 – My first attempt. I just picked some fabrics out and gave it a go. It was bound with sage green and has a royal blue back which has a slight pattern to it and is actually the darker blue square to Quilt #2.

Then I have some Cross Stitches I have done in the past. The 1st one I did was the Christmas Queen it was more difficult than I had anticipated. There are metallic threads, beads, Fluffy threads, as well as being my first cross stitch in about 13 years (I am 26) So it gives you some idea.

The second, I picked a simple pattern of a mom and baby that I could maybe use as a gift or keep.
The third, the two girls by the tree is another fun one. It was a gift for my mother; she picked it out to be a pillow for her bedroom. It was beads, dyed silk. It was a very fun one to do and not too hard.

Quilt #2

A few months ago I made my first quilt. It was a simple block square quilt. SO for #2 I decided to go a bit more complicated and more fun color wise. So I designed these rainbow 9 square blocks with a cream boarder that will be the width of each little square.

This picture shows a small sample of the backing I think I will use. The border will be a chocolate brown I think. Either a rich brown or a dark brown. I have not decided yet. This looks good so far the hard part will be the next which is making sure that I square each block as I attach the cream strips on the sides to make a row.
