    Default Purple Cross Wall Hanging



    This is a cross wall hanging for my aunt who is a minister and chaplain. She married my wife and I seven years ago this Monday. It is 4 log cabin blocks (two of them stretched and each set mirrored) and while it isn't perfect, it is pretty good considering I didn't even unroll the fat-eight bundle I used for the purples until my 6 month old son went down for his nap and I finished the entire top (cutting, piecing, and pressing) all by myself before he woke up.

    I didn't invent this design but I just made up the exact sizing as I went. Strips were cut at 1.5" making them ≈1" finished and the purples were cut from a fat-eights bundle from Joann's.
    Loosely based on a true story.

    As it is in the picture ≈14.5" by ≈23.5" It still needs to be sandwiched/quilted/bound so that may change slightly.

    This turned out so nice. I am a big fan of purple. As a purple cross it is majestic and reverent at the same time. Love it. This is such a thoughtful gift for a minister.
