Sunbonnet and Quilt Wall Hanging

My oldest daughter made two beautiful cross-stitch pictures for me.  One shows a back-to-school scene with a quilt, lunch pail, slate and books.  I placed this piece in a rustic wooden frame.

The second piece shows a quilt, and a sunbonnet on an old wooden chair.

I decided to make this into a  wall hanging, using a 3-½ inch Dresden Plate as the center and half Dresden plates along the edge.

The quilting is also done in a half-Dresden Plate design.

The finished hanging measures 18 x 23 inches.

It’s nice to have two new end-of-summer pieces to display.

  1. How sweet of your daughter to make the crosstitch for you. There is so much work in a piece like that. Unfortunately, I didn’t pass the “needle and thread” gene down to my daughter but I have an 11yr old grandaughter that I taught to knit and she taught herself to crochet. The needle passes on!

    1. I love it that your granddaughter has learned to knit and crochet. That’s quite an accomplishment for an 11-year-old. Lillian

  2. Your daughter does beautiful work…she takes after you!

    My Kelsey has learned to crochet and knit( i can’t do either of those) but right now she has no interest in sewing…maybe one day my grandchildren will!
