Band samplers are iconic in cross stitch history and still popular subjects for today's patterns and I admit I certainly love them as much as the next stitcher. But I've wondered what would the effect be if the standard band took a new shape? Might it give the image some new interest?
I began playing with the next design and 'bent' the bands to make what is essentially a log cabin quilt pattern. I've wanted to design a series of seasonal patterns that could be done individually or grouped together and so I'm happy to introduce the first in the series, "Log Cabin - Autumn".
I'll post specific info on size and colors soon.
Here is a photo of the stitched "Poppies".
