The "Spanish Cross" wall hanging has three hand embroidered crosses set in Attic Windows. I chose shades of brown and tan for this project because those colors remind me of ancient carvings in stone.
I worked on the embroidery on the cross blocks at night while watching TV...seemed like for weeks! Then the idea to use Attic Windows blocks came to me. I was picturing crosses carved into the stones of Spanish missions. The swirls on the background and border fabrics seemed to suggest the carvings of Spanish architecture or Spanish missions here in Texas.
In future posts, I will feature some other quilts that I will have in this show.
