Log cabin - Spring
COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY GRACEWOOD STITCHES
Kathy Bungard designer of Gracewood Stitches describes the pattern in her own words:
Log Cabin~Spring is the third pattern in my log cabin quilt, four seasons series.
Here in the mountain forests spring comes in soft shades of greens and yellows. A time of renewal
after long winter days, new sprouts emerge from the soil and primrose paths begin to bloom.
About the Log cabin series:
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?
I began playing with this 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.
Creative Poppy says:
We love the original "log cabin" layout of these borders as well as the contrast between the warm gold and soft green color scheme. This piece has a definite Art Deco feel and we love the white flowers on the green background as well as the much freer treatment of the flower and dragonfly border.
