Log cabin - Winter
COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY GRACEWOOD STITCHES
Kathy Bungard designer of Gracewood Stitches describes the pattern in her own words:
Log Cabin~Winter is the second in my cross stitch series of seasonal log cabin quilt block designs.
I chose blue and gold embroidery floss shades for this pattern, where we live those are the colors I most associate with winter. The cold blues of the snowy landscapes contrasted with the warm golds of firelight.
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 and cold color scheme. You'll enjoy stitching each intricate element of this ornamental piece that includes reindeers , ice cristal motifs and beautiful floral motifs. Check out the other season's patterns in the series (see below).
