I have a palm tree pattern that I downloaded free from Patterns2Go, and have been trying to decide how to use it to show off the beauty of it.
The pattern is a counted cross stitch pattern, however because I’m convinced that those of us who sew and do crafts ALSO do other things, such as quilting, counted cross stitch, plastic canvas items, etc, I want to talk about my palm tree today.
At Patterns2Go, the thread colors are available to print as well as the pattern, so now I’ve decided to do a palm tree quilt. I’ve decided to do squares of white, light green and tan, then do the palm tree on aida cloth squares and do perhaps 5 or 7 squares of the palm tree to put among the colored squares. Think I’ll then use the darker green for a border and white on the back.
This pattern would make a very pretty picture to frame and hang, or to use in a wall hanging as well.
Check out the pattern – this could be made for a gift for somebody special or just to hang on YOUR wall!!
