I was inspired by a cross that I saw at the RLDS building several years ago. It was a large wooden cross made up of tons of different wood from all over the world. It was very pretty. So this is what I came up with.
This was my original design that I thought about but when I was finished with, it didn't look exactly how I remembered the RLDS cross looked. So I tried again...
Here we go, this is what I remembered. Although my measurements were thrown off and so I had to add more to the sides. So these are my blocks...
(I finished these at night and so there was no sunlight...but I wanted to let Rene see them asap)
So using the fabric that Rene sent...here is what I made
She wanted two blocks so I just doubled the order
The color is really bad, but they turned out very pretty to me
Here is a close up of the cross so you could see the different size strips. It did take quite some time, but I think well worth it in the end. Although looking at it it's not 100% alligned, so on the spur of the moment they can become wonky crosses! :D
