Insanely Huge Cross Stitch

Postby Kareesh » Mon Aug 11, 2014 10:36 am

Oh my goodness. So, this may be old news, but I just read about it today. Possibly the world's largest cross stitch right over here.

I just wanna stitch one black x somewhere in there to say, yeah, I helped make that..... :grin:

but....then again......We have a LOT of people on the site. So if we could get a lot of them to stitch a big enough part. Maybe 100x100, we could make the biggest...... Im up for it.

Very cool.
Now we need to learn how they pieced it together. It would solve some of our problems when it comes to measuring out fabric :D

I think the best way to do it would be for one person to get and divide a single piece. Or at least all from the same bolt. Then you'd all at least be working from the same base.

Rather impressive, I have to say. Glad I didn't have to do it.

Wouldn't it be amazing if Sprite Stitch held the record?

I'm sure you just overlap the pieces and stitch through both bits or something like that...
