REDWORK

Yesterday I started on a redwork quilt...been wanting to make one for years.  






I'm making the centers of the friendship star block the redwork...these are machine embroidered redwork designs.  I have over 2 dozen designs-all children-so there's lots to choose from.



Not sure yet how big this quilt will be...I'll probably do straight line quilting, so I can make a larger quilt if I want...will wait and see.  I'm not too in love with making the stars and the small ??? Irish Chain ??? blocks.

CLICK ON THE PICTURES TWICE TO ENLARGE

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!


PS....SOMEHOW I'VE LOST MY FAVORITES...SOMETIMES THEY COME UP, BUT MOSTLY THEY DON'T.  A WHILE AGO I LOST MY COUNTER...????
STRANGE ISN"T IT !!

  3. I love the redwork centers in the star blocks. I have some redwork snowmen designs from Charming Station that I have thought about using in a quilt. Your blocks really make me want to get it started.
