Antique Redwork Quilt

Have you noticed how much I love redwork?  I can never get enough.  Isn't this one great? 

50" x 60"


  1. Very interesting blog. A lot of blogs I see these days don't really provide anything that attract others, but I'm most definitely interested in this one. Just thought that I would post and let you know.

  2. I am extremely impressed along with your writing abilities, Thanks for this great share.

  3. Hello Lynn,
    I also love redwork, especially children at play. There are still some places that sell the pre-printed squares for young children to learn embroidery, but it's usually the seller making them up herself with old transfer copies on pinked squares of percale (cut up white bed sheets). Where their Nana/Mom ended and the child started is always obvious, but I always praise how smart they are to make something soooo beautiful.
    A friend once teased that the thread had to red to hide the blood from their pricked fingers.... she's silly sometimes.
    Thank you for sharing and I hope you will be posting again very soon. Delia in RB
