Have fun with redwork embroidery!
Combine simple embroidery stitches and red embroidery floss; add a little piecing and you'll have projects that make perfect gifts for the contemporary or the traditional home. Projects include a pillow with a matching over-the-door wall quilt, table runner with matching place mats, a small floral bouquet wall quilt, a sampler quilt and seven antique seed packet designs to place on towels. Instructions for seven projects as well as basic redwork embroidery instructions are included, making these projects easy enough for a beginner and perfect for a seasoned quilter who needs a refresher course in embroidery work. These original redwork designs are so versatile. They can be used in any combination on the included projects or they can be added to your favorite quilt design by replacing a pieced block with a redwork block. There's no better way to relax than to spend an hour or so stitching redwork designs by hand. You'll think you are in quilt heaven!
