Celebrity crafter and designer Mandy Shaw shows you how to create a beautiful redwork embroidered quilt. Mandy, a regular presenter on Create & Craft TV, brings her distinctive design style to the traditional technique of redwork embroidery.
The quilt is made up of nine heart blocks each with a different motif. The hearts can be combined to create a gorgeous quilt but you can also choose from 20 simple sewn projects including a key holder, brooch and pin cushion.
Mandy brings a fresh, new approach to redwork embroidery with her own distinctive style and eye catching motifs including polar bears and honey bees.
