Finally!


I know this is no way to run a blog! I got myself bogged down trying to get a good picture of the redwork quilt. It was difficult to photograph because it is HUGE (just about bed-sized). I ended up draping it over the fence. Because it is white, it was hard to photograph without it washing out. Anyway...TA DA! It's hand-embroidered, hand quilted and just how I wanted it to turn out.

Diane,

This was well worth the wait. It is WONDERFUL! The embroidered blocks look great combined with the red checkered pattern. I love the way you created the border. In looking at the close-up photos of the blocks, I had noticed the nice quilting. I had no idea you hand quilted all the lines! WOW. This was definitely a labor of love. Thank you for sharing one of your MANY talents with us.

Hugs,
Terri

This will definitely be a wonderful family heirloom. You did a marvelous job with all that hand work. How long did it take start to finish? On my computer screen it looks brown, is it bright red?
Lovely!!!!
