    Your quilt is so-so-so pretty! Thank you for the tips, too!

    Bonnyh - Do you do anything to keep the two pieces of cloth together? How do you keep it from puckering or shifting? I have this pattern to do and am pleased to see finished ones and suggestions on how to go about it.
    Thanks
    Nancy

    That is just gorgeous! Thanks for the hint and for sharing your beautiful quilt with us Bonnyh!

    Bon, good luck in finding the picture you are looking for. I am inspired by these two reed work quilts and I am looking forward to seeing more.

    Ta-Daaaaaa!!! I found the pattern. It is called "Holiday Redwork Pattern", and is available at Erica's or The Stitch Connection. Not sure, but they might be the same place.

    Thanks to all for trying to help me. Now I have the names of other redwork patterns for future use.
