    Oh my gosh, that is stunning! Did you use an embroidery machine or do it by hand? If machine, what kind, seems large for that? I just love it.

    That is beautiful. I love redwork and need to do more. I love the sashing fabric, too.

    Oh! man, your pillow is gorgeous! I love red work and I use to love to embroider but arthritis kinda prevents me from doing any kind of handwork but I sure do appreciate seeing what others do. Nice job.

    JudyJo,

    Thanks so much for sharing the pictures of your beautiful Cathedral Window ornaments. Think I might start making some of those for next year.
    I have been trying to satisfy my need for "instant gratification" by making mini quilt wall hangings for my grandson's first holidays. I did a Pumpkin Patch for Halloween, a Pilgrim Turkey for Thanksgiving and of course Santa for Christmas. I'm hoping that each holiday in the future, will find one of my creations hanging up for him to enjoy year after year. I plan to continue doing a mini for each month of his first year.
    During the holidays it's been too busy for me to work on large quilts so I do my mini's and lots of applique work. I'm saving the bigger quilts for after the holiday season is over.

    Ty, what a wonderful idea. Please post some pictures, as many of us are always looking for inspiration. The idea of making a mini quilt for each month for your grandson is just that sort of inspiration.

    I would also like to welcome you to the forum and thank you for posting. As you read, you will discover many great ideas and techniques posted by some very clever and sharing folks. You are a great addition to this group. Welcome to the family. :D

    Hi Ty....your idea of the mini quilts sounds great! Please post some pictures. I have made 5 full size quilts. Although I enjoy doing them they take me a long while (because I'm constantly working on other projects as well). Also since we retired and moved to a much smaller house my sewing area is very small. I'm looking at doing smaller projects. I would love to see some of the things you have done.

    Hi Gals,
    I have just read through all the comments and pictures and am absolutely flabergasted at all the talent out there. You all are to be commended with your work. How wonderful, and I must say I am so, so glad that I am on this quiltingboard. Even if I don't "chime in" much, I do enjoy reading everyone's reply. Hopefully, after the holidays I will begin my quilting again. I certainly have picked up some marvelous ideas already for making two future quilts!
    Keep up the good work, and Boo, thanks for being such a good moderator for this group.

    Well, JudyJo, you've done it again. I've never really liked red work until I saw your pillow. The red sashing sets it off so well. Turned it into a work of art instead of just some embroidery. I made the Cathedral Window ornament, and now I have to make a redwork pillow. You've inspired me again!! :D

    Thanks Norah! Glad I inspired you. I've seen quite a few red work or blue work quilts at the county fair the last couple of years. They are really beautiful! I'm working on a redwork wall hanging (actually it's a bright pink) of sea shells for my bathroom. It will be done the same with the sashing, etc. I enjoy doing embroidery. It's nice to be able to combine it with the quilting. How did your CW ornament come out?
