    Absolutly adorable! I love redwork. Did you do it by hand or on a machine? I'm doing a Christmas rework by hand. Eight squares done, 12 to go. Actually it is going faster than I thought it would. But then I am keeping the stitches really simple. As soon as I can get the software for my embroidery machine I am going to do one with it.

    Great work! I have redwork bears to sash together for a quilt. No one to give it to at this point. Just like to embroidery when I grow tired of piecing quilt blocks. :)

    It's machine embroidered, quilted on my Tin Lizzie. The white (embroidered) squares are cut 8.5inches, the sashing is cut 3.5 inches, the border (white on white) is cut 6 inches. I made a double bed size like this with 10.5 inch white embroidered squares and 4 inch sashing. the larger quilt had larger embroidery designs. They go together quickly and the redwork is easy because it's all one color.
    I seem to like the simple stuff.

    Thanks for the measurements -- I too like the simple stuff :D :D I purchased some of these designs last week and was wondering how big to make the finished blocks...

    Simple is great as far as I'm concerned. I can't wait to get my software. My lqs has done some beautiful stuff, but I do love redwork!

    How cute! I've always loved redwork. The embroidery is by your machine? You said you made it in a day. If I hand embroidered those cute designs it would take me eons! The designs are very charming.

    Chele, I know what you mean about doing it by hand. I've been working on my blocks for 3 weeks and have 8 done. Oh well, it keeps me off the streets and out of the bars at night :lol:

    I have to say how much I admire hand embroidery! I can't do it (arthritus) so the best I can do is by machine. I feel lucky to have my embroidery machine, it has the advantage of being fast but is not hand done. It's like machine VS hand quilting, I couldn't hand quilt either. Technolegy makes so many things possible.
