    If I don't hurry I won't live long enough to make the quilt.
    I turned the titles around. The first is hand embroideried and the second is by machine. I love Redwork. Also here's pillow I hand embroidered for a special event.

    Well! Another 22 years and you should be able to bang out another 11 squares? Right?

    Love them all. I'm sure that little rascal dressed in the red tutu in your avatar needs at least one, too! She sure is a cutie!

    I love redwork too and yours is beautiful. But don't despair, I just won a blue ribbon on an applique quilt that took 10 years to complete! Some things just can't be rushed.

    The one I machine embroidered is hers. I keep it here as I made her 8 quilts before she was born.

    WOW 10 years and you won a blue ribbon. That's awesome. I've never had the nerve to enter any of my quilts
    Thanks every one for looking at my quilts.

    You better get crackin' granny! Your hand work is beautiful. What kind of thread do you use and how many strands? It looks perfect. Stunning workmanship.

    I use DMC, 2 strands except for the face and really tight areas.
    Thank you for you kind comments.
