Redwork Quilt..

An oldie, but a favourite!

I put this quilt together a few years ago now, but it's still a favourite...there's just something about redwork that is so appealing.
I bought the red toile fabric on sale, it was such a great buy I just had to have it!
It was in the cupboard for quite some time not knowing what to do with it, and then in a moment of inspiration this is what became of it...

Crinoline ladies in redwork framed in the red toile fabric was a perfect choice...

Until next time...♥

  2. I too love redwork, Julia. What a treasure you've created and what a super idea of using the red toile as your background setting! I stitched a pair of pillowcases with redwork embroidery for my best girlfriend as her Christmas gift and she loved them. Admittedly, it was a little difficult to part with them. (smile) I have started an "Inspiration" list, and your quilt idea MUST be added. Great job!
