Roses & Redwork Quilt...Oldie but still beautiful !

The first blooms of my roses for this spring...so pretty, wish I could remember what these roses are called. They are a pretty mauve / pink...I have had them for about twelve years, they have the most beautiful perfume. They say, you can't kill roses, just as well, as I don't a very green thumb!...
I love red work...the above red work crinoline lady is a favourite.I put this quilt together from red work blocks set on point and finished off with this lovely red toile fabric...I think the need to do a little bit more red work embroidery is calling me!
Off to my Tuesday P/work group tomorrow.
Hope you have a lovely day and time for a bit of stitching.....♥

  8. Your roses comes out earlier than ours. Ours are just buddings at the moment. The weather has been very wet and cold and I can't imagine seeing the roses anytime soon. I love red work too. Yours are lovely - Hugs Natima

  11. Your redwork belle is oh so sweet! I found a site with several belle's for embroidery such as pillowcases and they are free. I was thinking they would make up so pretty in redwork and combined into a quilt.

  20. Dearest Julia - have you ever used 12 wt Sulky cotton (on a spool) for Redwork? I use the Barberry Red as that is comparable to the DMC red color that is normally used. Someone recently told me to try the varigated red Sulky in 12 wt for an altogether different Redwork look. I do truly love Redwork and plan to try it. Judy C in NC

  22. I'm sure you remember my fascination with Crinoline Ladies! I think I might have that pattern somewhere - it does come up well in Redwork doesn't it?
