Redwork Quilt Finished!

I wanted to post some closed up shots of the finished Redwork quilt.  I am very happy with how this turned out!

This block used the Zig-Zag border from the Ultimate Borders collection to create this background.

I used the triangles/diamonds (The Ultimate Backgrounds) for the background and then added cathedral window arches and scribbling.  

Baby Clamshells were added for this backgrounds.  Again from the Ultimate Backgrounds collection.

1/4" grid was run evenly thru five blocks to tie these all together.

Triple lines and Basket Weave (The Ultimate Backgrounds) were used for fillers on these two blocks.

These are just some of the highlights from this fun quilt.  I LOVED being able to use all of the backgrounds from this collection.

  • I’m working on some embroidered blocks and this gives me ideas of how to make it more special. Back in the late 90s my parents came to visit while I was residing in Texas. My father made a squirrel feeder in a cluster of trees off the porch so they could watch them while swinging in the porch swing. Time went on and one of my sons wanted to write grandma a letter, so I set him up with an envelope and stamp. I didn’t read the letter. When mom was around 80ish she handed me a sheet that was embroidered with squirrels and said, “Here, make Travis a quilt.” After she past away I was going through her things and I found my sons letter. He said, “I saw a squirrel today and thought of you.” I also found the pattern and the receipt that was dated right after she received the letter. So the last few days I have been doing faux trapunto behind her embroidery and using your various Ultimate Background Stencils on the blocks will make this quilt a very special treasure. Thank you Cindy
