I knew I was getting close to finishing this one but surprised myself by how close!
hand quilted & labelled..
with some vintage buttons added to the mix
& backed with polka dots (bonnie & camille’s bliss)
my redwork is complete :) & I am so so happy!
saying that though, I had to walk away from it about 6 inches from the end of the binding as I really didn’t want this project to be ticked off the list! I have loved every stitch. You can read about the journey here
Mum finished hers too (waaaaaay before me!)
some notes ::
a correspondence project between me & my mum spanning a couple of years.
red & white fabric blocks were swapped in letters so we each had the same prints.
we each made 40 embroidery blocks & swapped one
block size = 6″
my finished quilt measures approx 70″ x 70″
all embroideries were either traced or drawn. I used this method a lot too
It’s been a joy.
