Snowflakes in August
No I haven't abandoned Jane - just slowing down a bit for the month of August :) I have a few little gifties & loose ends to finish up this month and a Redwork Embroidery quilt project to finish by Summer's End.
Our first grandchild is due in December! To celebrate our Winter Baby I've decided to make this darling Snowman Redwork quilt. You can find the pattern & finished quilt HERE.
Never the conformist - I've decided to make this with a vintage feel. The center blocks will be embroidered on similar tone solid fabrics of cream and natural cotton muslin. Instead of vibrant red thread I've chosen a varigated Valdani in Old Brick. I love the "fade-out" effect of this hand-dyed thread.
Well, I best get the old Needle moving.
Till next time.. May all your threads be strong & plentiful!
