 Redwork BOM Quilt


Stitch a Redwork BOM Quilt this year! Redwork is the term used when working a pattern in basic embroidery stitches worked using red thread. It’s normally worked on white or natural-colored fabrics, and is usually finished as a quilt.

This pattern originally appeared in my book, Easy Heirloom Embroidery, which is now out of print. However, the pattern featuring different bouquet of flowers for each month is just as timely now as it was 10 years ago when the book made its debut, so I’ll share it with you here on the NeedleKnowledge site as a freebie!

 Framed Fabric Flowers

Fabric Flowers in a Frame

Looking for something crafty to make for Spring or Summer? Put together these pretty Fabric Flowers in a Frame.

This project can help you use up an assortment of crafty odds and ends.

Use leftover scraps of quilting fabrics and half-used bottles of acrylic craft paint, and raid your stash for buttons to be used as the flower centers.

You can get as creative as you want while painting the frame and pots. Add stripes and polka dots, or paint them solid colors – the choice is yours!
