The last bit of redwork

This week I finished the last two embroidery designs that I traced from Gail Pan's Christmas Patchwork Loves Embroidery



I decided to set them together, using the scraps from the pillow I made for my mom earlier this month.


A little bit of quilting, both by hand and machine, holds the layers together.


This afternoon I'll be hand-stitching the binding down.


These redwork embroidery projects have been such an enjoyable way to do some slow stitching every evening during the holiday season!  I'm really glad I found Gail Pan's book!

Wishing everyone a wonderful Christmas holiday!

I just love the redwork you've done, and that is a really pretty hanging. Glad you had some fabric left over from your Mom's pillow! That running stitch around the edges really sets it off.

Your redwork is spectacular! I know your Mom will love this! Well done! Hugs, Mickie

You really found some good patterns to get started with red work. Did you use muslin for the background-maybe you said before and I don't remember. I just love this piece!

I love the red work I don't know why I rarely do any as I really like them. I should get some patterns to do up Christmas pillows

It has been so much fun seeing your embroidery pieces come together! They are gorgeous and I just love the simplicity of the red & white!

Your Redwork pieces came out lovely, Gail Pan's designs are so sweet and simply look wonderful as a wall hanging.

Very cute! I hope to try some red work (or blue!) in the new year. Love how your little holiday quilt came out.
