Red Work Sampler

This fabulous Red Work sampler was made my Trish.

This is Trish's first foray into embroidery, as she wanted a project to take with her on a 5 month RV trips touring the East Coast.  She finished the quilt top when she returned home.

We opted for a small bit of curved crosshatching over the red work as the circles were about 7" and would have been saggy and baggy without some stitching.  I used 100 wt Inivisfil thread and it really doesn't take away from the hand stitching.

I didn't to any stitch in the ditch in the sashings, and I love the effect on the back of the quilt.

It was a lot of fun helping to finish this quilt that is sure to hold special memories of a wonderful holiday.
