Redwork

Posted by Picasa
I'm really enjoying the Bunnyhill basket BOM done in redwork. When I first saw the applique version I was very excited and finished the first applique block in a couple of days. And then Darlene showed her version done in redwork, I was hooked...Thanks Darlene for sharing your version....I love stitching and redwork is so relaxing. The applique is not going to happen, I have one block that will be a pillow or something.

I hope you had a good National Quilting Day, I spent the day working but I'll make up for it soon.

Like you Wendy I did the first applique block and then stalled so I may do this sort of thing instead - maybe in blues I'm thinking !

Catherine said...

I love your blocks! I was thinking of doing them in redwork too -- and seeing these convinces me!

YOur red work is beautiful.

Quilt Hollow said...

Yep....I'm not going to get them done in applique either from the looks of things and other projects. I do like them in redwork and remembered seeing Darlene's post on that...dang that girl is Speedy!

Sherri said...

Lisa said...

I do like it in the redwork version too. Yes, I think stitching can be very relaxing.

Karen said...

The baskets look wonderful in redwork Wendy. I am appliqueing mine, but think I will also do it in redwork. But not until I finish it in applique! :) Also, love how you did the row of 'X's' along the tops of the baskets. Very nice.

Nice work, Wendy. Everyone of us should have a project like this because it does melt tension besides producing something lovely!

Judy H. said...

Your stitching is lovely! I'm sticking with the applique version, as I really enjoy both types of work, but the more I see the redwork, the more I think I might end up with two of these quilts eventually!

Very cute!

Thimbleanna said...

They're SOOOO pretty Wendy!

Cathi said...

Since my sewing room is packed away, the redwork seems like it would be easy to pull together. I might have to think on this one some more.

Quilts And Pieces said...

Oh it looks wonderful! I love the redwork ones too, but I want to stay away as I decided if I"m going to do redwork I need to work on Winer Wonderland!

Carrie P. said...

Oh, they are so sweet.

Darlene said...

Love 'em!

Judy S. said...

I don't know, Wendy, you've about convinced me to do the redwork version....sure haven't started the applique ones, and I do LOVE redwork. Yours look great!

Wendy K said...

I was hesitant to start the applique Bunny Hill BOM but seeing your redwork ones , soooo yummy and scrummmy! I think I may just have to give them a go. Thankyou for the inspiration!!

Melody said...

Your blocks look fabulous. I am doing mine in redwork too!

Becky said...

Love how your blocks are turning out. I'm plodding through my blocks. Still need to prep. February and March. I'm hoping to do that this weekend.

Take care!

Knot Garden said...

They are so pretty. I always love your redwork projects.

Michelle said...

Your blocks are beautiful. I'm saving the patterns, but haven't started them just yet. I think I'm going to "copy" and do the embroidery in just one color (maybe red, maybe another color.) Thanks for sharing! :)

Sweet P said...

The bunnies are adorable in redwork. I have too many projects going right now to make them but I enjoy looking at everyone else's
