Block of the Month Series: Words to Live By Quilt Pattern!

I am a huge fan of Redwork Embroidery.  Redwork embroidery is a simple technique, worked in a single shade of thread.  Back in the 1800s when it was first popular, red was the only dye that was colorfast.  When dying processes improved, other colors came into use, but the look of redwork has always remained a favorite.

Because the design is outlined with very little filled areas, redwork is quick and easy to complete. And it is the centerpiece for my new Free Quilt Pattern- Words to Live By.


This pattern will be offered for free to all Subscribers to Suzy’s Sitcom for the next 12 months!  A new block will come out around the 15th of each month featuring a new “word to live by”.  The final block instructions will also include details for layout, and finishing instructions for several different size quilts.

All subscribers will receive the new pattern each month in your email!

    It’s so much fun to get your craft projects and I have made a few of them. Just wondering if you have pictures of the Redwork Quilt finished so I could see the finished project. I want to put this on my list for projects this year.
    Thanks in advance…Beverly

      Hi Beverly!

      I do not have photos of the finished quilt yet as I am designing it as we go. On this particular project, I am about a month ahead. At the end of the year, I will offer a complete pattern set of all 12 patterns along with finishing details. As soon as I get to the point where I have the entire quilt put together, I will definitely post photos.
