Have you been following my Words to Live By Quilt Block of the Month? We are finally coming to the final stage of this heirloom quilt pattern which features redwork embroidery, and simple piecing. I have been releasing to all Sitcom Subscribers a new block each month since January 2017. And now the pattern is complete!
I have had so much fun creating this project and want you to know that 2018 will be a year of many new free patterns and blocks of the month projects! There are lots of things on the horizon!
As they come in, I will be sharing photos of readers’ finished projects. Be sure to page to the bottom of this post to see them!
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 this quilt- Words to Live By.
Words to Live By Quilt Pattern was featured as the Block of the Month for 2017 and many have been following the progress all year long! The finished size is 44″ x 56″
The full 21 page digital pattern is now available free exclusively to Sitcom Subscribers until January 31, 2018!
This 21 page complete pattern series digital file includes all 12 Words to Live By full sized embroidery patterns, fully illustrated block instructions, fabric and embroidery requirements, borders and finishing instructions.
