1891 Redwork Reproduction pattern produced by Hoopla Quilts.
Measuring approximately 70" square in total, each original embroidery is on a 8 1/2" finished block. The border motifs are embroidered on 5" wide strips. After piecing the 49 blocks to each other, the needleworker covered the seams with a version of the feather stitch. Sweet and appealing, any of the motifs could be used for different projects including shams, crib quilts, wallhangings, pillow cases, tea towels - even framed blocks to commemorate an event such as a wedding or birth!
In addition to the historical research, The Redwork Boxed Set includes iron-on transfer patterns for each block and border motif, close-up color pictures to enable a better view of the embroidery, graphics of the embroidery stitches used, instructions with fabric requirements, AND an adorable pair of vintage-inspired 4" scissors!! Not only is this an authentic reproduction of a very heartwarming quilt, but it also inspires a wonderment and curiosity as to what the original needleworker may have been hoping to impart!
