About me...
I love to drink tea and sew.

About my square...
I made a mini redwork quilt for my block using tiny scraps of red and white fabrics which I pieced together by machine and then embroidered little sewing notions on to a few random squares by hand using 2 strands (occasionally just 1 strand for the fiddlier bits) of embroidery floss. I ‘tied’ it with embroidery floss to quilt it.

Redwork is very current in my life right now as I am working on a long distance redwork quilt with my mum (she is in the UK) so when I came across ‘the Quilt Project’ I was so excited and just had to be a part of it.

Here’s how I transferred the little designs onto the quilt to embroider them.

Just absolutely superb. I especially loved your little tag on the reverse of the quilt. Really beautiful.
