Redwork, Vintage Embroidery, Quilt Designs
These designs are elegant and a joy to embroider. Imagine, just for a second, how embroidering an entire quilt
top or your own embroidered fabric is now a matter of hours, not a matter of days or weeks. This is truly a magical experience.
They can be stitched as redwork designs or as vintage colored designs or used to quilt. They are also perfect to attempt the
traditional tone-on-tone Trapunto and the fun type of Trapunto, using colored yarns on the back
to create a colored effect.
Crystals, beads and pearls are fun to use with these designs on decorative items.
There are NO JUMPS
in the one solid color designs and kept to the bare minimum
for the multicolored designs and untouching parts.

*** NOTE: These designs are not resized. A design resized from 4 inches up to 6 inches would create long and unsightly stitches. Each of the designs
in each of the sizes has been re-digitized for perfectly matching designs in each of the sizes. So if you decide you'd like to quilt with the designs and vary
the size of the designs, your stitch length will be perfect every time.
