Your redwork quilt is awesome. I would love to make one but don't have the eyes or the patience for embroidery anymore.


It all looks so beautiful! I have a redwork project in mind for sometime in the future. Great inspiration!


Once again, I'm envious, of the redwork!! Recipe please!!


Wow! What an awesome find. I adore all redwork. It reminds me of my Great Grandmother. I have wanted a mangle since Martha explained how they work. What a beauty you have! Yes, I am reading your post today with great envy. I can so relate to the poor wife at the estate sale.



vicki, I love that first bit about beauty and duty!

I have been meaning to email you, do you think we should do tablecloth Thursdays once a month? How about the First or last Thursday? I was derailed by the small fry's birthday and then Halloween!

That quilt find rocks!

For the loose squares, shy not make a denim tote bag or messenger and frame them with some red rickrack on the front, maybe add some red gingham?


P.S. I bet the hubby is still hearing about how "he got her there late!"


What an amazing find - the redwork squares are just beautiful. I especially love the one of 'Old Faithful' - just like my dog. Cupcakes look scrummy - recipe would be fab please.

Wow! That redwork is truly amazing. I'm not familiar with it being from Souh Africa, but I love it. What an incredible find. I think you must be well qualified to start your own museum :)

I have a Pan Am Expo quilt top made by my husband's great grandmother and would love to know the value. It's in excellent condition.


Hi, I dont do appraisals, but I think a local woman does. Google Linda Hunter quilts and you will find her. Coincidentally, my high school students are making a repro PanAm quilt. We have one at the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site here in Buffalo. I would love to see a photo of your quilt. Its my favorite because of the local history. Good Luck! Vicki
