I love to dye fabric, make thread pictures and quilt. I live in the Yukon on an acreage with my husband, 2 dogs and 34 fish. It's the 'good' life.

Bird Embroidery Quilt

I have been making the Redwork Winter Twitterings  quilt "my way". That is, I do not do hand embroidery, so I did these pieces by machine. I used a 12 weight thread and I think it turned out nicely.

Here are all the pieces on the wall. This is pretty close to the actual blue I used.

Colour corrected

As can be seen, I decided to do this in blue instead of red as my house is more blue and silver at Christmas.

I actually think this was the easy part. Now onto making the pieced blocks!


  1. I did not imagine you could do that kind of embroidery on a sewing machine! I'm impressed! I've been wanting to do some redwork (by hand, though). Someday I will buy the supplies and get started. Someday...

  2. Very nice design collection i like all the design i have bookmark this page for future help..Thank you very much for this post.
