While visiting my friend, Steph's vintage ephemera blog, I came upon a picture of an old redwork pattern. How on earth did Steph find this...it is actually a picture of ME! So I decided that my next quilt will be a self-portrait quilt for my sewing room. I will use all of the little scraps that I have left over from other projects and do a patchwork quilt around this piece of redwork embroidery that I have started.
I downloaded Steph's picture....took it into Photoshop and got rid of the pink background....printed it onto white fabric....and am embroidering it. Next I will begin piecing a quilt around it. Most likely it will be a wall hanging sized quilt to hang in my sewing room.
