The traditional craft of Redwork has been around for over a hundred years and lives up to its name by being worked all in one colour thread, namely red! Of course there is nothing to stop you using another colour, but keep all the stitching in whatever colour you do choose. A design is embroidered through American muslin and a compressed wadding simultaneously. When embroidery is finished the work is often ‘antiqued’ by tea-dyeing it before making up.

Each design pack comprises: a full size working diagram, complete instructions on how to work the design and embroidery stitch diagrams. Additional information on uses supplied with some designs. You provide the materials for design packs, or they can be obtained from Patch Flora. Kits contain the above, plus materials to work the design only.

The seven redwork designs in the 'HOME' CLASSIC DETAILS pack (RWCD) may be used with the designs in HOMES THEME (RHO) to make the lap quilt shown above. The chart for the layout of the quilt is included in RWCD. Additional red fabrics are required.
