Redwork Hand Embroidery

I've waited a long time to post this project on my blog!

I made this for an embroidery challenge in my Yahoo group Quilt Makers International. We were each given the simple embroidery design and told to make anything that we want using it.

I decided to go with simple redwork, since I have been wanting to do some redwork for a long time. I embroidered by hand onto some white on white fabric, and then used that as a center panel for a table topper.

I couldn't show you the finished project until now, because our group members were voting for their favorite entry during the month of August.

Wow, this gives me the itch to sew! I haven't done very much in my craft room this summer. It's time to get back in my groove!
