Happy St. Patrick's Day!

In keeping with St. Patrick's Day, here is a quilt square.  It's not green or a four leaf clover, but close enough - it's four three-leafed clovers, done in Redwork.  Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Here are two more Redwork squares that I worked on this weekend.  The "H" letter block is for the first letter in the last name of both my friend Dee and I, as we are doing this embroidery project together.  I just finished it and a butterfly.

Here is the butterfly:

Dee just sent me a text message with a picture of this  beautiful water lily block that she finished this weekend:

The squares are all the same white background, and are all embroidered with red pearl cotton thread, and they will be combined into a quilt top when we get them finished.  Dee embroidered the four clover leaf block in the first picture.

I have had lots of time to work on Redwork while away from home this weekend, and am looking forward to April when Dee and I get together.  We can then see all of the squares together that we have finished, and see how far we have come.

Monday morning is the time to look at Judy Liquidara's blog and see what is on everyone's design walls.  (Here)


  1. Beautiful work! And may the luck of the Irish be with you and the Spartans!

  2. those are so cute. Have I told you I am the world's worst embroiderer bar none?
    I've been dickering feedsacks for shirts...keeping my fingers cross for a pile. cotton/poly seems to be the standard here and eeuuu for piecing.

  3. I love your blocks! You do beautiful work.


I am always searching for new ideas and your feedback helps me learn how to do things better. Thanks for stopping by!
