Redwork

I love redwork. I've done some (though I don't seem to have any pictures of it). I took a class in it years ago and love the simplicity of just using the one color thread. There is a lot of history around redwork also. I found this source online which explains some of it.

Around Flickr, there are many wonderful redwork examples - there are so many it was hard to choose, so I just chose some from the Embroidery pool to show as inspirations. I love the many ways you ladies have used redwork!



1. Redwork blocks flowers, 2. Redwork for a penny square swap, 3. Lois Lenski illustration done in redwork, 4. 130pres_quilt, 5. environment friendly giftwrap, 6. Birds for Kleas' ATC swap, 7. Stickmustertuch, 8. VintageFrenchRedwork02.jpg, 9. Invasion 2, 10. Stitchette, 11. Elf Stitchette, 12. Jenny Stocker Tea Cozy redwork, 13. Redwork Flour Sack Towel, 14. Redwork Embroidery, 15. redwork rabbit, 16. redwork Embroidery tea towels
