Redwork Gatherings: the Next MODA Quilt Fabric Line Coming in August

This Spring Quilt Market in May would have marked my 20th Spring  Quilt Market…I had some fun things planned…but as they say…Life Happens…so I will just have to have the fun right here on this Blog!!  I am going to slowly discuss/explain this fabric line and the quilts we have made with it… We have the time…I am going to enjoy it as I talk about them over the next week or two…  Twenty years is a long time…I have had a blast…I think this is really what I was meant to do…even though it wasn’t in my plans...sometimes it just happens that way.  I am grateful for everything and especially those of you who have followed me through the years… and I am not done yet…there is still so much to do…

Redwork Gatherings: the Next MODA Quilt Fabric Line Coming in August featured by top US quilting blogger, Lisa Bongean

Redwork Gatherings

…is my Moda fabric line based on my antique quilt collection.

My favorite quilts in my collection are the Red & White ones…I love red & white quilts so much that I knew I had to create fabrics inspired by these quilts. A treasured antique Redwork quilt inspired the main panel in this line and it can be used for so many things…Redwork Gatherings: the Next MODA Quilt Fabric Line Coming in August featured by top US quilting blogger, Lisa Bongean

If you love slow-stitching –and you know I do- the blocks can be stitched over the top of the printed lines or they can be left as they are. The designs can also be used as the center squares of pieced blocks, or just add a feather stitch between the blocks and it will be like the inspiration quilt…the possibilities are endless.  The panel is 58″ wide with a 36″ repeat.  I do not have a real pic of the panel.  Redwork Gatherings: the Next MODA Quilt Fabric Line Coming in August featured by top US quilting blogger, Lisa BongeanCan you see how we made it look like it is stitched already?Redwork Gatherings: the Next MODA Quilt Fabric Line Coming in August featured by top US quilting blogger, Lisa Bongean

Our panel is made up of only flowers & birds.

I also have a few small baby quilts with redwork designs on them…  There is something so sweet about redwork stitching.Redwork Gatherings: the Next MODA Quilt Fabric Line Coming in August featured by top US quilting blogger, Lisa BongeanIf you can’t wait for me to explain all the fabrics and quilts…they are already on the site for pre-order.  The pre-cuts are 20% off the kits are 10% off and the backings if purchase with the kit are 20% off.  But there will be more posts with chances for you to WIN stuff…I will pick winners at the end of all the Redwork Gatherings posts… but I will pick a winner from EACH post.  So PLEASE stick around and put up with me taking the time I usually don’t have to share the quilts and fabrics with you…

All REDWORK pre-orders will receive this cute sticker sheet that I was going to give out at Market..until we run out of them, I don’t think we will run out we have 300 of them…but if we do we will order more to cover our pre-orders…I don’t think we will have 300 pre-orders but I would be overjoyed if that would happen!  We have limited quantities left of the STITCH stickers as we did put them in the Bunny kit orders….we have already re-ordered them so please be patient as the sticker company is NOT working right now…but we will have them again soon.Redwork Gatherings: the Next MODA Quilt Fabric Line Coming in August featured by top US quilting blogger, Lisa Bongean Redwork Gatherings: the Next MODA Quilt Fabric Line Coming in August featured by top US quilting blogger, Lisa Bongean

    I love to do anything that involves redwork. I have a quilt made through the Little Wool Shop and the owner Connie Huddleston. Sadly, they are no longer in business. All of the embroidery patterns are based on old designs and I love it. Your new line is gorgeous.

    I haven’t done embroidery in years, but love needle turn applique and big stitch quilting. I may have to get your beautiful new fabric – after all I’ve used or have stashed all the other Gatherings!

    Hi Lisa. I have done the embroidery for about six quilts. Had one red work quilt sewn together and didn’t like ilike the sashing so ripped it all out. I am working on a snowman redwork one now. Embroidery is just relaxing. Have been embroidering since I was 8; so for about 60 years

      I love redwork and quilting. My mom loved to sew and quilt and i learned everything i know from her. Although she was taken from me at a young age i believe she sees all my quilts and is so proud of me. I always wanted to make a whole clorh redwork quilt

    I am working on a red and white quilt right now. It has lots of different pieced hearts on it. I just love it. (I did tell my husband I wasn’t going to start another project till I finished a few that I had already started. But then I went to the quilt shop and fell in love with the fabric).

    I love red work! I have done a couple of small quilted wall hanging and some old fashioned flour sack towels. My small wall hangings combine red work and quilting ( with red and white fabric of course.) I am a self-taught stitcher, so I am sure I don’t do everything correctly….but I love my completed projects. Can’t wait to make something with this beautiful fabric!

    I LOVE redwork. I think it’s been in my genes since before birth as my Bop (my grandpa) did red work as a young boy. When the people were told by the government to destroy anything they had in the attic that would cause fire if they were bombed by the Germans, my grandma (they were married by then), decided to declutter and threw out the red work squares that Bop stitched as a young boy. My mother told me this story when I started embroidery in red thread as a very young girl. So, as a result, when I had my children and then my grandchildren, each got a red work quilt. Well, for my children, I have large blocks partially done (!!) but my grandchildren have a real red work finished quilt – one with circus animals and the other with alphabet letters. My oh my, do I ever love redwork! I still think of my Bop’s lost red work squares and long to have them. Yes, I love stitching and the stem stitch to outline the designs. I still have some blocks not totally stitched! I’d love that panel and any pieces from your new line as I have alot of thread still itching to be stitched!!

    I totally love red work and hand embroidery. I’m learning to like the stem stitch. Now that I’ve seen your video tutorial.

    I think doing the panel as a “whole cloth” wound be a blast. Can’t wait to see it in real life.

    I love handiwork. I’m currently working on a snowman embroidered wall hanging quilt. This would not be considered redwork since it’s all in blue. 😀I would love to do a redwork quilt. Wonderful new fabric line!

  36. Debbie Somogyi Avatar

    I love to use the variegated red floss on my redwork quilts. Most of the ones I have done are for Christmas and they are my favorites. I have 4 daughters and only 3 of these quilts made, so I need to start another one so they each have one someday.

    I did a great deal of hand stitching as early as 10 years old…self taught. Now at 67 years old and newly retired, I’m excited and anxious to return to stitching. The Redwork Gatherings project is the perfect project to begin again. ❤️

    I love the thought of handwork & love the finished product. Unfortunately, I rarely finish. I’m still working on Liberty Gatherings 🙄. I absolutely love 2 color quilts especially red & white. I can’t wait until it comes out.

    I am now able to stem stitch now that I have your stitching book! And have been pouring over my quilt pattern books for the perfect pattern to use the redwork gatherings fabric. It’s time to make a twin size quilt for our spare bed I think.

    I haven’t actually done red work but I made all three of my daughters blackwork samplers for Christmas about 5 years ago. I love handstitching and got back into cross stitch because of all the more Primitive patterns. I love to work on your wool kits because I have quite a bit and I love wool and fabric appliqué.

  51. Dori Bockbrader Avatar

    I love the redwork. But I understand that “redwork” doesn’t actually have to be red–it cold be any color?? It’s the idea of doing the work in just one color. Is that right. I do have a redwork kit that I’ve been wanting to do for a few years, but I just haven’t gotten to it. Maybe this summer.

  52. sylvia11310 Avatar

    I sure do LOVE red and white quilts and someday I’m going to make one. Or more! Oh – gee – your Redwork Gatherings would sure work into that plan beautifully! Love your photos of your red and whites.

    I have done several redwork and bluework projects. One of my favorites was a set of bluework pillow cases and redwork kitchen towels (days of the week each having a young girl doing different household chores) for my grandma (at least 50 years ago).

    I have also completed a redwork ‘Old World Santa’ of the month…beautiful…sorry; cannot remember name/designer of the pattern. Something incredibly satisfying doing handwork and seeing a completed project…especially in gorgeous reds and whites.

    Finally, I have made at least 9 red and white quilts.. all traditional quilt patterns…2 double wedding rings.

    A long time ago I did some redwork stitching. I am not that good at handwork but have decided, now that I am retired, just moved and don’t have TV service, that I am going to go back to do some redwork. I found a bunch of wool kits that I bought from Primitive Gatherings over the years. I also found some aprons and such in a buffet when I moved and some is redwork.

    I love to do handwork with wool. To me it is very relaxing after a stressful day of work plus you can still watch TV 😊. I also would like to get the panels to stitch. It would remind me of my grandma that lived to almost 103 but recently passed. Thanks for creating such wonderful projects.

    I love doing redwork. Ten years ago I completed an “Alphabet” type quilt as a fundraiser for my son’s school. I liked it so much I made a set of redwork alphabet blocks for myself. The blocks are still waiting for me to finish. I also have Birdbrain redwork pillowcases waiting to be stitched.

    I tried my hand at redwork – but as so often happens – another project caught my attention and I moved on. I was a little more committed to a blue-work sampler (blue is my favorite color) so there’s a chance this project will get finished some day. Most of my hand-stitching the last few years has been on wool projects. I find it to be more forgiving. All that being said, I adore the look of redwork and am excited about your new line of fabrics. Happy 20th Anniversary! That’s a wonderful accomplishment. You’ve brought a lot of joy and inspiration to so many people. Congratulations!

    Yes, I have done redwork. I have a beautiful Christmas ornament that is a sampler of stitches and brightens my tree every year. I do love stem stitching. It is uniform, covers well and makes me feel successful as a stitcher. At this point in my life, I would not attempt a whole cloth redwork quilt. There are just too many quilts to piece with Primitive Gathering fabrics!

    Oh wow wow wow. I love handwork and have stitched a small winter theme wall hanging but I would love to work the panel. I would also like to hear how you would quilt an embroidered quilt. Beautiful fabrics!

    I love any type of handwork but have never done any red work. That will definitely change because I love the new fabric you shared. Looking forward to this!!

    I enjoy handwork and I have used the stem stitch in most of my projects. Redwork Gatherings looks gorgeous. What a rich, beautiful red. Thanks, Lisa

    I have done some small pieces of redwork. I like the look of the style but wish more patterns used more than one or two stitches.
    I do find stem stitch easier to do than back stitch for some reason.
    YES, I love handwork and more varied the better. Crazy quilting, surface embroidery, blackwork, redwork, … all of it.
    I don’t know about a whole cloth redwork sampler. It would have to use more than a couple of stitches and the drawings would have to appeal to me.

    I love what you’ve done! I learned Redwork as a young girl . . . My Grandmother insisted that we learn to embroider, and so some if our first stitching was down in flour sack dish towels. Great memories!

    My favorite read where a piece was one that I did with my grandma. I can’t wait to do a project with your new fabric line!

    I have never done any redwork, although I have admired it for years. My favorite stitch is the stem stitch, and hope to get better after watching your video on it.

    I love red and white quilts too! Always have love embroidery work made with the combination of piece quilts. I love the new collection.

    I have ONE red and white quilt. I did a few of the blocks in the stem stitch as centers for a few of the pieced ones, as most of the quilt is pieced. It has taken me probably 40 years to be mostly happy with my stem stitch–it’s harder than it looks–especially around tight corners. Patience is the key! I do indeed LOVE handwork! It’s my therapy!

    I have done several redwork wall hangings and table toppers. Some were in blue, some in black, some red. I love the slow stitching part of life. Can’t wait to see these fabrics.

      Redwork Gatherings is so pretty! I love red & white fabrics but have never done redwork. I am always working on my stem stitch and enjoy hand embroidery in general.

    I love handwork and really love red & white quilts! I was so excited to hear that you were coming out with a red work line and have been anxiously awaiting these posts and the chance to pre-order. I have a number of red & white antique quilts in my collection, too, and have always wanted to make one. Thanks so much for creating this gorgeous line!

    My mind is spinning on where to begin with these fabrics….will I purchase a kit, will I purchase fabrics for just the perfect project. I love the embroidery. I don’t have many antique quilts, but I do have a redwork quilt made as a community fund raiser in the early 1900s. My Grandpa’s Uncle bought the quilt and through a series of seemingly unconnected events, the quilt now resides at my home. What a treasure it is. Thank you for these beautiful reds!

    I enjoy doing stitchery….but not so much the stem stitch…..I enjoy doing the backstitch. I like the idea of stitching over the panel…no tracing!! Love your new collection!!

    I love red work. I have several of the antique redwork penny squares like the redwork panel. I enjoy embroidery handwork. Your new line is wonderful.

    I do love to hand stitch, I think I could tackle a project like that if I broke it down into smaller more manageable blocks. Maybe a 12″ with either 4″ or 6″ subset blocks on each. I am so excited about your new fabric line, like many others red and white quilts are my all time favorite combination!

    I have done red work before and really enjoy it. It reminds me of my childhood when you were able to buy a pre stamped design and purchase some threads at Woolworth’s. I still have my original sewing case with a satin liner!

    Hi Lisa- I love to hand stitch. As a child, I would embroider pillow cases & my grandmother would crochet the bottom. I do wool applique, rug hooking and am now making the log cabin quilt from your kit. I love your new red & white line – can’t wait to see it in the quilt shops.

    Took embroidery back up last year. It was something I did as a child. I had forgotten how relaxing it was. So portable, I can keep it in my purse to work on whenever I have a few free minutes. It’s amazing how much can be accomplished.
