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

…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

the magic of christmas…22,23,24 & 25…all the rest..

Happy Last Day of November!!!

Here you go..I promised them all before Dec.1…now get them all downloaded…as fast as possible…if you are missing blocks…use the search button on the right hand side…you will have better luck on a computer than your phone…or tablet…

These blocks will be coming off in about a week..this is your warning to get them all printed out…they are all in my blog posts…so if you can’t find one you are not working hard enough…so please look through all the posts…the links are in RED. Can’t be easier.

If I used triangle paper in these last four blocks I showed it in a picture…so please read everything as I explain if  you need to cut anything else…and what it takes the place of…some of these blocks have 1/2″ HSTs in them!!! Trust me you can do it!!

Now here is the triangle paper I used to make the block…img_8809-6

The triangle papers will eliminate B and C- light and then E and F-red

BLOCK 24

So block 24 was designed with light triangles in the middle like the country block here…well I decided real fast that this needed to be changed…so I did not have time to change my block but Teri magically photoshopped it so you wouldn’t know if I didn’t show you the evidence here…

Here is the triangle paper you need for this block…ignore the first draft of this block…don’t let it confuse you..

So you will need to still cut 6 D’s of light and 6 F’s red for the single triangles.img_8810-2BLOCK 25
