Free pattern day ! Redwork embroidery

Here are some inspiring free designs for Redwork (embroidery with red thread on a white or off-white background). Embroidery is red hot, and many artists and designers are combining embroidery with quilting.  To go to a pattern: Scroll down the page until you see the quilt you like, then click on the words "PDF download" (or the hyperlinked website name) in the title above the quilt.

Also: Check out our E-Bay shop for great bargains on quilt patterns, fabric, and vintage jewelry ! For continuous free quilt patterns, please visit us on Twitter !

  1. I love redwork and I'm thrilled it's coming back into fashion. I think there is nothing more charming than a redwork baby blanket. Now to brush up on the embroidery skills I learned as a young girl. Thanks for posting these.
