Redwork Doll quilt top

A couple of weeks ago, Susan at Homespun Quilts wrote about looking at new sewing machines and I realized that I haven't really explored my "new" sewing machine (now 5 years old.) I decided to finally figure out how to use one of the embroidery programs and this is the result: a 14" x 18" Redwork doll quilt top. Now I want to figure out how to combine the various parts (I think a flower head is supposed to be on top of the 2nd row right square.

I'm really hoping to finish the Wedding Quilt this week (I just have to stop having fun and work,work,work.)

Oh my Miri, glad I could help in getting you to play with your sewing machine. I love redwork and that is pretty cool to machine embroider. Our wedding quilt is on hold until after the wedding next month (got to get those signatures).

Hi! Thanks for the nice comment and for stopping by my blog. I love that tumbling block quilt in your earlier post, I have never seen them arranged that way, thanks for showing it to us.
