"Red Rover, Red Rover...

…It’s Finally Over!"

These red work blocks were begun sometime in 1999. Like a circle this was, what seemed to be, a project without an end! The embroidery designs came from a book by Suzanne McNeill, Redwork Designs 101, published in 1999 by Can Do Crafts.

45.5" X 54.5"

~ hand embroidered, hand appliqued, machine quilted~

Holy wow. This is so amazingly adorable and cool, too. Gosh. Oh gosh. I'm about to say "I would want this." Then I decide that's so rude but... well I already said it and you know how I am so I guess it's okay. I mean, I don't have to explain myself.

I like the different reds you mixed in. How sweetly quilting and embroidery join together in this quilt! What a beautiful job you did. Lucky you, crossing off a UFO on your list AND getting to enjoy this forever!
