These precise little blocks for this red and white sampler quilt measure just 4″x4″…tiny points and fine work! The petite squares done up in classic quilt block patterns will be assembled with a border and sashing, and then completed as a wall hanging.
January is a great time to sort through the thread box, find just the right shades of red and spend an afternoon stitching up a project as the snow falls. Here’s a sample of what’s going to be on view at the 2018 Sackets Harbor Quilt Show.
In keeping with the red thread theme, this year the quilt show will have a special needlework exhibit of red work samplers, vintage and contemporary.
In 2018 the Sackets Harbor Quilt Show will trace the path of The Red Thread that weaves its way through quilts, needlework, knitting, and embroidery. We’ll celebrate Redwork, the classic quilting embellishment, as well as quilts that feature red fabrics. Watch for updates as we get ready for 2018!
