Carry on the tradition of redwork embroidery with the patterns and instructions within this book. The crisp combination of a red & white quilt has been a favorite of antique quilt collectors. "Turkey work," as it is known in Europe, was born in 1881 in the pages of Harper's Bazaar. Later, the individual squares were sold for a penny, hence the term Penny Squares. With these charming patterns you can embellish quilts, pillowcases, hanger covers, aprons and more and bring adorable accents into your home.
