Pam's quilt

Howdy y'all...just wanted to show you a friend's quilt, as I have not had any quality quilting time lately. My friend Pam finished the quilt above. A few years ago, we all made red work blocks, any pattern, any subject...then all swapped! Another friend put them all into stars. Then each of us set our particular set of blocks together. Pam got hers done first...and here it is! I am binding it for her. You can see where I am in that process. Another friend with a long arm quilter, quilted it for her. Pretty!
I like this block in her quilt.. a cute little sewing lady!

And this block too..I like this one! We swapped red work airplanes, alphabet letters, flowers, animals...you name it and we made it. Four friends swapped, and we had enough for four quilts with nine blocks each. It was fun!!! We have swapped nine patches in reproduction fabrics, batik slice and dice blocks, and made several quilts together for our charity, which is the elementary school by our hospital.
And speaking of fun...hope you are having some this week!!
Julie

What a wonderful quilt and I like the teamwork....one friend doing the stars...another quilting it....another (you!!!) binding it. What a fun project!

That quilt is adorable! I think you must be the nicest friend yet to bind it for her....that is my least favorite part!

These redwork quilts always impress me. That's another one I'd like to do, but probably never will. It's very lovely.

What a lovely Red Work quilt. I need to start embroidering again.
