Redwork Triple Technique Quilt

Standard

This has got to be one of my favorite quilts.  Instead of machine applique, this student chose to do machine embroidery in this triple technique quilt.  The redwork designs are complimented by the red fabric in the Irish chain and flying geese border.  Both were quilted in the ditch with a white poly thread.  The redwork block has a double row of stitching to frame the embroidery designs.  The designs are outlined and the background micro stippled.  The quilting stands out against the white fabric and sets off the Irish chain.
