Redwork Meets Bluework by Legacy Patterns

AnnasRunnerBlue small

“I have always been drawn to two-colored quilts and embroidered projects. I love doing handwork, stitchery, handquilting, embroidery and punch needle. This is really what inspired me to create this next line. The prints are adapted from vintage swatches circa 1880s. There is a mix of ground shades. The crisper whiter grounds represent my interpretation of what the fabrics would have been in their original state. The tea stained grounds are how the grounds appear now in the original vintage swatches. I wanted to give people the option of ground shades, a newer look or a vintage look. Quilters can also choose to combine the ground shades to give more depth in their projects. If you look at a vintage quilt you will notice that there is a lot of variation in the background because of how fabrics age differently over time.”

“This collection is not limited to traditional Redwork and Bluework and two-color quilts. The original concept was to design two distinct color groupings, however, they can be mixed and matched to create wonderful Americana themed, Quilts of Valor and other patriotic projects.”

#quiltwithlove with Lynette Anderson

Lynette Anderson blog post 2

Lynette Anderson got into quilting when she worked on her baby quilt for her first born. She has the quilt still and used it as an inspiration for her new pattern, which will be available on her website soon. She has recently reworked her design to incorporate fabrics from her fabrics lines with RJR; Bread and Butter and Pocket Full of Daisies. I love the crib size baby quilt, the stitchery is lovely.

SKU’s used are: Floral 2002-003, Stripe 2007-001, and Grey 2407-001.

My family owns and operates an apple orchard in the fall. When I picked my colors from the gorgeous selection of Cotton Supreme Solids I went with a pallette of reds, oranges, greens, and blues to go along with the apple orchard theme.

Apple Hill Farm by Kids Quilts


Rachael’s home near Wanaka in New Zealand’s South Island is neighbored by a farm, which is what inspired the mother-daughter duo to choose apples as their theme for their next line. Christine’s daily foraging for wild apples with her grandchildren inspired her to infuse the line with apple trees and apples, and she spared no design.

Iowa State Fair White Christmas

One of my quilt designs featuring my “White Christmas” collection displayed at the Iowa State Fair. I knew the sledding snowmen print would be great as a fussy-cut fabric and from what I’ve seen from those using it, we all had the same idea smile emoticon Quilted by the insanely talented Jessica Gamez.
