Starry Serenade Redwork Pattern

I’ve been working on my contribution to Kirsty’s Rework Quilt Project and have been enjoying the gentle, repetitive stitching.


I drew up my pattern in Adobe Illustrator so thought it would be easy to write up some accompanying instructions, save it all as a pdf and put it up here as a downloadable embroidery pattern – for you! From me! For freee!


You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view and print off this file, which is available for free here.


The pattern and instructions are copyright and are for personal use only. Please don’t copy and redistribute it, or sell items made from the work. But you know all that. Thank you.

Let me know what you think  – I might do some more in the future.

    Thank you so much. It is very generous of you.My daughter brought out an old Cheeky Beaks book she had the other day and as soon as I saw it, I recognised the illustrations as yours. Gorgeous.

    Popping back to say that it’s looking very lovely in shell pink on calico. Another one (in purple) will match it and be sent interstate so that each girl cousin will have one and think of the other.

    Thank you! Though I might do purple for a certain niece who might be rather fond of this in a frame, or a pillow…

    thanks for sharing this! it’s so lovely and one of the more compelling reasons i’ve seen to get out the linen and floss.

    This is such a lovely thing to share. Thank you! I have mastered French knots, but the chain stitch will be new to me.

    Thank you – I am always looking for simple embroidery patterns. I sew them, put borders on them, back them with flannel and give them to our local hospitals for their premie babies. This will be perfect!

    this is great you should definitely get a pattern set going 😉 or better yet you should see if Jenny Hart needs a new artist in her “Artist Series” patterns so then there will be transfers for them!

    Love it!Do you have a flickr group where we can see other people’s finished projecs?

    I am hopeful that you will sell a PDF how to for your marshmallow bunnies!

    I love it! Such a fun take on redwork. I see a redwork quilt in my future, I’m putting this download in a special place.

    Thank you so much – so cute! My daughter was asking about embroidery patterns that I could do for her (aren’t they so ambitious for us sometimes?) and this will be perfect.
