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.

    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.
