Texas quiltmaker, embroiderer, businesswoman, and teacher Rosie de Leon-McCrady began collecting redwork while on road trips with her mother-in-law, an avid quilter and appraiser. In this episode, Rosie discusses the history of redwork, and shares examples of pieces that she has both collected and designed. Next, she covers the tools you'll need, demonstrates the three basic redwork stitches, and reveals how to update your work by introducing "the unexpected" in color and fabric. We also tour the famous San Antonio River Walk and the historic Drury Plaza Hotel, the latter with its stunning Art Deco architecture and stained glass details. Tons of inspiration here!
