Library Journal Review

Featuring simple stitches like the outline stitch and the French knot, the line art designs of redwork embroidery are often stitched on white muslin fabric with red embroidery floss. For many embroiderers, the appeal of redwork lies in its elegance. Anderson, host of HGTV's Simply Quilts program, here presents 24 designs in a technique she calls "shadow redwork," which adds white-on-white embroidered background lettering to redwork embroidery. The stark red-on-white design is contrasted by the more subtle phrases in the background of the piece. These designs, prepared by Anderson for teaching sessions on a cruise ship it's a tough job, she says, but someone has to do it feature heart and flower motifs appropriate for pillows, small quilts, and wall hangings. Recommended for public libraries where demand warrants. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
