Here is a link to patterns for redwork that tell the story of Colonial America. If you have young ladies that like to sew, redwork is a great project. This quilt would look very nice in my bedroom. Maybe I can get some time to sew myself one.
Here is another link with a description of each quilt block.
I am mama to 5 sweet and busy children ages 4-19. I currently am teaching 1, 7th, and 9th grades using Tapestry of Grace with swirls of Charlotte Mason elements throughout. When I'm not teaching, I'm chasing my 4 year old, or climbing Mount Washmore, or spending way too much time on Pinterest and not nearly enough time cleaning house or doing laundry.
