Redwork Post

First of all, I want to say thank you to everyone who participated in The Philpott Lake Project and The Mail Art Experiment.  I can’t thank you enough for the generosity with which you shared your art and the patience you had with me throughout the process of putting together a webpage and exhibit for each.

This round, I have a vision of creating a single piece of art incorporating designs from 50-70 mail artists.  Embroidery is something I love, and I would like to make a redwork quilt with a square dedicated to each contributing artist.  Here is an excellent example of the type of quilt I hope to create:

Since it will be just one piece, I plan on showing it in a group textile exhibit when it is finished.  The stitching will be incredibly time consuming, so I am setting a goal of having the quilt completed in the fall of 2020.  When it is done, I will send a print of the finished piece to each contributor.  As designs are received and pieces are stitched, I will post updates at

If you would like to participate, please send a design that fits within a 7x7 inch square (I expect it will have a ½ inch to one-inch border).  Ideally, I would like you to incorporate your name and city into your square, but other than that the subject matter is entirely up to you.

Technically I would like simple line art (no shading or blocks of color) and you should be able to trace over your design with a fat marker without it getting muddled.

Thank you, I hope you consider joining in on the madness!

Many thanks to Laurence Gillot for the latest pattern and the accompanying art.  I am out of patterns once again, so please send one along if you haven't yet.  Thank you all!

23.02.19 Dare Ms. Diana Hale, certainly looks to me (from my little corner of the mailroom) as if  you are one of those artists that can do more in five minutes than I could ever do in a lifetime. Already you have made  many IUOMA members pleasantly pleased with your redwork quilt project & still continue  to reach out to do more. This is a terrific idea/project & you  are most deserving. Ongoing best wishes to you & your Red Work Quilt.  SinCelery, Richard Canard

A regal pattern from Daisy Mae (dogs can be mail artists too) and a fabulous one from Sylvie Moore.  If everyone in the group sends a design we will have enough for a quilt, so I am setting a deadline of July 4th.  42 total pattern will do, but if I have a few extra will make it a little bigger and extend the deadline until we get to 54.  Thank you all!

That naked lady looks just great. It's nice she made it to be included. Thanks Diana!
