Suspicious Redwork Quilt

When I was in my quilt appraisal class, we looked at TONS of quilts.

One of them belonging to a fellow classmate had these really interesting and different 'animals' on there in redwork embroidery.

There were these strange yak-like things, and other odd animals we could almost not even identify.

This guy though, took the cake. In the end we debated between a sasquatch and Cro-Magnon man.

Oh, and I got the most tempting and naughty email from Purl today...they have new Liberty of London prints (I will have to be physically restrained from buying some) and these little fawn prints that are to die for adorable.

Oh please please please quit teasing me... (Letting me know about the Purl shopping opportunities) Luckily, I am suffering from sticker shock... (& saving up for the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Show in a couple weeks where I will probably purchase some Taupes from Pinwheels.)

Wow, what an unusual redwork motif. In January, a Lindbergh kidnapping redwork quilt sold on eBay for $1,495.00. Photos here:

You never know what you'll find on a quilt.
