Red Delicious is launched!

Many thanks to Brenda - without you, I would'nt have known what to do! You have saved my blog yet again (Brenda is also the reason many of you can view my images these days as she kindly let me in on the secret of "re-sizing" images). Well, what can I say? I put my energy and desire to learn new things into creative things and not technology (although I should!) there is no real reason not to know these days...ahem....anyway, thank you so much for the advice. I feel like I learn something new everytime I get on the computer!
Brenda's site is linked on the side of this blog under 'Serendipity Patchwork and Quilting'.

Red Delicious is easy to access. Simply double click the BOM motif on the side of the blog and it will redirect you to the PDF file.



  1. Thank you so much for offering this
    BOM . It looks like it will be a beautiful quilt and I hope to be able to make it. I won't be able to start until after the holidays

  5. I'm so glad I was able to help! If anyone else would like to know how to link to a pdf or document in their blog, then here is a useful guide by Blogging 101.

  6. Looks like a very nice BOM to me. Thanks for the pattern and greetings from Marmaris - Turkey.

  7. Hi esther.
    The first part of your BOM is lovely.
    Thanks for sharing it.

  8. I love your beautiful work and was so excited when you said you were going to have a free bom. I've downloaded the first and can't wait to start. Thanks for sharing your talents with us!

  9. What a lovely idea - thank you for sharing your wonderful ideas with us!

  10. Esther,
    Thank-you for generously offering us such a beautiful BOM. The first installment has me hooked and I'll be back for the rest.

  11. Hi Esther
    The BOM is really lovely, however I am having trouble printing out the last 2 pages (the diagrams of the birds). It comes up with an Acrobat error message and shuts down completely. Help!

  12. I love BOMs and this looks like fun - thank you! I'm wondering if it might look nice done in candlewicking - i.e. lots of colonial knots and some well-placed satin stitch and other fancy work?

  13. Hi everyone

    Thank you for your kind comments. If you are having trouble downloading the file, please try again as the site SCRIBD has had a few overwhelmed moments but has otherwise been working fine. If you are still having trouble,
    please email me with FORWARD BOM in the subject line and I will send the file to you directly via email.


    This BOM would look fantastic with satin stitching (and any other embellishing or fancy work) there is a lot of scop for it in the design. Please send me a photo of your finished masterpiece I'd love to see your take on it !

  14. Thank you!! Gorgeous pattern!! Cathy

  15. Hello Esther!!! Is the first time taht I see your blog, is beautifull!!! I want this the BOM!!! Hugs!!!

  16. Dear Esther
    I love birds and the first block really tempted me and I must begin to this BOM. I will make it scrappy and make some blocks in applique and some blocks in embroidery.
    Thanks for your beatiful gift.

  19. Esther, I love this. I have just about finished another red and white quilt though nothing like this and have a stash of reds left. Looks like the perfect opportunity to use them up. Look forward to this. Love your blog too. D. :=)

  25. Wow, your first block is absolutely beautiful! I am definitely in. I have printed the first one and pulled all my reds and kind of you to offer a free BOM for the quilting world. Cool!

  26. The first block of your BOM is lovely. Thanks for sharing! I want to make it. In fact, I want to start right now, but it will have to wait until after Christmas.

  27. It took me some time to decide thanks to my UFO's. But your first block is so lovely and inviting that I just have to. Thank you so much for sharing.

  28. Esther,
    I love this first block and can't wait to see the rest of them. Very pretty!

  32. Hi Ester,
