It's FINSIHED! 3 days ahead of schedule I might add ☺
This quilt was a lot of fun for me to make. It was small so it went realitively fast, it involved applique, which, in my opinion is a lot of fun, and I simply love the cardinals!
Without Further Adieu:
Each cardinal is 100% applique with a simple straight black stitch along the edges.
The other block is a very simple 9 Patch Square.
Each unfinished block is 10 1/2" and the border is 4".
I quilted along the outline of each bird using a beige thread.
I quilted the center of each 9 Patch Square with a poinsettia. The center of the poinsettia is made up of several yellow french knots.
The Backing and Binding are a very vibriant red green and gold poinsettia fabric.
Anyway there you have it. I love the way it turned out.
