Indiana Inspired Christmas Quilt

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.

Wow, that is quite impressive. I didn't know you were so talented. I've always thought quilting was sooo hard. That is beautiful. I love the cardinals.
