IN THE RED--

Fabrics that is--
this month's color is 'red'--
and what bird is red???
none other than my favorite bird--
the--
Cardinal--the male one--
I did not have a pattern for him--
just some photos from the internet--
so this guy took me a few hours to make--
and to get him to fit a 7 1/2" square block--
what 'fun' I had!!!!
but he is done--
along with the strip block--
so I am happy--
next Saturday will be the cat blocks in red---
and here is a look at all the blocks so far--
I am really 'lovin' my new design wall--
so much better for taking photo's of the finished blocks too!!!!

I have also started a St Patty's day door hanging--
but got a ways to go on that one--
did get the pattern ready and fabrics picked out for the main body of the quilt!!

               enjoy the moments, di

  1. OK, just answered my own question. Very impressed with your "from scratch" cardinal. I need to do some strip blocks, they look cool.

  2. Your Red Cardinal Bird is amazing, especially as you didn't have a pattern. All the blocks look fabulous together on your new design board..

  4. Love your cardinal! Cardinals are my favorite bird. We have a pair that nests close to the house each spring and I love to watch them. You've got a nice theme with the birds and the string blocks. Are those going into the same quilt?

  5. Gorgeous cardinal! And without a pattern? I'm impressed. Just got home from a scrapbook retreat, so I need to get busy with my red scraps.
