Cardinal Quilt


This quilt is made by my sister, Leora. She has been selected to enter her winning quilts into the national competition. What an honor. When there, she said many of the winning quilts were very abstract. I prefer a quilt where I know what I am looking at!

These cardinals are tucked behind the black quilt strips which create a window pane. The cardinal outside the window pane has been hand appliqued in place.

It is wall hanging size and perfect for your January decor if you are tired of snowmen.
