    I want to do a quilt for my Mom who will be 82 this January. She loves cardinals so I have found fabric with cardinals and pine needles on it ... I have also found a contrast red piece and some other fabric with pine needles and pine cones ... I don't have a lot of time to do this so am looking for something fairly simple. I am just finishing up seven quilts that I had promised to do before Christmas ... all done ecept the binding on four of them.

    I was just going to say to try a "Warm Wishes" pattern. It goes together really fast and easy and is a great pattern to showcase a "feature" print or two.
    erstan947 beat me to it!

    I am directing you to quilterscache.com as well, look at Antique tile. It has a center block with two contrasting borders and corners.

    This one was a very easy three day quilt that I made for my son for Christmas...it might give you an idea. It is all 2 1/2 " strips with some very simple machine applique in the center...of cardinals! and a 6 inch border all around

    You could use the cardinal print as the outside border...and the pincones as one of the strips

    I agree that warm wishes would be great. Or alternate snowball block of focus fabric with a 4 patch or rail fence blocks of co-ord fabrics.
