Size:  40.0 KBAre you looking for a free pattern? Have you seen one in particular that you like? Would you prefer appliqué or paper piecing or regular piecing? The cardinal is such a gorgeous bird, but not seen normally in my area. I have made an appliquéd one from a magazine pattern years back.... will see if I can find a photo.

    I have seen fabric that has cardinals on it but I have not seen a pattern. I know there are patterns for stained glass, maybe three are patterns for stains glass quilts that have cardinals on it.

    I have made many wall hangings from Petal Play of the cardinal. Maybe you could adapt the pattern.

    Eleanor Burns has a lovely book out called "Quilts Through the Seasons". Under the winter section there is a Lodgepole Pine Quilt that can be made in many sizes and there is an optional Red Cardinals section on page 52. Perhaps this might appeal to you. Happy holidays and quilting!

    I'm starting one now. It's cardinals that I am fussy-cutting and then putting a border around each block and doing 12 X13 blocks.

    I am very poor at applique so I opted for the cardinal fabric, fussy cutting and framing the cardinals in a pieced block. Pretty fast and not too difficult over all.Name:  finished bird quilt.jpg

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    This is without a doubt the prettiest and most lifelike quilted cardinal that I have seen. We have them at our feeder each day about the time that we also eat. The feeder is about 7 feet from our table and we even joke about them hearing me call DH for a meal and magically, they appear. Cardinals have always been my favorite bird and it is so rare that you find one in a picture or on fabric without snow and snow seems so out of place here in Florida. Thank you for showing this wonderful bird in its quilted glory! I guess that I will have to appliqué one as I hate to paper piece. Again thanks for showing that making such a beauty can be done.
