    Wow! That looks great, Terri. I love the cardinals too. It does look Christmassy. Great idea.

    For those of you who want it...well, come get it! lol
    I just got back from a meeting for an Asian Auction that is going to go on and got some more info on the craft fair. Since the fair will be open to EVERYONE, not just military, I can pretty much set the prices for what is mainly pricing for the states. That's a good thing. From what I understand, there really isn't any home made things except for a lady that does ornaments...the bake and paint kind. So...hoping that I will "steal" the show with what I can get done.
    I brought one of my totes with me. I always do, it showcases them to others, plus I can hopefully get sales too. lol One lady said that the totes should sell like hotcakes. I sure hope so!

    you know I never would have thought to do an irish chain with that much going on pattern wise, but hey it really works. My mother in law would love that, she has collected cardinals for years.

    I would have never thought of it either, but I got the idea when I saw the fabric, so figured, why not at least try. If it doesn't look good, I can always give it to MIL, she loves what I make, even the ugly stuff. lol
    But, I was actually surprised at how it came out.
    I'm going to "x" the 9 patches. Found some gold thread today.
    I'm in the process of putting 2 totes together, then I am going to work on finishing...Yes, the "F" word....the quilt tops that need to be done.
    I need to go and buy a plastic bin/tote for this stuff and start putting it away so I don't start losing it in my room.

    Ok, I'll try and get a closeup of the corner of it. Won't be able to do it until later. Have a meeting I need to get ready for, but will post after I get back from meeting.

    I love your quilt. My mom was the bird lover in our family. I like the Irish chain made with the printed big squares. I don't think I've seen one that didn't have white, solid, or embroidery in the middles of the chains. It's very striking with all the birds. Great job!

    I found the fabric at Ben Franklins.
    It says Cranston Print Works 2005 on the edge....if that's any help.
