Ok, I started this a few days ago not knowing how it'd turn out.
I thought an Irish Chain would look nice and it really isn't bad.

This one actually took me 3 days to make. I was a bit lazy on the sewing lol
I have some pretty green Christmasy fabric with some holly on it that I think I just may have enough for the backing. If not, I will use white. Bought a bolt of it for backing quilts. Got the bolt for $5/yd and the bolt hadn't been cut and it's 108" wide on there. I'm thinking someone mismarked it. Their mistake...MY GREAT BUY! :)

I like how the cardinals seem to sit up in the middle, it certainly puts me in the mood for Christmas (and gets me stewing about my problem quilt).
