Time to think of a beautiful quilt to hang on our living room wall.
I just received Quilting for Christmas magazine and was instantly drawn to the beautiful wall-hanging, Carol of the Cardinals.
(And this is a 'just-pinch-me-I-must-be-dreaming-moment'. I just found out that the designer of this quilt has commented on my blog! ~~Wendy Sheppard from Ivory Spring....yes, I am in awe & have an ear-to-ear grin!)
Time to mix-and-match all of my fabric scraps.
I so love this pattern because it worked up quickly, but the design still maintains that quaint, simple allure of Christmas.
And then to add my most favorite bird to enhance this!?! This is just so perfect.
Just a few more stitches to finish the edging of the applique and then I can tackle the basting & quilting -- and I'm not sweating that like I usually do because it is small enough that I don't have to clear out the furniture.
