Cardinal Quilt is a Splash of Color all Winter |
Fusible Applique Makes This Quilt Easier Than it Looks!
While we love winter, the whites and browns of the landscape can become tiring after awhile. It’s always a treat to see colorful cardinals settling in the trees and adding a splash of color.
This quilt by Prairie Grove Peddler brings the colors of cardinals in the landscape inside. The bright spot of color this lovely quilt provides is a welcome touch when everything is brown and white out the windows.
The quilt is constructed with blocks of appliqued cardinals interspersed with simple 9 patch blocks. The piecing couldn’t be easier, and the fusible applique makes the cardinals simple to make.
Fabric scraps can be used for the pieced background squares, as well as for the cardinals. Mix up the fabrics for more interest, but stick with small scale prints.
The finished quilt is 40″ x 40″. Display it on a wall, or even on a table. Or, use the row of three center blocks to create a table runner, perhaps turning the top cardinal block upside down.
If you only have patience to create one cardinal, set the block in the center of nice borders and proudly display it as a mini wall quilt.

It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
