The Bird Can Face Either Right or Left!
This beautiful cardinal block can be used in many types of projects. Make a runner for your table, a throw pillow, a charming wall hanging, and even a full-size quilt. It will also be lovely on the front of a tote bag.
The bird itself can face either left or right and is made entirely with traditional machine piecing. Some of the pieces are small so you’ll get the best results with precise cutting and sewing.
While solids and low-contrast tone-on-tone prints allow the pretty red bird to shine, small prints will be lovely too. Just make sure there’s good contrast between the bird and the background.
The completed block, designed by Sandra Healy, is 12″ square.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. 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!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
