Cardinal is finished!

Yep...cardinal is all finished...even the sleeve on the back!  Ready for the exhibit "Birds, Blooms and Butterfly's" in May..or is it April?  Hmmmmm  I forget, but it's to finish the Woodpecker and maybe the other beaded bird that is waiting for a home!  HA

Finished Cardinal

It was fun to work on this cardinal and I'm so glad to have put him in a home of patchwork!  Now onto the woodpecker and the wren, who is waiting for his home!
In progress.....

I started off with some stab stitching then switched to green threads.

I need to add more of the embroidery...

branch and some beading!

Sometimes you don't know when to stop or when to add more...

I finally decided to stop adding more embroidery...
Animation from beginning to end!

  2. Awesome finish! I picked up 1000 quilt inspirations from the library yesterday. Was pleasantly rewarded when I noticed your quilt not only inside but in the cover as well! How in the world did I miss this?

  3. Your cardinal is really stunning in that frame. The embroidery adds interest.
