Cardinal – Paper Piecing

My previous project – Butterfly paper-piecing got me hooked on to the paper-piecing. It was time to do another gift project. I definitely have plans of making my own paper piecing patterns. But right now with the busy schedule, I borrowed one book from the local library. This is the book by Linda Causee and this amazing book has 365 paper piecing projects. I picked this beautiful cardinal project.

Here is my finished project. Finished  block in the book measured 7 x 7 inches. The finished wall hanging is 14 x 14 inches.  I added a bling to the eyes :-). It looks pretty in real than the picture.

I did some echo quilting around the bird. I did straight line quilting in the rest of the places. Here is the backside of the quilt.

So finally, another gift is ready to be given. Even though my kids want to keep it, I assured them that there will be another bird in the house pretty soon :-).

Thank you for dropping by.

Love,
