Winter Cardinal Quilt Pattern By Kaaren Johnston of The Painted Quilt

My sister just adores cardinals and I try to make something for her every once in awhile. So, I was happy to see that Kaaren Johnston had a wonderful pattern on her The Painted Quilt blog showing you how to make a mini winter quilt with a cardinal. My sister would love it.

First Friday Freebie #17 - Winter

Here's what Kaaren had to say about her pattern:  Can you believe that it’s the First Friday of February already? I certainly hope that this month flies by as quickly as January did because that would mean we’re that much closer to Spring. Please…no more snow!

Since we are in the throes of winter and cardinals visit our bird feeders on a daily basis, I drew my inspiration for this month’s FFF (First Friday Freebie) from their beauty. Their coloring is simply amazing and lends itself perfectly to redwork. This month’s project is called, “Winter”.

Kaaren's Bio: I am an artist and have recently retired from actively designing, publishing and travel teaching in the decorative painting industry. A short while later, in December of 2010, we moved from Eastern Ontario to the beautiful Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. Quilting, stitching, applique and most recently rug hooking have become my new passions. Oh, and did I mention that I love to make and collect pincushions and needlecases! Join me on the First Friday of every month when I release a new Freebie design for you to make and enjoy.
