Another Finish

This quilt came home from Koleen's at the same time as Crows in the Pumpkin Patch, and I finished sewing the binding on it this afternoon. This one is called Caroling Cardinals, also from The Quilted Cardinal. One of the things I especially liked about this pattern is that you can't tell easily where a block begins and ends. It was a simple pattern to sew, even the star in the center. I just had to pay close attention not to turn any of the blocks the wrong way.

The cardinal fabric gives it that Christmas-y feel, but I think it would work equally well with any medium to large scale fabric that you could fussy cut for the star centers. The red motif in the photo reminds me of a tulip, and I think a floral fabric with a spring theme would be nice too.
