This pillow was made in memory of someone we recently lost, much to early, to cancer. I made it for one of her close friends who recounted a cardinal sighting to me that occurred a day or two later. Many believe that a red cardinal sighting is a Spirit reaching out to them. I thought this pillow would be a nice keepsake for her. I hope she will glance at it from time to time and think of our friend and smile. And as always, making is therapeutic for me.
The Cardinal block pattern is available in my Etsy shop, Craftsy shop and pattern shop. I originally designed it as part of my garden quilt but I think it could be used in a Christmas quilt too.
Do you remember this quilt? It was made quite awhile ago now though I still love each of the blocks and remake some of them from time to time for various other projects.
Enjoy your day! I am going to be looking outside hoping to spy a cardinal in the snow tomorrow. I love seeing them when the whole world is otherwise white. We are expecting another storm…and the kids have yet another snowday!
