Cardinal UFO

      About 4 years ago I took a thread painting workshop from Jody Raines.  I thread painted a cardinal and wanted to use it in a wall-hanging. (The cardinal has been my only independent thread painted object.)  I finally decided I wanted to use the cardinal in something smaller and made a mug rug size ( 6” by 9” ) quilt. 

I am satisfied that I finally used my thread painted product and no longer have that UFO sitting around.

    I am planning to visit granddaughters this weekend and like to make things for them.  I found directions for using t-shirts or single knit fabric to make a child’s tiered skirt. You can find a tutorial here. If Mattie enjoys this one, I could easily make more.

  1. The cardinal looks great, Elizabeth, and I bookmarked the page with the tutorial. The skirt looks cute and comfortable.
