Christmas cardinal for mom

My parents came to NY to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary at the beginning of the month, so we had a party with all their friends at my brother's house. His wife did a great job decorating and arranging the whole thing and we had a great time. Since my mom would not be here for her birthday (which is New Year's Eve), I wanted her to have this quilt ahead of time so she could hang it for the holidays. I made it in a class at Pieceful Quilting during the summer. The quilting was done by me mostly on my embroidery machine. There is a disk with holiday quilting designs that I use. It was a fun quilt to make and I know she likes it

No, I don't like it, I LOVE it!!!! My dear, you do such lovely work. All the Cardinal items you have made me are very special. We have two here that fly back and forth from our house to the big oak tree across the canal. I love when I hear them "peeping":::as you know they are my favorite bird!! We DO have some beautiful birds here too though. TTY soon. Love you. Jo Momma!! XOXO
