Sharon R.

Create a quilted cardinal wall hanging designed by Sharon in bright red, white and green fabrics. 

This wall hanging is 27” x 27”.  You will use a technique created by Sharon to make the bird wing appear as in fight.  To create the legs can use a zigzag stitch, hand embroider or applique.  You need to pre-cut fabrics before class in order to complete the cardinal in class and learn how to piece the borders. These instructions are given at time class for which the class is paid.  If learning to create the thread trees please see the supply list. Pine cones and rhinestones are optional.
