The vibrant Cardinal Bird has long been a favorite bringing joy to many hearts, and for centuries the appearance of the dogwood’s blossom has promised “rebirth” or “life.” A lovely combination of bird and flower, this watercolor quilt offers many uses… It works well as a runner for the center of the table while entertaining. It can grace an entry table as a first impression expression! It can add a conversation piece to a sofa table or coffee table. It will soften a bedroom dresser. Or could be used use as colorful bed runner! It may made into a stunning wall hanging, front door decor, or a as counter liner. Sooo many choices for use and easy to make.

The birds may be placed as shown for the center of a dinner table, or made to face one another by simply reversing one bird pattern before cutting, or they may be positioned any direction on the background, such as at the ends of the runner, for a more symmetrical look. Designed by Mim Schlabach. Finished size is 31.5″ x 12″ without border (border available).
