Cardinals

Cardinals are a treat for our eyes, they say when you see a Cardinal it is a reminder of a long gone loved one reminding us of them. Make one of the two patterns provided using simple fusing techniques. In this fusing class Frieda will teach you new easy transfer techniques and raw edge fusing fun so you will achieve beautiful effects. This is the quilt you want hanging on your wall to cheer you this spring.
