Cardinal Red Star Quilt - A finish and a winner!

This quilt has been quilted for awhile, but I was waiting to blog about it until I had the label on it and until it was entered into the viewer's choice Star Quilt Challenge at the end of season dinner of the Mayflower Quilters' Guild.  I still don't have the label on it.... but the Star Quilt Challenge was last night and I won first place and a gift certificate to a local quilt chain!!!  Now I will have to be sure to make a label and include that information as well.

Third place was this lovely batik quilt:


Second place was this colourful New York Beauty quilt:


First place was my quilt which I designed myself:


Here is a full view of it which shows a bit more of the texture.


And a close up of one of the fussy cut cardinal blocks.  I fussy cut the large blocks but not the small ones, although a lot of them did end up with a good portion of a cardinal on them as well.


Here is a close up of the quilting on the back so you can see the details.  Of course, I had to quilt it with cardinals and used "Christmas Cardinal" by Sarah Ann Myers, digitized by Patricia E. Ritter.


I am linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday.
