Cardinal in the Pines Started!

Over the weekend, I was working on a new quilt project, called Cardinal in the Pines.  I picked up this quilt kit in April at Hingeley Road Quilt Shop in Minnesota, while I was visiting my good friend Jean.  She feel in love this quilt, she loved the Cardinals in it.  So, I'm making this up for her.  This quilt top has been a challenge do to the way the instructions are written up. But I have made good progress. 

The quilt top is made up of 2 different blocks with fussy cut Cardinals in the middle of each block. 

When I finished the assembly of all the blocks, I realized that I had made one error in the all, which the green and red checkboard half squares were in the wrong corners.  Once I placed all the blocks up on the design wall, I realized it would not make a big difference in the whole quilt top.

I just have 4 more blocks to make, but I need more of the black vine fabric to do so, which I ordered Sunday night.  Then I can add 2 more rows on this quilt top and then borders.  

Almost done with this one, hoping to have done by Thanksgiving, so far it looks like I will be done way before.
