The fabric for this cardinal series was designed by Rosalind Solomon for Elizabeth’s studios.
There are 4 panels depicting the four seasons. The winter birds are perched on a snowy fir tree. Autumn birds are flying amid fall leaves. Summer birds have clusters of ripe berries. Spring birds are in a nest with blossoms. There are a pair in each beautiful scene.
Cardinals are really special to me and my sisters. I see them a lot out here and was so happy to find this special fabric. I have used it up.
The borders useed up the rremaining red shibori fabric I had. Feather stitching around all four panels and borders.
Shibori fabric is dyed using a Japanese technique that creates accordion folds of color gradations. This fabric was designed by Paula Nadelstern and is among the softest I have ever felt. It is no longer made so I use it in special projects.
There is a red braided tie for use with a birch dowel inserted into a sleeve sewn on the back
The colors are the greens and reds of the holidays and cardinals are such a bright spot in the winter
A nice addition to your holiday decorations or for use in all four seasons !
