My new favorite quilt!Nativity Quilt finished! I love each of the little figures in it. This goes wonderfully with all of the Nativities I have collected - that is my Christmas theme. I don't have anything against Santa and his elves, but I don't want my family to forget what this wonderful season is really about! I think that is one of the things I love about quilts so much, they are so versatile in technique, color, pattern and meaning! You can celebrate or express just about anything with a quilt.
I really like the poinsettia fabric with the black background. I don't have any leftover selvage scraps to tell me what the name of this fabric is, but I sure would love some more for some throw pillows!
I am so excited for this season to finally be here. I always feel anxious to get everything ready so I can enjoy things. My shopping is pretty much done, decorating - mostly done. I do have some more sewing and a lot of baking to do. Let the holidays begin!
