This is the Nativity quilt that I have been working on for a while. A friend of mine started it several months back by having the idea, enlarging the pattern and choosing the fabrics. I was helping her with the process. Then she decided she wasn't going to get to it and asked me if I'd like to do it. I thought that was a great idea. I've had a lot of fun with it.
I outlined the main pieces on a piece of interfacing. Then I cut the fabric to fit and ironed it on. It was a lot of cutting and ironing.
I then cut very narrow strips of a fusible black fabric that I used for the outline, etc.
I had some fuzzy fabric for the sheep.
This is now hanging in our church vestibule.
And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against; (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed."
Luke 2. 34,35
