Christmas Quilt Show



I have a couple of Christmas quilts I made in the past two years and had a hard time deciding which to show. So I decided to start with this one and then show another one another day.

I'm not sure who the designer is for this quilt. I saw a picture on a website and adapted it to fit my wants.

I made this quilt totally scrappy. I used bits and pieces of many different fabrics.
One of the most important blocks, of course, is the baby Jesus laying in the manger.

This was a fun quilt to make and one of my first attempts at machine applique. I also used my embroidery machine to add the "words" of Christmas--Joy, Peace. Love, Grace, Hope, Joy, Mercy and Kindness.

These pictures were from last year, as I have put them out for the holiday season yet.

Be sure to drop by SewCalGal to see other great holiday quilts.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!
