Blue Nativity Quilt Mostly Finished

Voila! I figured if anyone was showing a family member the blog world, I'd like to be known for actually finishing the quilting on this Christmas quilt. My brother-in-law astutely pointed out that I made this LAST year. Thank you, Chris. I had the embroidered panel done at a local store, and it was not finished until 12/24/07. Makes it difficult to squeeze in that last 10 hours of hand quilting and binding before hanging it in 11/07.

But, Lord, willing, I will put the binding and hanging sleeve on this and have it finished for decorating 11/08!!

Hope your holidays are filled with wonderful memory-making moments.

That is gorgeous! I know how you feel- I finally finished my mother-in-law's birthday/christmas gift, a quilt with my children's photos on it. I hand-pieced and hand-quilted it and it seemed to take forever! I hope you are feeling better!ex

Beautiful quilt Joan. Great idea to outsource the machine embroidery. Take care of that cold.
