Christmas Quilt

This is my foyer this Christmas season. I finally finished and hung the blue nativity quilt. I've had some write and ask where the pattern came from. It is a commercial pattern, but I can't find it to see what the name is or the publisher. I changed it from the original just a bit. There were supposed to be small stars down both sides and across the bottom. I just added more blue squares and the embroidered panel across the bottom to give glory to the King! I also wanted the center star to be more prominent. I'm not sure you can see it in the picture, but I quilted rays coming from the baby's head and an "X" in each of the squares. This was my first needle-turn applique project. I liked doing this a lot.

Here's a close-up. The colors aren't as bright as they look in this picture.

Focus on the real meaning of Christmas this season.

Love that mixture of blues. The little quilt around your small tree is precious too. Such a nice setting.
