No, this isn’t going to be a song by Hoobastank, but rather the reason for the season! I’m a believer, and love having Christmas to think about Jesus Christ and his birth. I even have a nativity set from Bethlehem, for heaven’s sake! If you’re not a believer, that’s okay too, just enjoy your holiday, and be grateful, like I am, for the feelings of good will and love of fellow man that occur this time of year!
Today’s quilts are Nativity quilts, the reason, of course! Lots of people have amazing talents in designing these gorgeous quilts, and I hope you enjoy them.
These first two are appliqué, and I love the stained glass look of the first one and the pieced blocks in the second one.
The next one is a very cool paper pieced nativity, and I love the scrappy, pieced stars around this cute nativity.
I love the pieced/appliqué combo in this next one, along with this wonderful and unique quilt with the trees.
Last are my Nativity quilts (technically, one quilt, one wall hanging.) The first one is embroidered, and I found a great blue fabric that looks like Jerusalem. I don’t have the pattern for the wall hanging anymore, but I still like it. I did it with a dear friend who collects nativities.
This is my Nativity set by Jim Shore (Mr. Quilt figurine dude.) It was given to me as a gift from the former owners of the quilt shop that I worked for. I love it.
Have a wonderful Christmas, and always remember the reason!
