Christmas quilt, created 2010 for personal use. I created this pattern inspired by an old Christmas card. If I could find the original artist and get permission, I'd love to make this pattern available to others. It was not difficult to make, just took some time. Our church quilt group made a larger version. Mine is about 36" square. The one for the church is in three panels and nearly seven feet!

Oh WOW!  If I didn't know this was a quilt, I would have thought "Beautiful stained glass window".  You have great patience to complete a project like this  KUDOS!!!

I, too, say WOW! Beautiful color selection and scale. The message of the title and the quilt itself tell the wonderful story.

This is just wonderful.  I only wish I could do something like this and I probably have the time.  Did you have a pattern for this?  If not you are very gifted.

Awesome and words can't really say what I feel when looking at this quilt. Wish it was mine!!! You are an awesome quilter. Did you have a pattern or did you design this all by yourself. I have never seen anything like it before. Brenda

Thank you for sharing your beautiful tribute to our Lord.  It is the prettiest, most awesome, quilted nativity I've ever seen - a winner in more ways than one.

I finally got on line and noticed all the comments on my nativity quilt. No, the pattern is not commercial but of my own doing. It is very similar to an old Christmas card. If I could find the original artist and get permission, I'd love to make this pattern available. So many have asked for it. Our small group of quilters in our church made a larger version (3 panels, nearly 7 feet wide) and it too has been the object of "Can I get the pattern?"

My email is epm.mail.444@gmail.com so if you are really interested, drop me a note and I will keep trying to get a release on that copyright!

Happy New Year,

Elsie

Nice quilt.  If you change the image enough you can go ahead and publish it.  I suggest you do some research to see what you need to do to make the image your own.  You can use copyrighted images for inspiration.  You may even find out that they took their design from an older source.
