Nativity Quilt

I made this quilt for my brother and sister-in-law.  None of it is pieced - this is all applique - which is a deviation from what I usually do (I love pieced stars!).  It is a remake of a large quilt in a church - we found a kit on a popular website.  I cut out pieces via fusible web and then I ironed in place to the quilt top.  Then I sandwiched and quilted.  I decided to use a blanket stitch around all pieces that look like stones.  I used gold metallic thread around halos to add some sparkle to the quilt.  It took forever to quilt - slow going.  But one of my favorite pieces that I've done to date.

Kristin this is absolutely gorgeous.  I am sure your brother and his wife will love it.  Are the Stones appliqued too or just one piece that you embroidered the stone outlines onto?

Amazing.  I think I would be afraid to tackle this but it turned out wonderful.
