For Unto Us a Child is Born

This is the Nativity quilt that I have been working on for a while.  A friend of mine started it several months back by having the idea, enlarging the pattern and choosing the fabrics.  I was helping her with the process.  Then she decided she wasn't going to get to it and asked me if I'd like to do it.  I thought that was a great idea.  I've had a lot of fun with it.

 I outlined the main pieces on a piece of interfacing.  Then I cut the fabric to fit and ironed it on.  It was a lot of cutting and ironing.

 I then cut very narrow strips of a fusible black fabric that I used for the outline, etc.

 I had some fuzzy fabric for the sheep.

 This is now hanging in our church vestibule.

And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against;  (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed."
Luke 2. 34,35

Sheri's Quilts

Go Hawks!  Around here we are Seahawks fans.  And so is Sheri, my customer.  She made 2 Seahawks quilts that she's giving for Christmas.
 The front is the right colors.

 I quilted footballs all over it.  Some of them are a little funny in shape.

 The back tells anyone who doesn't know, what team you are rooting for.

It's Getting Cold!

It does get cold sometimes in the Pacific Northwest.  And it has been lately.  I made this lovely cowl for my daughter for her birthday, just in time for the cold. It may help.  It is lightweight, fingering yarn with a lacey look, so it may not be real warm but it does add some class to what you wear.

 This is knitted with a Knitpicks wool.  The color is very sweet.

My Ravelry link is here.

For the Prize Box

I think I'll keep making things for the little girls prize box.  They seem to like them a lot.  This is a cute little bag, very easy to do.

 You can find the tutorial on this site.

 It probably took me about an hour to do it.  The hardest part is finding the coodinating fabrics amongst my scraps. It's even lined.  I think they should like it.
