Nativity Quilt

I think I am finally at the end of this quilt. All that is left is the binding. It has been a long journey but so worth it. This is one of the biggest projects of this kind I have made. I love paper piecing and have done several smaller quilts but this was really very detailed. Just the choosing of all the fabrics was a daunting task. It was a rather long time between choosing the fabrics and sewing. We moved among other things. So... as I was sewing I decided to change some of them. So it just added to the stress. I wanted it to be just right. This will be a family heirloom. My oldest daughter has already claimed it. I just want to see it over my fireplace this Christmas!
