The Nativity No. 2

My FIRST ever item posted on ArtFire.  What fun!



This is a stylized version of the Nativity, completed as a paper-pieced quilted wall-hanging.  Perfect for smaller spaces, it's only 15 inches wide x 14.5 inches tall.  The smallest pieces in the quilt are less than 1/4 inch.




Machine-pieced and machine-quilted, using 100% cotton fabric, using cotton and poly-cotton thread.



The background fabric is dark black marbled with a bit of purple, and meander quilted (free motion) with stars as details above the stable.  Hand-dyed muslin (with tea) creates a nice skin tone for the Nativity family members. Includes metallic gold thread quilted embellishments around the star and the manger, and variegated and black bobbin thread (on the back).



I include my initials and the date completed on all my projects, usually on the lower right corner of the back (and usually quite small).



The wall-hanging is complete with a hanging sleeve, sash rod in the sleeve, and hanging hardware (2 hooks with 4 nails).  Also included are care and handling instructions.

 

I don't have a professional photography studio, but have tried to take some good representative photos.
