Holiday Lights

Wayyyy back in 2005, I went to the Houston Quilt show and bought this beautiful pattern.  About every six months, I have taken it out.  Looked at it.  Dreamed of making it.  And the promptly put it back in my "quilts to make someday" list.

Then I had a vision.  A vision of a year without quilt presents for family and friends.  A year when I would only make things for myself.  I'm calling this my selfish phase.  And I'm loving it!!!

Trust me, a king size quilt is VERY time-consuming.   I get an A+ for selfishness!

This is the quilt I made for our stake's community nativity exhibit (the 4th year for this event).  The nativity panel was the inspiration for choice of border fabrics and for choice of quilting used throughout the entire quilt.  I wanted to use fabrics that would draw one's eye to the center of the nativity -- the Christ Child.  Cathy also accomplished this with her quilting.
