"A Blessed Day" Wall Hanging quilt

Hi everyone!

I hope you are all doing well. I finished the binding on my little Christmas wall hanging. I decided to call it "A Blessed Day", seeing that we were so blessed to have Mary give birth to baby Jesus and that Joseph was there to support and love them through it all. I still need to put a hanger on the back of it, so that it hangs properly. I just did some simple machine quilting. I only have my old machine and my walking foot to work with. I didn't really want to hand quilt it. Thanks for the comments about the border. I decided that a simple dark blue border would tie everything together nicely. This quilt is 15 inches square. Such a great size for a wall hanging. Well, I hope you like it!!!

Hugs

I love it! I like the way that Daddy is involved in holding the baby (what a progressive Joseph)! I like the hand stitching on it as well, so pretty! Great design Ariane! So glad to see these original works from my creative little sister! Yippee!!!!
