A few years ago, I saw this pattern at the AQS show in Grand Rapids, and immediately thought of my friend, Nancy. Nancy has a wonderful collection of creches, which our sewing guild has enjoyed at her home during several Christmas parties.
Nancy completed the quilt this fall, and I quilted it. I think it’s just lovely.
I followed the directions that came with the pattern for the quilting. The quilting really needed to be secondary to the piecing and applique work. The infant’s blanket is pieced, then appliqued in place. The quilting really plays that up.
