Nativity Wall Hanging {Quilt}

 When I made the Nativity Auction Tree Skirt last November, I had an extra Nativity scene sitting around.  I couldn't very well toss the work of Kindergartners that worked super hard on it, so I came up with the idea to make a "mini" for the teacher.  And the room mom and I must have been on the same page, because she asked me if I minded making one for her as an end of the year teacher gift.

This time, since I knew it wasn't going to be "used" like a tree skirt, I appliqued the figures right on the background without the black felt edge.

I meant for it to be a "mini" but it was hard not to crowd all the figures.  I definitely eliminated the "town" a few less palm trees to make room!

 I used all the same fabrics, including backing and binding.  Made a sleeve at the upper back that blended in with the backing in case the teacher decided to use it as a table runner or whatever she desired.

 Quilt Stats:
 Measures:  20"x 52"
Pattern: none
Fabric: Kona Parchment, Kona Brown, Northcott Christmas Reindeer Prance, 
Henry Glass Beige Baroque, Moda Swirl
Thread: Omni Thread Natural Linen by Superior Threads
Quilted: Free motion on HQ Avante
I think it was very much appreciated.
 I'm so glad to have been able to use more of the kids' artwork!
