It's Finished!! Hooray!! :)

This one is my husband's favorite.  The happy camel!! :D

I love to collect nativities!! This is one of the reasons I really wanted to make a nativity quilt.  Overall I'm happy with how it turned out.  I will be tweaking a couple of the patterns.  Just some minor changes I want to make.  

Here are some of my other favorite nativities I've collected over the years.  

I love this one! My sister, Helen, made this for me. It's made out of wool from old wool sweaters. So great!!

I absolutely love this one as well.  It has just about been my favorite one all these years.  years ago, when my son was in nursery at church, his nursery leader made it for him.  So little, soft and unbreakable for soft little hands! :)

We got this one in Peru when we went to pick up our son from his LDS mission. 

This one is also an all time favorite!! My really good friend, Mike Welch made this for me.  He carves a piece each year and sends it to me.  It means so much to me.  Mike and Sue's daughter, Lori, died of breast cancer a few years back.  She brought joy and laughter to everyone she met. She was so loved by everyone who knew her.  She was actually my very first inspiration for my rag quilts.  :)

I think seminary has been catching up to me lately.  I've been extra extra tired! I don't feel like I accomplish much during the day because I'm so tired.  A new quilt idea motivates me and I can usually push through the exhaustion, so that's good! :)  

I will post some new patterns in a few days.
