A few Christmases back I made this quilt https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=141445.msg1391119#msg1391119 here of the 3 wisemen for my mom. She collects nativity scenes and went nutty when she found out that the same company created a complimentary quilt to go with the 3 wisemen. Needless to say, here is her gift from THIS Christmas. She really liked it and hung it up next to the other almost immediately!
I did the majority of the quilting on my mother-in-law's long arm machine, but the metallics I did on my own. I don't recommend metallic thread, even though it looks beautiful--it snaps at the most inconvenient of times...
I am happy with the overall results though!









the back ( I put a label on after, but forgot the picture):


Thanks for looking!  Smiley

WOW! Great work!

did you applique the figures on or did you iron them on and satin stitch around them?

I really like the ornament fabric on the back, where did you pick that up at?

thanks! they are ironed on and satin stitched around. i came back and did the quilting with metallics on the characters after the main quilting was finished.

i love that ornament fabric too. i bought alot of extra for who knows what? i found it at our local hobby lobby.

If I could remember my password for my wists, this would be wisted! I love both quilts. They're absolutely gorgeous! I collect nativity sets too. Where can I get these patterns?

thank you! i found the wisemen pattern on the company's website here:

for some reason it wouldn't let me in to look at the patterns right now though...
we saw the nativity pattern at the local quilt shop one day on a visit, so they are out there waiting!

Both quilts are amazing and they do compliment each other very nicely!
I agree that metallic thread loves to break at the most inconvenient times!

It is lovely!  You quilted with the metallic thread?  Even more impressive!  It breaks on me if I just look at it!
