Away in a Manger top finished!!


Hooray! The top is finished for the quilt I am making for the NICU hallway at St. John's Mercy Medical Center in suburban St. Louis. My "applique fatigue" is fading away as I have been hand quilting it. It will measure 34" x 40".
I think it's kind of hard to see in the picture, but the outer border is 4" wide and is a woodgrain. I'm pretty pleased with the "dirt" fabric I found, too! It even looks like it has some hay scattered around on it.

Thank you, Debi! I think the chaplain is going to like it and hope the parents of the tiny babies will get some strength from it.
