Nativity Quilt Finish and the June House

A little over a year ago I began this Nativity Quilt as you can see here.  I ran into problems quilting it with metallic thread.  Fortunately, I got a  link and advice from Sharon of Vroomans' Quilts, and eventually I used Sewer's Aid, a thread stand, and I also got some Magic Bobbin Genies. All of these combined were the ticket and today I finished the quilting, got the binding on and sewed on a hanger.



Love this finish. 

I stitched the June House.  I can't sew a straight line but love those birds and charming houses.  

God Bless!

I am so happy everything worked and you now have a lovely finish. Oh, all those hand stitches just blend into a pretty block - so cute!

The Nativity quilt looks absolutely gorgeous and well done with sticking to the metallic thread and giving it a go. Another cute house stitchery. Take care.
