Default Paper-pieced NATIVITY wall hanging finally finished!

It took 8 months, but paper-piecing was new to me. A friend made this & when I saw it I knew I
had to make it too. This Nativity wall hanging pattern is by Paper Panache & is about 36x32 inches.
I also learned to FMQ with clear thread (to disguise my flaws). The Scripture was embroidered by
Dawn from this QB & she also made the label for me.pict0130.jpg
