Christmas Nativity Pattern

After securing copyrights to use the original design as inspiration for this quilt, and after making a pattern and putting it on my Etsy site in January or thereabouts, I'm delighted to report that I've sold 72 patterns. I'm not sure what is normal for something like this, but for me, this is a blessing. Most of them went to the USA, but some to other parts of the world and to Canada of course. The link to my Etsy store is on this page.

The pattern is about 36" wide, but can be enlarged and made in three panels like this photo. This particular version is about 84" wide. The pattern is also available in digital files, which saves on postage but needs to be printed on a wide printer. A nearby Staples store does that for me.

I've asked those who purchased the pattern to send me a photo of their quilt when it is done. So far, nada, but I'm sure these quilters are at work on it. It is not difficult but does take lots of time. 

I'm hoping to offer more patterns soon. I've secured a copyright for an amazing design that needs to be altered to make it 'quiltable' and then I need to make a sample with directions. Lots of work, but it is neat to be able to do this.

Elsie, That is great news! And what fun you must be having to take designs and make them quiltable.

Hi Elsie! Few days ago I bought your pattern “when god became a man” and I ‘m so excited and can’t wait to start! But i have some doubts and I hope you can help me.
1. All the pieces are only taken in place by fusible web? No seams along the edges are required?
2. i cannot see on your work the quilting. Are possible quilting only the spaces out colored pieces?
3. Sorry for my bad english and thank you for your help. Have a happy 2021!
