Christmas quilt progress


I have been having great fun making fabric for this quilt.  I am using center pieces from the inspiration shirt for each 6.5" block of made fabric.  I couldn't resist the red and white when I found it in my red stash.  It makes a perfect frame for the Virgin.  I thought I would try using the paisley with just a sliver at the top, wider on the other three sides.  Being stubborn about using only what I have makes this all the more interesting.  Right now, this is 30" square.  I have already started making more fabric blocks to make it larger.  Not sure when it will stop growing.
