This lovely book features detailed information on how to make the moving and symbolic quilt on the cover, as well other holiday projects like placemats, a tree skirt, wall quilts, and a mantel decoration. But back to that cover quilt, "The Adoration." These are not your typical blocks! See how there are triangle and parallelogram blocks surrounding the center rectangle? That’s thinking outside the square! Rachel tells you exactly how to go about it. Along the way you’ll appliqué angels, shepherds, sheep, stars, magi, camels, and the nativity scene. It reminds me of how we used to set up what we called "the crèche" when we were kids. There’s information on prepared-edge and raw-edge appliqué methods and how to achieve the finer details. There are also a bunch of side tips sprinkled throughout the pages. Some of them provide food for thought on how we should slow down and remember the reason for the season.
