First Sunday in Advent

The Advent parament was dedicated in church this morning,
It all started with a star, and built from there...
The dimensional patchwork went together slowly, one piece at a time.
It was layered with wool batting.
The quilting helped further emphasize the dimension achieved in the patchwork.
The fine threads are Wonderfil's "Invisifil", a 100 weight filament.
An angel was added after the quilting was complete and highlighted with silver metallic and holographic threads.
It's a lot of patchwork in a small space;  the piece measures only 20-1/4" w x 24" l.
