This beautiful paper pieced quilt shows Mary and Jesus, lovingly holding her newborn son. The love between a mother and son is quietly captured in the design, as she gazes down at her sleeping infant.
In designing this quilt, I wanted to share those early tender moments after a mother snuggles with her newborn child. Mary’s arms circle around her child, protecting him and holding him close. She gazes down at him, and appears to be quietly offering a prayer of thanks for this small blessing.
The paper pieced design finishes at 24″ x 36″, making a large lap-sized quilt. Borders and sashing can be added to enhance the design, and printing the pattern at a larger (or smaller) scale give you limitless flexibility in making the design exactly the size you want.

Welcome to my corner. My name is Jen Frost. Faith and Fabric is my way of sharing projects I make in the hope that they inspire you be creative, too. I believe that there is something very personal in creating a beautiful item that reflects and retains a bit of you that wasn’t there before. I have loved creative projects for as long as I can remember, and find inspiration from both the everyday things around us. My faith is central to my family’s life and is often reflected in my work (and parenting. and relationships.). This is how Faith and Fabric was born. A desire to share my faith in a creative way – both the awesome projects and the mistakes! – and learn from you. You’ll find lots of quilting and crafting ideas to celebrate your faith – as well as a few small business strategies, too.
A quick side-story? Our priest, a few years ago for Christmas, asked, “If your home were to be visited by someone who had never heard of Christmas before, would they think – based on your decor – that Christmas was a day celebrating snowmen? A large man in a red suit? Consumerism? Or the birth of Christ?” This resonated *so much* for our (ahem) snowman-heavy house. Since then, I’ve been inspired to make faith-focused projects – both fabric and not – for the home to help remind us throughout the year what we are celebrating.
Thanks for joining me on this adventure, and I’d love to partner with you along the way.
