The central part is surrounder by pieced borders. The upper border is 4" wide, while the lower, right and left borders are 3" wide. The upper border consists of 4" x 4" blocks, all other borders consist of 3" x 3" blocks featuring different stars and nine-patches.
The largest 4" x 4" star symbolizes the Star of Bethlehem..
The first border is surrounded by the 1" wide red border. The outer border is 3" wide.
The wall hanging is quilted in free-motion style with golden metallic thread.
