Q18 - Quilt - Christmas Holly & Coins

Christmas is a-comin', the goose is gettin' fat,
Please put a penny in the poor-man's hat!

Afternoon. Just take a gander, (sorry...) at the counter at the bottom of my posting today.

And just think you can get a Christmas quilt... but not this one. This one is already taken and is in a collection. But I can say that it has two other sister quilts, very similar and of the same design. The Christmas fabrics are somewhat different. And of course the actual image files are on my "to-be-fixed hard drive". But the actual sister quilts are here in the house.

This quilt is Christmas Holly & Coins.

The pattern is a variation of an old quilting pattern Stacked Coins. When designing these sister quilts I wanted the stack of coins to also trigger thoughts of stacked presents. Successful? Maybe.

Dimensions: Length, 87½ inches (222 cms); Width, 70 inches (178 cms).

Thanks to B & J for the pictures.

To see previously posted quilts, type any Q# coding in the search box at the upper left-hand on my Blog page; to date Q1 through Q17. I have also created a new visual presentation at the bottom of my blog page. Move your cursor over any mini-picture found there and click to see an enlargement. Move your cursor to the "Q#" link to see the quilt’s details.

If you are interested, and would like some more information of the available quilts, regarding costs, shipping, and insurance, please get in touch with me at our Quilts SB Etsy shop.

Stay-tuned for Q19, more borrowed and original designs, and series.
