Q21 – Quilt – Christmas Day


Today's quilt is the last of our Christmas quilts made for this year. We call it Christmas Day. The two incorporated techniques of strip-quilting and scrap work remind me of the morning of Christmas day after the presents all around the tree have been opened. This is a very thick and warm quilt as we made it with four layers instead of a norm of three. That is, the top, a layer of muslin, the batting, and the backing. The strips of Christmas scrap work, fabric, are first sewn to the muslin layer. It is then placed together with the backing and the batting to form the quilt sandwich.

Dimensions: Length - 90 ½" (230 cms); Width – 55 ½" (141 cms). This is most definitely a holiday accent quilt, but it will guarantee to keep you warm.

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 Q21. 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 Q22. Three quilts and three new series on the way.
