Q64 - Christmas Quilts - OP Noel II


Number two Quilt – OP Noël II – of our OP Noël Series is completed, and available for your Christmas present.

The design of OP Noël II is quite simple. It is based on the construction of a square of six rectangles and using four fabrics. That’s it. There are 50 constructed squares; 18 half squares; and 4 quarter squares - the corners. The Optical Illusion design is succeeded by putting and sewing two exact squares perpendicular to each other. The binding and the backing are two of the four fabrics. The four fabrics can be seen at My Quip dated September 6.

The dimensions of OP Noël II are: Length – 73 ½” (186.7 cms) and Width – 63 ½” (161.3 cms). OP Noël II can be considered a lap quilt, small coverlet and accent, or it may be used as a holiday wall-hanging.

The following are images of close ups and the backing. Please remember that actual shades of the colors may not appear as sharp and as crisp in the images.

To see previously posted quilts, there is a visual grid presentation at the bottom of the Quilts SB 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 the quilt’s title is highlighted in yellow, it has found a home in a collection and is no longer available.

Please let me know if anything on the Blog site does not properly work, or do what it says it is supposed to do. I’m always striving to make sure an ease of use.

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.

We will be showing some of our quilts at the Cypress Creek Quilters’ Guild Show, As Your Garden Grow. The Show will be held at the USF Botanical Gardens on November 6th, 2010.

Stay tuned for our new quilts – P’nG and OP Angel.
