Q59 – Christmas Quilt – Isle of The Misfit Toys


Here’s the second quilt, Isle of The Misfit Toys, of our PJs & Packages Series. (Photo: © Classic Media)

Once again this is an original design, sort-of. It is based, and a variation on the tried and true quilt block, Whirlwind.

And why, Isle of The Misfit Toys? Obviously, Rudolph, but when cutting the squares of the PJ fabric some of the toys suffered a wee bit of incidental amputations. (See my July 27 Quip.) The composition of the overall quilt provides that instance of completion and satisfaction.

Our Isle of The Misfit Toys, second in the PJs & Packages Series has the dimensions: Length – 79” (200.7 cms); Width – 71 ½” (181.6 cms).

And here are some close-ups and images of the backing.

Stay tuned for Christmas Packages I, Christmas Packages II, and Moon Racer. Check out earlier My Quips for additional information. All fabric used in the PJs and Packages Series was obtained from

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.
