Q67 – Christmas Quilts – Not Til D25


I would like to present to you our newly completed Christmas quilt – Not Til D25. Not Til D25 is a special Christmas and Holiday Quilt that reminds me of the joy, and maybe for one with ten thumbs, the chore of wrapping presents.

I alluded to my explanation of the detailing and design of our new and original quilt in My Quip on Friday, October 15. The dimensions of Not Til D25 are: Width – 63” (160 cms) and Length – 78 ½” (199.4 cms). The colors of the fabrics are varying shades and tones of red, green, white, and beige.

As mentioned previously, Not Til D25 is based on a block pattern from Kumiko Sudo’s book “East Quilts West”. Our construction is made up of 160 rectangles, each with five varying sized cuts of fabric. The images of the Not Til D25 were taken on the top of a King size mattress.

At first glance Not Til D25 represents to me the confusion of the wrapping of presents. But on a closer inspection you can see that there are 160 matched, point-to-point small triangles that denote the set ribbons on the top of each wrapped package.

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

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.
