Q69 - Christmas Quilt - OP Nöel I


And before I settle in to make our contribution to tomorrow’s Thanksgiving feast, I thought that we had better post our latest quilt addition to ourOP Nöel Series. Ladies and gentlemen, our newest quilt, OP Nöel I.

OP Nöel I is our original design, and as you can see it is of similar festive and holiday fabrics as Nöel Diptych, OP Nöel II, Not Til D25, and OP Angel. OP Angel has found a new home in Seffner, Florida.

The geometric pattern design of OP Nöel I is identical to that of Starry Nights, squares in parallel lines. And once again in the glorious sunshine I have taken images of OP Nöel I. The top is composed of two fabrics; Peace Love Faith of MMFab, Inc. and a solid Burgundy Red compliment. The backing is Tone on Tone Maize fabric blend.

The dimensions of OP Nöel I are: Width – 57” (144.8 cms) and Length – 70 ½” (179.1 cms). The quilting is a series of parallel lines three-quarters of an inch apart, comprised of 53,400 stitches. The binding is Tone on Tone Maize and is hand-stitched the complete distance of the border.

Here are some images of close ups and the backing.

Please remember that the actual shades and tones of the colors may or may not appear as clear and 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 or in red, 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 check our Quilts SB Etsy shop.

Stay tuned for our new quilts – OP Ornament. Check out our recently announced Christmas Quilt sale and discounts. As mentioned above, OP Angel, as well as Isle of The Misfit Toys are on their way to their new homes in Florida.
