    We just watched the Tim Allen/Jamie Lee Curtis Christmas movie where Danny Divito wants his house so lit up it can be seen from space, remember that one? Well, in their entrance hall is hanging a red and white quilt made entirely it looks like of half square triangles!!! I nearly came off the couch. Does anyone recognize the pattern or the designer, or is it just one of those old ones that's been around forever? I would love to make this quilt, might be able to figure it out from looking at it but Oh So Nice to have a pattern!
    Thanks so much, and have a brilliant Season.

    I don't think I have seen that movie...but you can bet I will be watching for the quilt if it comes on :D:D:D
    Isn't it funny, that once you get interested in quilts, you see them in a lot of shows, movies and advertisements :D:D:D

    The name of the movie is "Christmas with the Kranks." Seen it as couple of times, I can picture the quilt in my mind, but, that's as far as I get...no name...sorry!

    Since I started quilting, I see quilts in movies all the time. I love that stylists include quilts so often. I wish someone would compile a list of those movies. This is all I could find: http://quiltflapper.blogspot.com/200...in-movies.html

    The movie with Tim Allen/Jaimie Lee Curtis is "Christmas with the Cranks. The movie with Danny DeVito/Matthew Broderick is "Deck the Halls". Don't remember seeing the quilt though. Sorry.

    Merry Christmas all.

    I think you are getting your movies mixed up. The one you are talking about was just on recently and it was called Deck the Halls. Mathew Broderick played Danny DeVitos neighbor. Boy, you are observant, I did not see the quilt. Now I have to watch for another showing so I can see it.

    The quilt we are talking about is not in that movie. It's in the other one.

    Thanks so much, kwhite, I'm in love with red & white and have seen this quilt somewhere before, but couldn't put my finger on it. Now I've got to see that movie over the holiday!
    Thanks again,
    Kind Regards,
    MaryAnna

    I love to look for quilts in old movies, and in movies set in olden periods. Once you start looking, it's amazing how many you see. And recogize the pattern of!

    Runaway quilt novel talks about a quilt called birds in the air, it was used as a way to give slaves directions to their next safe house. The pattern is very similar.
