Twelve Days of Christmas


I've been doing this "mini" mystery offered by Temecula Quilt Co, and today was the reveal.  Each block is only 3", and each day corresponded to the days of the song -- on the first day, the block had one piece; on the second day, two pieces, etc. This was such a clever idea!  

My little top is 20" x 23".  I used the scraps from my Civil War Christmas quilt.  I'll slowly work at hand quilting it, and will have a new little quilt all done for next year's holiday season.

I'm enjoying the idea of doing little doll quilts -- they're quick and don't require much fabric.  Lots of inspiration at author Kathleen Tracy's SmallQuiltTalk Yahoo group if you're so inclined.

I'm hoping to get the sashing and borders on mine tomorrow.

Thanks for sharing.

Jeanne, your little quilt came out great. I used my CW stash scraps too. Hopefully I can get the sashing and borders on this weekend. Maybe I will hand quilt it.
