For a very long time I’ve wanted to make a quilt during the 12 days of Christmas.
Do you remember that the 12 Days of Christmas are actually the 12 days AFTER Christmas (not leading up to) that mark the time between Jesus being born & the Three Wise Men finding him?
A few days ago (amidst all my Christmas prepping…) I designed a cute little quilt & now that Jesus’ birthday has been celebrated with Christmas Eve Mass, family, gifts, food & lots & lots of fun, (not to mention, cooking, cleaning, shopping, wrapping…) I’m ready to sew!!!
Care to join me???
I’m making a 12″ quilt… or pillow… or maybe even both!
There will be VERY
& I will reveal them to you here,
1 day at a time.
The 12th day will be the assembly & completing of the quilt (or pillow).
Ready to start?
First, you’ll need to select some fabrics.
Fabrics the colors of Christmas are going to be my choice,
there’s no reason you can’t use any fabrics your heart desires.
(No. You may not come over & use my Thimbleberries stash!)
Let me reiterate,
it’s a 12″ quilt or pillow,
scraps that you love will do!
Hint & Spoiler alert:
There’s going to be 1, just 1,
Tiny Dresden plate, but don’t let that scare you.
For now, go collect some fabrics
& iron them with some Mary Ellen’s Best Press
then meet me back here later today.
Just Keep Sewing…

Will be looking forward to seeing what you’ve made.
You’re just going to watch? Quilting isn’t a spectator sport! lol

Lol, It was lots of fun collecting those wasn’t it?!
I’m in…off for the next week so this may be doable for me. Going to be fun.
Hmmmm …. I love little mysteries.
As for the 12 days of Christmas, yes, I knew that. It ends with Epiphany and we always keep all our decorations up and house lights on until then. That’s why we don’t put up the tree until about a week before Christmas just so we’ll be ready for the Day.
I keep our decorations up ’til Epiphany too, but we put them up right after Thanksgiving. I love having them up all through Advent.
This might be fun!
Sure to be!!!
