Mystery Quilt-Along

Another 12 Days of Christmas Mystery Quilt-Along, Day 1

Welcome to Day 1!

Are you ready to sew your way to the Epiphany with me?

Delve into the scrap bag.

The first blocks we’re going to make are my Tiny Trees.

I sewed just one this afternoon,

but we’ll need to make 6 trees for Day 1 sewing.

They should measure 3 1/2″ x 5″.

You’ll need 3 fabrics for each tree.

You can use the same 3 fabrics for all the trees or make each one different.

I plan to make each of mine different.

I’m going scrappy.

I made a PDF of the instructions with templates

in case you don’t already own my Tiny Tree Template Set #286.

If you’d like to purchase the template set

you can find them on my website by clicking here.

Click the link below to bring up the PDF.

Be sure the 1″ square prints out exactly 1″ for the templates to be the proper size.

I hope you enjoy making tiny trees as much as I do!

When you get your tiny trees made please share them with us on my Facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/SewingWithSusan

I hope to be back tomorrow with Day 2 blocks.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Just Keep Sewing…

Mystery Quilt-Along

Another 12 Days of Christmas Mystery Quilt-Along

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

It has been the most peculiar Christmas season ever around here.

I’ve been laying low for the past 24 days due to COVID19.

No shopping, no wrapping, no Christmas cards sent.

No big family hosted dinner & no sewing.

I feel like the Grinch!

Although I’m still not 100%,

it’s nice to finally care about something today.

I cooked real food!

I also feel like thinking about the 12 Days of Christmas quilt I designed last month that I had envisioned starting with you here today.

I’ve not started cutting & sewing, but I have decided on what fabrics I will use.

Scraps!

These are scraps I bought from our guild’s auction

well over a year ago

from the estate of one of our guild’s charter members.

Her family donated her quilt stash & supplies to us.

Aren’t these lovely?

I can’t wait to get started.

Want to join me for 12 daily bits of sewing fun?

The quilt measures 23” x 27 1/2”.

There will be houses, trees, cars & a few Tiny Dresden plates too.

You can use Christmas fabrics

or a collection

or scraps like I’m using.

It’s going to be a fun little project & you’ll love it!

Please bear with me while I get started.

Just Keep Sewing…
