Twelve Days of Christmas


Here are  all twelve blocks for the Twelve Days of Christmas quilt from 
Temecula Quilt Co   I wonder what we are going to do with them?
I have lot's of fabric left and am anxious to see how the finished quilt will look.
This was my first experience making little 3 inch blocks and one of the things I learned is the smaller the block the more accurate your cutting and sewing needs to be.  I had the most trouble with block #11.  It's still a little larger than the others but I finally just gave up.

I am starting to rethink Building Houses from Scraps.  Those little houses are only 3 inches.  I think I will enlarge the pattern.
Happy Stitching,
Nancy

I was on holiday and got nine of the blocks done, hope to finish the other three this weekend. I love the fabrics the you have chosen for your "12 days of Christmas.

Jenneke has also created a "paper pieced" pattern for the little house from scrap block, that one looks to be much easier.

Can't wait to see your finished quilt. Have a great week.
