I got my 12 Days of Christmas top completed and quilted over the weekend.
It looks a little off, but it is the angle of the photo.
I set it differently than the mystery pattern called for. I didn’t have yardage of anything but some Moda Bella Snow that I keep in my stash. There isn’t yardage available yet of the Prairie Paisley II yet. The red binding is from the first line that I had a bit extra of.
The pieced border are 1/2” finished squares – to give you a scale of this quilt. The blocks are 3” finished.
I do want to come up with a new name for it though, it seems to me that it doesn’t scream “Christmas” to me.
Temecula Quilt Co. had a free Block of the Day for twelve days starting on Christmas Day. I watched as it grew interesting. Then I decided I wanted to play along. But one thing, my machine was not working and in the shop. I also wanted to do it in patriotic colors. I ordered a charm pack of Prairie Paisley II from eBay and they came in yesterday on Day 11.
Today, I got all the blocks done. Each block is onlly 3 1/2” inches square.
Here they are in order… notice a pattern?
Day 10 (sorry for the blurriness of the photo)
Each day, the number of the day correlates to the number of patches in the block. I also did not repeat a fabric in another block – so each fabric only appears in one block.
I am looking forward to seeing how they set these. The mystery will be revealed tomorrow (the 6th). It only took me about two hours to make all 12 blocks. I did re-make block 7 because at the end I noticed each of the blocks except that one had no fabric repeats, so I remade that block.
