12 x 14 inches
The Temecula Quilt Company seems to specialize in mini quilts. Even though I am not a fan of working with such tiny bits of scraps, I hope to complete the monthly mini featured on the calendar cards I purchased in December.
Do you like to create miniatures?

|12 Days of Christmas|
16 x 20
Temecula hosted the 12 Days of Christmas QAL again in December 2014, which jogged my memory of the completed blocks stashed somewhere in my sewing room.
In early January 2015, Bonnie challenged her blog readers to spend 15 minutes each week to tidy their sewing rooms. I took the challenge and began bringing some semblance of order to the chaos: I sorted patterns, folded and stored fabric, cleaned off my cutting table, found UFOs, and cut scraps into manageable sizes. It was in this fury of activity that I found the mini blocks and decided to finish this project.
Last weekend, I selected the sashing and border fabrics, sewed the top together, patched some batting scraps, machine quilted and added binding to the mini.
Some of the blocks are wonky, and the quilting is not straight; however, it is finished. Despite this mini's glaring imperfections, I like it.
Do you have a UFO that you haven't finished because it isn't perfect?
