12 Days of Christmas

Twelve Days of Christmas
Mini Quilt Mystery
While many declare Christmas over and have taken down their decorations, it continues in my house until Epiphany. This year, I was happy to read about a Twelve Days of Christmas mini quilt mystery on several blogs, and I decided to join in the fun.

Above are my 3.5 inch (unfinished) blocks for days One thru Eight. Do you notice anything about the make-up of the blocks? Each block has the number of pieces for the day it represents, i.e. the eighth day block has eight pieces. These pieces are small - the center of the seventh block is a 1 1/8 inch square, making precise cuts and an accurate seam essential for uniform block size.

Christmas is not over yet, so it's not too late to join in the fun.


  1. What a fun way to celebrate the season!! I think I pity you for the last few though... ;) I never had great scissor skills.

  2. Day Twelve should be a challenge!

  3. I am going to have to check that out!!...

  4. Great looking quilt! I love that each day has the number of pieces for that day.

  5. Yes, you still have a few more days left of Christmas! Your quilt squares are beautiful. Lovely color combos :)

    happy new year :)

  6. Great idea that will be a beautiful quilt! I was thinking how much fun that would be to try right up to the "precision cuts and accurate seams" thing. I honestly couldn't do that!!

  7. Very fun way to keep the season alive for another week. It feels so over was an odd one for us. I LOVE your way of Keeping it going

  8. Great bunch of blocks..very pretty:)

  9. Glad you joined in on the fun. I agree with you -- Christmas isn't over until Epiphany! We didn't decorate a whole lot but the stuff won't be coming down until at least Friday.

    And, amazing "white elephant" gift indeed!
