ON THE 12TH DAY OF CHRISTMAS

On the 12th Day of Christmas I decided to get busy and make all twelve blocks for the sew-along that Temecula Quilt Co. has been posting.
And I also made the six blocks for Lori's small quilt sew-along that she is hosting.  You can visit Lori at Humble Quilts for information about "Pink Lemonade".
A busy sewing day.  Now if I could get the "Just Takes 2" blocks done.  By the way.  This is my second post today.  You can take a peek at my Millennium Gardens quilt blocks progress in the previous post.

  1. You have been very active today. I keep intending to do the "12 Days" but it hasn't happened. I am going to do Lori's QAL. Your blocks look great!

  3. Enjoyed seeing your blocks for Lori's Quiltalong. They look real good! I wanted to make those blocks tonight also but can't find the right pink in my fabrics. Guess I'll work on my JustTakes2 blocks instead. Happy Sewing!

    I always admire your fabric choices! I actually stopped by Temecula today in my travels ;-)
    I'll do 11 and 12 tomorrow as Lori's blocks.
    Thank you for sharing!

  12. I still have day 12 to piece, but it won't take long. Looking at your blocks, I'm thinking about taking on Pink Lemonade. I NEED a new project like a I need a hole in the head . . . . but since when did that ever stop me?

  13. I'm doing Lori's QAL, too. Your blocks look great. I saw the 12 days blocks and they look like a fun easy project. I just might have to join in on that one too.

  15. I really should stop visiting you! LOL
    OR... we could have your energy bottled and go into business.

    I use to tease Crazy'boutquilts that she had "house elves" working for her.... they must be at your house, too!

    Pink Lemonade is a new one to me... might have to look. OH, NO!

    Signed on to the Just Takes 2 but need to find fabric.
    Thanks, Karen!
