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.

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!

Melody said...

Wonderful stitching. You are so good with your colours.

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!

Dawn said...

Great progress on your M. Garden.
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!

Lovely small blocks! I especially like the way you used four different darks for the last one. Very clever!! And your Pink Lemonade blocks are looking nice with pink background!!

Another productive day for you! I am so curious to see how the Temecula mystery quilt turns out. Gonna love your Pink Lemonade.

Busy day. I just posted my 12 blocks on my blog too. Your blocks look fantastic. Cannot wait to see what the setting will be for this. It was fun to do.

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?

Lori said...

Beautiful blocks!

Julie in the Barn said...

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.

Diane said...

cute cute blocks...your sewing machine must be exhausted!

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!

Love your 12 days of Christmas. I have been tempted, and may still make them. Like others, I may have to take a look at pink lemonade. Your blocks look so good.

You have a great start for the new year. Your blocks are great.
