12 Days of Christmas

I've started working on the mystery quilt from Temecula Quilt Shop, it's a very easy mini sampler. Super simple and easy for a after Christmas project. My bundle of fabrics arrived Dec 24th, just in time. You can find the free pattern here, it's not too late to get started.
 
Blocks 1 to 5 are finished, each day the number of pieces in the blocks has increased. I hope the 12th block doesn't have 12 pieces!
I thought I should introduce Fonzie, he is my daughters dog. She has been staying with us until she finds a place to rent. Fonzie is a really good obedient dog. It's been interesting keeping the cats and the dog apart. So far we've only had a couple chases through the house, mostly the cats running for cover when the dog comes in.

Happy Quilting.

Your blocks look wonderful.

I think there will definitely be 12 pieces in the 12th block! I haven't started yet, but hope to play catch up today. Thanks for showing all your blocks together. I'm going to be pulling from my scrap basket.

Fonzie looks like a sweetheart. Please give him some loving head scratches for me :-)
Love the fabrics you have for the mystery. It will be no 'surprise' when it turns out beautiful!

Fonzie~ what a great name! I can just imagine the chases. :-)

I've been watching the mystery, but haven't taken the plunge... yet. :-/ I think I'm waiting to see what that 12 piece block will look like. LOL

Have a happy day!

I am doing the 12 Days of Christmas project as well. I'm using a Kansas troubles charm pack- Wildflower Serenade II. I hadn't picked up on the pattern of the number of pieces matched the day number! DUH!

Fonzie sure is a cute dog!

I've joined in the Mystery too - I liked that it was small and so if I don't like my colour choices I can easily re-do a block --- and of course it's easy to keep up! I also hadn't picked up on the point that each day got more pieces - duh! I'm sure Fonzie is enjoying his holiday.

Hi Wendy. I bought the same quilt kit, but mine didn't arrive until yesterday, so haven't started it yet. It looks fairly easy, but like you, I hope the last block doesn't have 12 pieces. Looking forward to seeing how yours finishes. I may have to change it up a bit as I don't want it to look like everyone else's. Perhaps a different border. Happy New Year!

Looks like fun! Fonzie is a cutie!! Happy New Year!!

Love the fabric!

Shakerwood said...

She never said directly about the 12 pieces on the 12th day but told us not to worry. Does that mean there aren't that many or it's easy? I hope both!! I am keeping up with this one so far.

Lori said...

That looks like a fun little project to end the year with.

Fonzie sure is cute. I'm sure he keeps everybody on their toes:)
happy New year!

Cheryl said...

Cannot wait to see what the mini becomes! What a pip Fonzie is. Happy New Year!

Terry said...

I want to do those blocks but I haven't even started on mine yet. Maybe tomorrow! Fonzie is a cutie! :0)

nancy huggins said...

I think I might give that a try and if I find a square that is to much work then I will just made one the same as an easier one in different colors :)
Thanks for sharing :)

What the cats don't love him? How could they not...he is too cute. I am babysitting my daughters dog Griffin for a week... a big black Rottweiler....he is such a good dog and I have really enjoyed having him here...he isn't allowed inside anyway even though at her house she spoils him rotten and he lives inside and sleeps on her bed...agghh
Not at Grandma's house though...lol

Love Fonzie with his bandana but he really doesn't look like he is cat friendly!

I'm dying to see what the Temecula quilt looks like when finished. happy New Year!

Carole said...

What lovely fabrics! I have been coveting that line! Looking forward to seeing how your quilt progresses! Happy New Year Wendy! Cheers!

Louise said...

I am guessing the last block does indeed have 12 pieces but I believe Cheryl said it would be easy...hmmm 3 1/2" vs. easy..not so sure about that one but I do believe Cheryl would not tell a fib. Good for you Wendy for being on target with your blocks..I had good intentions but have a small quilt to finish up on the big guy...
Happy New Year!

It does look like there will be 12 pieces on the last day! I think I will watch and wait on this one.

Taryn said...

I have been tempted by the Temecula mystery quilt as I've seen others' finished blocks. It looks quick and easy and I like the fabrics they put in their kit. Must-remain-strong...

Quilter Kathy said...

Do not tempt me with another new project :)
It looks like fun!
