  1. I had a great time quilting along every day. My husband was even looking forward to see the finished block of the day! I was useing up left over pieces from other projects to complete mine and it still came out great. Thank you so much for a fun time.

  2. This was definitely fun, especially right after the mad Christmas was over. And nice to get a taste of new fabric line to boot. Even with everyone here I still had my time. Thanks!

  3. I was using up CW fabric scraps from a mini quilt I made last year. I kept intending to start the blocks as they were posted, but actually only started last night and finished this morning. I have been checking occasionally today for the setting. Before I even started these little blocks other bloggers had figured out the mystery and posted about it. This was fun! Thanks!

  4. Fun project! I work full time so each evening I made the block. I'm looking forward to putting it altogether this weekend. I tried to stick to a similiar color pallet but used scraps. I'm in Kansas, so am a long distance customer. Would love to visit the shop someday!

  5. I've been quilting along...since it was small and quite easy, I've made up extra blocks for 2 quilting friends to have them put together. (Shhh...they don't know yet) Since there are sooooo many big quilts I want to make, I never do the large mystery quilts. I had so much fun, I would definitely do it again! Thank you,
    Cindy

  6. I am planning to start this small quilt this weekend. I will be doing this with christmas colors and maybe another one with CW fabrics. What a great project for this time of the year.
    Love your photographs!
    Thank you.

  7. Lovely! I'll be finishing my tops tomorrow!

  8. PS: yes, I figured out the number of pieces in the blocks counted the days after I made the third one. What a great idea that is!!!

  9. I've got my blocks done, and am looking forward to finishing the top this weekend. It will be good to have a small, hand quilting project for toting. Mine was done in red, white and blue scraps.

    Thank you so much for hosting such a fun quilt-along!

  10. Dear Sheryl,
    Thank you for this fun and easy mini challenge which for once in my quilting life I have been able to keep up with. :) The little quilt is absolutely adorable! I have been using up a pack of charms that I go several years ago, waiting for the perfect project. This has fitted the bill perfectly. Thank you so much!

  13. Adorable, I really had fun with this one. Thanks for taking the time to share this with us.

    I may have to make a doll to go with this little quilt and give them together as a gift.

    Happy Sewing and have a blessed 2012

  14. Darn - I didn't figure out number of blocks and pieces coordinated with the day, but I did participate! In fact I posted my blocks today. I used Miniatures fabric and can't wait to finish setting the blocks! Thanks so much for a wonderful mystery challenge!
    Cheers!

  17. I really had a fun time with this small quilt. Knew several other ladies on a mailing list that were all doing it - so it made it fun to check in with everyone daily to see how everyone was doing with the blocks.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Very fun! I think I spent as much time shopping my scraps/stash as I did sewing. Thanks so much!! I'm off to finish mine now.

  19. This is the first time I've done something like this and had a great time. Can't wait to get it done. Several of us were doing it together and had fun guessing what block was next.

  22. I haven't started my blocks yet but I hope to start week after next. I have a pressing project for next week. I can't wait to start and I hoping to make one for me and one for a giveaway. Thank you so much for this project! It's just what we need to start a new year.

  23. So nice to read I'm not the only quilter who looked forward to your next block each day. I did solve the mystery after a few blocks and your instructions were "sew on". The fabric pack was sold out so my colors are red, red/white and white/red prints. This mystery will be finished, entered on my January journal page and displayed for Valentine's Day.Thanks again.

  25. I had such fun making these little blocks. They were fun. I will go into the sewing room now to sash and put on the borders. I kept laying out 3 x 4 but without sashings. Love the way it finishes. Small quilts and doll quilts are such fun to make. Thank you for the great time.

  26. I've been sewing along in Idaho and get to visit your store next Tuesday on my way to San Diego. Can't wait to see the store in person!

  29. This was a fun little project that gave you 15 minutes of play a day. I made two - one in Moda Blueberry Crumb and one in Happy - they look so different. But I get to keep one while my daughter will certainly want the bright.

  30. Your post would appear at 8.18 PM here in France so it was perfect for a little hand stitching time.

  37. What fun this has been! My blocks were made with a variety of reds and off whites with a bit of gray thrown in from my CW stash. I will finish the top after work tonight and then try to quilt it this weekend. It was fun to look forward to finding out what the block would be each day. Thank you!

  49. I'm one of those people who doesn't like to be surprised, so I waited patiently until I saw the final quilt. I love the Barbara Brackman fabrics in the model! I *did* figure out the theme on day 11 - clever idea!

    It was really nice to have this to look forward to as the holidays were winding down. Thank you for a great mystery quilt.

    Thanks for the fun!

  59. I was out earlier doing errands and could not wait to get back home to check for "the finale." My blocks are posted on my blog. It is not a very good picture, just showing my weeks work.
    I really enjoyed this mystery/SAL and I hope you would consider doing another in the future.
    Thank again. I really enjoyed this.

  62. By day seven I was hooked so I caught up on that day. The anticipation of waiting for the release of the next day's block was too fun.

    Thanks so much for doing this. It was just the perfect project to get our sewing fix and still have time to enjoy the holidays.

  66. What a fun first project for the New Year! Thank you so much. I noticed with each new block I got just a bit fussier about which fabric I wanted to use, therefore my # 11
    and 12 blocks are waiting in the wings! I will now be able to complete the sweet little quilt! I used some of my civil war
    collection on these.

  69. This was super fun!!! Thank you for putting this together.

    I have a special thank you to say. I asked for this little quilt kit for a Christmas present. My daughter-in-law tried to order it, however, by the time she did, it was sold out. She called the shop and spoke to someone - I do not know who, but a special person! She was needing to cut one more kit and graciously agreed to cut one for my daughter-in-law as well. So - THANK YOU!

  70. This has been such a FUN project and i'm sad to see it come to an end! The first thing i did every morning was check to see what that day's mystery block was and then i'd head straight into my sewing room and get it made. I decided to make two mystery quilts because the kit arrived a little later than expected downunder..now i have one to give to a friend..perfect!! I hope you run another mystery quilt project this year!! thanks so much!! cheers, Marian

  85. Thank you for your effort, time and sharing of this quilt with us. It was so much fun. After day 3 I noticed that you posted about 11:18 every day so I was clock watching in antisapation of the next block. Will get mine sashed and borders on tomorrow--and maybe even quilted.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I haven't made mine yet but thinking about it. I figured the mystery out by day 2 so I had fun trying to guess which block your would use for each number. A few times I was right.

    Thanks for sharing. As always, you have great ideas.

  87. I really enjoyed having something fun to look forward to after the Christmas holidays! I admit, I am behind by the last three, but they should be easy to pick up and finish. I caught on to the number of blocks but it took me a bit longer. I think it was block six that it finally dawned on me. So much fun, hope you will plan another small Christmas quilt next year.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I had so much fun watching for each day's quilt block. Was hesitant to jump in and start stitching so waited until all were revealed. Finished all blocks using a charm pack. Will need to get larger pieces to finish sashing and borders. Thank you SOOO much for 12 wonderful days.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I have made blocks 1-10. I got a Christmas charm pack and did it with that. What fun to have a little quilt project that can be finished in so little time! :) I did figure out your mystery too! Thank you!

  92. Thank you for 13 days of fun. I looked forward to checking your blog each evening to see what block you'd posted next. I saved the patterns to make the blocks all at once - am going to do it this weekend. The quilt is very charming and your idea of matching the number of pieces with each day is very clever.

  103. I had a wonderful time quilting along. I really enjoyed doing a square everyday and if I was busy one day I could catch up very easily....I wish there were more of these type of quilt a longs around. I also enjoyed doing a mini the first one I have ever done.

    ReplyDelete
  104. As I was cutting out the pieces I did discover the number of the day corresponded to the number of pieces, so it was fun to see what the block was, especially once it got to days 10, 11, and 12. I was disappointed when you were sold out of the kits, but I have quite a stash of fabric, so found pleanty for the blocks. Now just need to put them together! Thanks for sharing the quilt along!

    ReplyDelete
  105. Was so much fun doing this. I did two blocks a day ... one using Civil War prints and another with Christmas prints. My daughter and I quilt together. She used the kit and I used scraps. Fun, fun!! Thank you so much for sharing with us.

    ReplyDelete
  106. I bought the kit, but because I live in Canada, it was a few days late. Ended up doing four blocks at once and then one a day after that. It was a lot of fun, and so nice to have the first finish of 2012. Would love to see another one later in the year.

    I only found this earlier this week but I have them done through block 5. I am making 8 little quilts for relatives gifts later in the year or maybe for next Christmas. All alike from an older line called Hearth & Home from Brannock & Patek. I would also like to make a Christmas one for myself later. Thanks for the patterns. This has given me a good start on quilting for the new year.

  108. Thank you for this cute little mystery. I just loved doing it and will be finishing the setting today. I can imagine making it over again in different colourways and it would make a perfect little quilt to give as a present. I will miss waking up in Aus each morning to find the current days clue waiting for me and am already looking forward eagerly to your next Christmas mystery.

  115. Thanks so much for this delightful project! I have made all the blocks and will now put it together - I used Christmas scraps, so I will have one project already done for Christmas 2012! Will then make two more for gifts. All the best from downunder in Australia!

    ReplyDelete
  116. Just found out about this one today--what a wonderful idea and a lovely mini!

    I didn't get to participate during the "days" but hope I can pull together some scraps and make this up to add to the minis display I want to make this year and have this ready for the twelve days of 2012! Only question now, CW or Xmas scraps (I've got both)? Hmmmm......

    ReplyDelete
  117. LOVED it! I started on Friday late in the day, finished on Saturday afternoon. I'll put sashing and borders on tonight. I made 2, very easy almost instant gratification. I watched from the beginning, I wasn't sure how much fabric or how many fabrics I needed. I might make more as gifts. It will be great to use as practice for free motion quilting, (I'm learning.) thanks so much for the wonderful start to the New Year. ;->

  118. I had a great time making a mini quilt. I got to use some of my bits and pieces. Now I have to see if I have big enough bits for the finishing or if I will "have" to get something new.

  126. I'm a little late to the party but Have hopes to get this made this month so I can hand quilt it on my Q-snap frame. Thanks for the fun idea. Too bad there aren't really Christmas CW fabrics. I'll have to check for red and green and cream...I like the blue and brown too.

  131. Thanks so much for a wonderful after Christmas "pick me up"....two other ladies from my quilt group and myself decided to do this...it was so much fun! Everyday we would email each other and say, "it's on"...and we would race to complete the block of the day....I sincerely hope you do this again, it was fun and we three enjoyed it immensely! Happy New Year from PA! Jeanne

  134. It was a great little quilt. Thanks for the instructions. I did mine a little different since I didn't use the same fabrics. I used a really new charm square pack for the blocks, but there was no yardage available yet.

  153. Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of christmas. See the link below for more info.

  155. I really looked forward to this mystery because it was small and doable, especially at this time of year. Plus, I love CW fabrics, though I may try it in another colorway later. More, please!

    ReplyDelete
  156. I loved this because it was so easy to squeeze in with everything else going on this time of year. I'm a mystery girl-books, quilts, etc. so I really enjoyed this. I did figure out the pattern, after the 5th day-but still didn't know how it would all fit together. Thank you and happy Christmas!

  157. I followed along everyday by email, and I wrote each days instruction down so I could do it later!
    I am usually here by myself ,with the holidays I have been blessed with the Gboys!

  158. Thoroughly enjoyed this little mystery. Did not even think of the mystery part of it, just enjoyed each day's block and then putting it all together. Finished with the binding yesterday. Have taken a pic but not sure where to post it.

  161. Here it is July 26,2015 and I just made up 2 of these little cuties. I guess I'm just behind the times! But I enjoyed making them as part of my "Christmas in July" fun. Your photos are so beautiful and inspiring. I can't wait to make more of your little projects.
