Little-Little Blocks

I first discovered Temecula Quilt Company several years ago via Quilt Samplers Top Shops magazine.  I loved just knew I would love to actually visit the store.

A short time after that Hubby and I went to San Diego and tried really hard to fit a visit to the quilt shop but couldn’t.  I’ve had to instead enjoy their work through their blog and website.  Time and time again they have hosted quilt alongs and although I’ve wanted to, just couldn’t bring myself to fit one more thing into my schedule.  I’ve always regretted it later.

This Christmas they are hosting a “We Wish You a Mini Christmas” quilt along.  I decided to do it.  They are posting a block each day for 12 days with the layout instructions posted on the 14th.  Well the 14th is my birthday so what a great little birthday gift to give myself.  As of writing this, I am six days in.

The blocks are tiny and will finish at 2 1/4″.  They are just so darn cute.  Best yet, I don’t have to pull out fabric to make the blocks.  I’ve just grabbed something out of the scrap bin and whatever I pull is whatever I make…I’m trying to do it as easy as possible.

In 2012 they did a 12 days of Christmas quilt along that I always wished that I had done…I might still go back and do that one day.

For now I’ve been making two blocks every other day.  It’s been fun and something I hope to keep up with.

    I’m also following along with this quilt-a-long and raiding my scraps and thoroughly enjoying it! Thank you for your honesty Jo about the costs of blogs as well as the timing of posts! I wish more people in the world were honest ……….

    Sheryl has the best free sew a longs and offers a kit if you care to buy one; they sell out quickly. I’m also sewing these We Wish You a Mini Christmas blocks. Looking forward to block #8 in the morning.

    I haven’t been participating in the We Wish you a Mini Christmas sew-along but I did make the 12 Days of Christmas last December. I used a charm pack a friend had given me for my birthday. It is very cute and sewed up fast. The fabric I was given was more ‘modern’ than what I normally use so it is a colorful Christmas wallhanging. Enjoy your sew-along and have a Happy Birthday next week. Blessings, Gretchen

    I too love Temecula Quilt Co. blog. I did their 2012 Christmas sampler, their ABC quilt along and their summer sampler this year. Will catch up on the Christmas mini next week. So fun.

    This quilt-a-long you are doing sounds so interesting. I’ll have to drop by the Tecemula blog site to take a look. But I’m doing my first Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilt this year, so that’s about all I can handle right now what with all the other Christmas season activities. That brown block you’ve made toward the middle of the picture is so c-u-t-e; I love the colors and patterns in the fabric!
