As promised here is a picture of the Twelve Days of Christmas quilt that I've been working on. It's a red work and crazy patch quilt (35" x 35"). It will be a block of the month for my Palo Verde Patchers quilt group. The blocks were inspired by blocks I found on the internet and I then re-designed many of them to fit this quilt. I also designed the layout. In the 4 inner and the 4 outer corners are crazy patches made using wool felt. Each month the handwork group will receive one red work pattern and the directions for 2 hand embroidery stitches to be used on the crazy patches. I'll be doing the hand embroidery right along with the group. It should be a fun quilt to make. I think it will take us longer than a year to make though. There is quite a lot of red work in the various borders. That final top border took an age to make even though I was very motivated. I wanted to get the top finished by today so it could be shown as a sample for sign-ups. Thankfully I met my goal.
