Mystery Quilt-Along

The 12 Days of Christmas Tiny Mystery, Day 6

Welcome to

the 12 Days of Christmas

Tiny Mystery quilt, Day 6.

I mentioned the very first day

of our 12 Days of Christmas Quilt-Along,

there will be 1 Tiny Dresden plate.

Thanks for reminding me yesterday, Paula.

If you don’t already have my Tiny Dresden Plate Template

this would be a good time to purchase one

from your local quilt shop or my website click here.

They’re $8.00 + shipping.

For a short time I will have a paper download here,

but

like the rest of these instructions,

they won’t last,

so don’t tarry!

Don’t know what tarry means???

tar·ry2
/ˈterē/

verb

LITERARY
gerund or present participle: tarrying
stay longer than intended; delay leaving a place.
“she could tarry a bit and not get home until four”
  • linger
  • loiter
  • procrastinate
  • pause
  • delay
  • wait
  • lag

We’ll make a second (different) tiny tree block today.

A new block, a new green fabric!

Cut:

  • 2 cream squares 2″
  • 2 cream rectangles 1 3/4″ x 2″
  • 1 green rectangle 2″ x 3 1/2″
  • 1 black rectangle 1″ x 2″

I used my “Lazy Susan” technique for the flying geese again.

I also sewed the triangle scraps together, since they’re there…

If nothing else it kept me from clipping threads between pieces.

I press the seams toward the trunk.

I think it makes the trunk stand out.

Next, sew the tree to the trunk.

I pressed this seam upward & again,

clipped the few stitches in the seam to make it lie flatter.

Don’t forget to post pics over at my Sewing With Susan Facebook group!

See you tomorrow.

Just Keep Sewing…
