There are 12 stunning, traditional applique designs (suitable for 18" blocks) in this spectacular series of patterns, plus a stunning leaf border adapted from a beautiful Civil War era quilt.

12 Days of Christmas Fun Fact:  The song "The 12 Days of Christmas" is believed to have originated in the 16th century in European and Scandinavian culture; however, the song itself first showed up in English form in a children's book titled Mirth without Mischief in 1780 A.D.

Christmas Quote:  Christmas gift suggestions:  To your enemy, forgiveness; to an opponent tolerance; to a friend, you heart; to a customer, service; to all, charity; to every child, a good example; to yourself, respect." < Oren Arnold, Novelist and Journalist, 1900-1980 >
