Twelve Days of Christmas

Twelve Days of Christmas

 A few years ago I stitched Xmas quilts for my sisters. 

I called this quilt "A Song for Mary"  because she knows the words to so much music and this song seemed right for her. 

The Twelve Days of Christmas" is an English Christmas carol that sings of a series of increasingly grand gifts given on each of the twelve days of Christmas. It was first published in England in 1780 and traditionally began the first day after Xmas ending with the Epiphany on January 6.

The modern Twelve Days of Xmas needs a Santa to bring old traditions together in this quilt.
