Thimbleberries

This charming country quilt was made by Sherron. This is an old Thimbleberries block of the month that a few of us tackled a few years back. Sherron, like many of us, starts a project to find it hidden in a closet for a few weeks or months ... or years! It's great that she finished it and I am tickled that she thought of me to quilt it for her.



 This is a calender quilt. Each month represents a new block with a story to the month ... hearts for February, Christmas tree for December etc. Sherron chose an ivory/grey light marble background from my stock. We picked one of my favorite pantos, Tickle.


The thread we used is a light mushroom So Fine thread. I don't generally like to use too dark of a thread on a light background. The dark green border really ties the quilt together nicely and a real ivory thread popped out too much. I think our choices worked really well here!





Happy quilting!
