November Thimbles


I so look forward to getting together with the Thimbles gang. Only downside is that it only happens once a month. And now it will be almost Christmas when we meet again.

This month's project is from the book Scrap-Basket Surprises by Kim Brackett and is called Bali Sea Star. The fabric line is Whittier Crossing from our own Mary Ann at Little Quilts. It is yummy. Gretch has a picture of it on her blog. My fabric is still in the bag. This book has several other projects that are on my to do list. But first I have to finish some of the stuff I have already got in the works. So what have I accomplished this weekend?

-I completed all 172 segments for the Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilt

-did the 9 patch blocks for Cindy Lou Who-Schnibble pattern

-made some segments for our Thimbles gang exchange

I have to get busy on that one as I have heard that Gretch has picked out our next one. I also gave Thimble Queen Pat palpitations when I informed her I am signing up for Comfort and Joy her new pattern. It is being offered as a block of the month by Bad Melisa. I did warn her that she would be subject to my whining do to all of the "A-word" that this quilt involves. It is an 8 month project. And every month has a component of applique to be done. I will either survive or become a raving maniac by completion date!
