I got my copy of Queen Thimble's first book. Pat shared some of the process in the past months with us at Silver Thimbles. We even got to see some preliminary ideas. I anxiously waited for my very own copy as there is one quilt that I absolutely fell in love with when I saw it. I HAVE TO MAKE THIS ONE. I have made the one on the cover. It was an independent pattern and I made mine scrappy. I call it Scrappy scrappy nines as it is all different colors. It is currently residing on my bed as it is cold in the house and I WILL NOT turn on the heat. (as my ex would say, " save it until you really need it".) I'll ask him if he has turned on the heat yet tomorrow when we are at Alice's birthday party.
