DWM 10/29/12

I have a new project on the wall today! It is from a new Thimbleberries book pictured here:
I am making a sampler from my favorites of the blocks in this book. I love Thimbleberries patterns-Always so easy to follow! Here is a photo of the blocks I have made so far. I wanted to use some of my turquoise fabrics, since the drawer they are stored in wouldn't shut anymore! LOL! I also have a selection of Connecting threads fabrics from their Riviera collection. The colors are so bright a pretty! I'm going to make 20 of the blocks from the book. I kind of like the idea of the basket blocks in the corners of the quilt-that's why they are where they are right now! I have not decided on a setting yet.

This is a photo of my Crab Tree quilt top that I finished earlier in October. I pieced those 1/5 inch squares as Leader/enders for a really long time this year. I acturally had a fairly large stack of little 9 patches left over, so next time I make an orphan block quilt-that is where they will go!This quilt is one of my favorite Bonnie Hunter quilt designs from the book "Adventures with Leaders and Enders". I kind of bought that book to have the pattern! LOL! But there are several others I will make as well!

Be sure to stop by Judy's blog for more Design Wall Monday posts!

God bless

Your sampler quilt blocks are using very pretty colors, but the Apple Tree quilt is spectacular. I guess I will have to buy the book for the pattern too. I love leaders/ender type of patterns. You do beautiful work.

Your sampler project just shines! I love the bright colours you are using. I also am a fan if Bonnie Hunter's patterns.
