Thimbleberries Village Progress

Now that I've got my Thimbleberries Month by Month quilt top finished and delivered to the quilter, I decided to pull out my Thimbleberries Village quilt and get it finished up.

When I first became interested in Thimbleberries fabrics and patterns I went on a search for all of the original fabrics. After a lot of searching and some help from my friends, Kristie and Patty, I was able to get started. I can't remember exactly how long ago it was that I started this quilt, but up until this weekend I had five blocks completed. This weekend I finally finished one more block...the Apple Orchard. Six down, six more to go!

These are all of the blocks that I have finished so far.....

And here's a picture of my Cranberry Sparkle quilt. I chose this one to hang on my living room wall when I pulled out my fall decorations last week. I finished it in September 2004 after starting it at the Main Street Cotton Shop retreat in


  1. Great blocks Kairle, Keep it up and this will be another one of those UFO's to be completed.

  2. Lookin good Kairle. I love your Cranberry Sparkle. Looks like you are on a roll. I gave up on Hometown Xmas. I just don't have the time right now. DGD's Band contest are filling our weekends. I have to be good and go since I missed her Confirmation when I went to Hutch. LOL!

  4. Kairle,
    I just finished piecing the Thimbleberries Village quilt top this summer. My first thought when I saw your pictures (just for moment, mind you) was 'how did my pictures get on here?' LOL Looking good.

  5. I used to be a huge lover of all things Thimbleberries! I have quite a few completed projects (club and otherwise) and lots of kits waiting! LOL You've reminded me that I have the T'berries Village quilt as a UFO. I remember I had to have that project and then never finished it.

    Great looking projects!
