  1. I haven’t used a Thimbleberries print in a long time. Seems like it was Moda for a long time and now it seems like a lot of what I pick up is Maywood. For me, it seems to cycles according to my current color palette leanings. Quality fabric is the common denominator, though. The effort put forth to create a quilt, to say nothing of the $$$, demands that I purchase the best I am able so the keepsake end result “stands the test of time”. As always, your quilts and quilting (feathers especially) are gorgeous!-D

  2. Hi Wendy,

    I’ve missed your posts. I don’t have a collection of Thimbleberries but I often use pieces with other fabrics. I go more for their small scale prints that I combine with civil war type prints in my quilts. I love what you’ve done with Thimbleberries.
    Welcome back.

  3. I have always loved Thimbleberries fabrics! I just recently bought two charm pack assortments from an Etsy vendor to add to my charm stash.

    I love the new line you showed. I always regretted not buying a bundle of Lynette’s “Subtle Solids” when they came out so I will be sure to get this set this time.

  4. I adore number 4. The colours are so fresh. now I have started quilting I realise that I am OK with the patchwork bit. it’s the actual quilting that bothers me. The stitching all over really freaks me out. I have “stitched in the ditch” but hat is a bit boring. The stitching on number 4 is absolutely gorgeous. How is it done? is it by hand?
