    I am wanting to do a scrappy quilt and I believe it is called "thimble" It uses many many scraps and the cut out shapes are sewn top to bottom and in rows.

    Does this sound familiar to anyone? Pattern? Instructions?

    thanks

    Could it be Tumbler? That shape looks like a thimble.
    I found this:
    The only difference between a Tumbler Quilt and a Thimble quilt is the size. Small shapes or miniatures are usually called Thimbles, and larger shapes are called Tumblers. This two-inch size is in betweenójust right.

    I second the Fatcat Pattern if you are looking for an applique thimble. These are really cute.
