    These are for my exchange here locally. The block is from a Thimbleberries pattern. This is the one I was assigned but most of them had a zillion pieces. They took me a while to complete all 12 of them. We exchange on the 7th. I ran out of fabric and had to punt from my stash as I could not get out to buy (with my bad ankle). I did not like the last round so I changed it at the last min. I got pretty sick of the whole thing but I think I will like the other quilt blocks. I have been working on them for about 8 weeks off and on.

    Very well put together! All your points are there and all the seams match up well! Great job on them! I do like the colors in the first one better but that is just me. I like strong contrast. I'm sure everyone will love them!!

    I forgot to mention we were to use civil war type fabrics or the muddy Thimbleberries fabrics.

    They are very pretty. Shows that you worked very hard. Hope your ankle is getting better.
