    Sorry, no idea, but it's cute. Looks like a fall themed sampler of some sort.

    I think it might be all seasons since there's tulips and hearts along with the pumpkins and christmas tree. Just don't know which direction to look.

    Looks like a block to represent each month, January snow, February hearts, ... December tree. Sorry I don't recognize where it comes from. Probably wouldn't be hard to duplicate.

    I think it's a BOM a block for every month of the year, but I don't recognize it.

    I think you might be right and I might have to resort to my own devices. Thanks everyone.

    It is an old Thimbleberries (I think) block of the month I think from 2008 or 2009 could have been earlier, I will have to find it to be sure..I bought it in Kansas while on a quilt retreat, 2 years ago...I just finished the quilt 2 weeks ago for my hubby.

    Yes, it is an older Thimbleberries block of the month set of patterns...we had a Thimbleberries Club at our shop, and that was one of the first year's projects. Don't remember how long ago it was....or if I still have my patterns.

    This was a Thimbleberries BOM from many years ago. However, at my favorite LQS, the Thimbleberries Club just did this a couple years ago. I asked the owner if they were using the same patterns, and she said no, it was in a book now. You might check with your LQS and see if she has it. I remember paying $5 for each block pattern. Can you imagine? $60 for that pattern! I think Lynette Jensen closed her website. She is retiring.

    I thought that's what it was...the little shop I visited had lots of older blocks of the month patterns packaged up for the whole year and they were only 10 dollars each....wowee.. quiltn-nannie I'm glad I waited til I found it cheap!!!! I'm still looking for where I put the package of patterns when I finished... geez...I need to get more organized!!!!

    Liked her early fabrics, but the patterns arent to my taste.

    I believe the blocks can be found in "Beautiful Blocks for Beautiful Quilts" by Lynette Jensen on Amazon
    http://www.amazon.com/Thimbleberries...en+quilt+books

    I agree it looks like one for each month of the year, I believe you could find most if not all at the quilters cache.

    You might be able to find the kit on ebay.....I've had much success finding "out of circulation" kits that way or even at Amazon.com. Good luck in your search. If you do ebay, put in the "search" parameters and request email notice when one surfaces.

    I had no idea about the quilt kit but still enjoyed reading everyone's replies - it still amazes me, though I don't know why after several years on the board, the wealth of knowledge everyone has and their willingness to share! What a fantastic group this is!
