    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 beautiful. I don't what you mean about "blasted" - smile. I dont' like a bazillion pieces either.
