Thimbleberries Hometown Christmas - Part 1

OK, so if you have seen the Thimbleberries Hometown Christmas quilt in person, you know it is HUGE! So huge that blogging about it will be done in several posts.

A good friend, Barb trusted me with her Hometown Christmas Quilt.  My Mom and her got their kits at the same time and work on them on and off at their local quilt store's Thimbleberries Camp.  (Read that as I have another one of these to quilt...)

There was a debate in my house over where we could get a picture of the entire quilt.  Matt is actually holding the top of it and hiding behind it.  It is hanging off of my back porch, which is about 9 feet off the ground.  This took me a long time to custom quilt, but I wanted it to be special.  Barb is a very special person and I wanted her to love her quilt!
I love how the back shows off the quilting.  It makes all the work worth it!  In Part 2 I will show you some close ups of the some of the blocks and talk about the new longarm templates that I used.   


  1. Hi I'm Blanca I wanted to ask where did you get the pattern for this beautiful quilt you made. I have looked everywhere and can not find. I have been on the internet and they are all sold out. Do you know if maybe somewhere they are doing a block of the month for it. I would surely would want to be part of that.

    1. Bianca, It is a customer's quilt. I think Thimbleberries put it out as a kit in 2010. The customer is from Florida and I am pretty sure that that shop sold out off all those quilt kits. There might be one available somewhere on the internet. It is Hometown Christmas by Thimbleberries.

  2. I would love to get the kit for your Christmas quilt would you know where I could get one.
