Thimbleberries Home and Garden Quilt

For all you Thimbleberries club members. Remember the Home and Garden quilt, the one with the really big house on it. Well unlike me I have a customer that has actually finished hers. I am doing custom on this quilt and have done several passes If you know the quilt I have just finished the two hearts and am getting ready to roll the quilt to start on the pass with the roof of the house. Here are some pictures of what I have done so far.

The quilts told me that it wanted leaves. So I have done pothos leaves in the outer border in groups of 3 with curly tendrils. I really want to do this as an all over design on a quilt soon. I think it would look really neat and it would give tons of texture to the quilt.

I did four leaves in the corner squares on the next boarder in. This border has corner squares and then checker board, then a print, then checkerboard and ends with a corner square.

I did a little line dancing in the checkerboard and then did a small whimsy in the solid print. I am not sure if you will be able to see the quilting on the next picture, but I am going to post it any way. It is the corner square for the 5th border which is the one right before the center of the quilt. I did a heart with curly tendrils.

So far I am having a blast quilting this quilt. I will post more pictures as I work on the quilt.

  1. I'm loving it so far sista'! The checkerboard borders are a little hard for me to get a good visual on, but I love all the corner blocks. I am sooooooooooooooo excited Angela! I'll check back to see how its progressing. Thanks for the love I know you're putting into it! Oh, and Mamma taught me how to clean up my back, so it stands to reason that I would be your Stepford quilter!
