    How many of you have done any Thimbleberries quilt kits? Just finished one and sent it to Kathyinmo, who so graciously sent me the kit in the first place. She also sent me this one, a sampler type. I'm going to be quilting my Jewel Box Lap quilt first, which I've already started, then will begin cutting and piecing this one. With kits, I'm always afraid that I'll make a mistake and use too much fabric so I run out before I'm done, but I love this quilt. This one won't be done in a week, though, Terrie and Kathy, LOL.

    With Thimbleberries does it usually involve fabric or is it just a pattern? I was just wondering, I've never seen them before but picked a pattern up from Savers (thrift store) this week.

    The "Pansy Park" looks beautiful!

    Blocks 1 & 2 of Pansy Park completed today. I hope I can do this well. I usually pick blocks with larger pieces--there are so many 1" pieces in here! But, I'm game.

    Blocks 3 & 4 of Pansy Park....#3 was a pain, lots of 1" pieces and it's still not exactly right, but I didn't think I could fix the issues. #4 was pretty easy, but I see that #5 will be a real pain with all the teensy pieces it has. Anyway, as promised, here are the next two:

    I'm trying in between chicken emergencies! Yesterday, it was Isaac and just now, we fixed an eggbound banty Cochin. It just doesn't pay to be me this week.

    I'm not sure what to do with this quilt when it's done. I really don't want to quilt it. Maybe I'll sell the top to another quilter.

    Block # 5 wasn't as hard as I originally thought it would be. I have to stop for awhile-been fighting a headache since the middle of last night.
