Thimbleberries Lap Quilt

 I have long admired Thimbleberries fabrics and patterns.

A quilt entitled "Harvest Mix" caught my eye from the book entitled "At Home With Thimbleberries Quilts" by Lynette Jensen. It combines the Ohio Star pattern, Nine Patch, Sixteen Patch, and the use of half-square triangles to make an interesting quilt. I  consider this a "scrap" quilt because I used what was left over from other projects.

I altered the formation of the blocks to use  the fabrics I had on hand, so my quilt is larger than the project that appears in the book.

Don't you just love the scrappy look? For the backing, I used a Thimbleberries flannel so the quilt be extra warm and snuggly.

I machine quilted the inner design, and used cross hatching for the borders.

I started this project back in 2006.
 It may have taken me over three years to finish this quilt, but now I can declare it finished!

  1. Your quilt is beautiful! Three years isn't so bad - I had one that hung around almost twenty years - LOL! Are you doing doll quilt swap again?
