Design Wall Monday

For the first time, I'm joining in Judy's Design Wall Monday. Here's what's on my Design Wall today:

This is a Thimbleberries pattern, from the book North Bay Quilts. I started this at Thimbleberries Club back in 1999, at a shop in the Cleveland, Ohio area called Abigayle's. The pattern was for a table runner, three blocks set block-to-block. I don't really use table runners, and decided to make twelve blocks to make a good-sized lap/throw quilt. I only have one block up because they're all the same, and this design wall is pretty small so all 12 of them wouldn't fit anyway. Actually, the blocks are all still in 3 rows, and need sewn together into blocks, then the blocks set together into a top. With or without sashing (I haven't decided yet about that), and with borders.

I'm hoping to have this together as a top very soon!

Thanks for stopping by. Come back again any time, and enjoy seeing everyone else's design walls, too.


  1. Wow - that block looks very time consuming!

  2. @ Alycia -- well, I DID start the project back in 1999 ;-) For the 12 blocks, it felt like I was making flying geese forever.
