The first one is a bright Yellow Brick Road. Take a look at the backing - I've crumb pieced the scraps, log cabin style and added them to the backing.
The first of two Thimbleberry sampler block-of-the-month quilts. For the backing, I didn't have enough of any of the fabrics that I liked so I created an off centre four patch from two gold tonal thimbleberry fabrics. Maryquilts.com generously provides a tutorial and instruction for making this backing.
The second Thimbleberry block-of-the-month. The backing is another off-centre four patch, this time in pink and green, displayed on the table in front of the quilt top.
This one is a Farmer's Daughter blocks in pink, green and cream thimbleberries fabrics. Bet you didn't realize Thimbleberries had so many different pinks! This has special meaning for me, being a farmer's daughter. For the backing, I needed to add about 8" to the backing so I added a strip of scrappy stars.
A stack of 42 blocks (Yellow Brick Road) waiting to be pieced into a quilt top.
Different size blocks for a sampler (done block of the month from patterns on the web). Luckily I printed out the instructions and kept them with the finished blocks because it has a pieced border and there's a way to fit the different size blocks together.
Below is my crumb quilt waiting for borders. I ran out of Kona black solid to sash it - lucky I found that four yard purchase in the same bin eh? I love these blocks. Interested in crumb piecing? Here's a few links to tutorials you'll find fun.
And lastly, a rather ghastly autumn table topper that never got made into a topper.
Every last bit of fabric and batting from these two bins has been reassigned a new home. The bins now empty are ready to be repurposed or donated to someone else. I think I'll use them to gather my next donation for the Women in Need.
Want a peek into the boxes? Keep coming back.
