This is the Pattern I have had for years......

I went to my store upstairs and chose these fabrics....
and well....that is as far as I have gotten today...My mother is visiting and I am down to crunch time on a quilt....gotta get it done. Now that I see these fabrics together in a picture, I think I am going to change the red and the plain green.....

This is the quilt....the saw these fabrics showing the front just yet but I spent a good portion of the day putting this back together and redoing the borders. Talk about messing up a border....oh my gosh (NEW BEGINNER HERE)...

not the sharpest knife in the draw that day but is all better now.

Winona from Cat Lover and Quilt Maker won the Sun Bonnet Sue Giveway.

Patchworks Jen and Cottonreel are getting a set as well... I know, I said one winner but I just couldn't help myself.


  1. Leftover! I would love your leftovers. Happy quilting.

  2. Woohoo, thanks a lot Barb. I will send you my address in a bit. We actually got to about the same place on our Thombleberries Sew Day. I didn't think I would have time to sew today, but I did pick out a pattern and the fabrics to go with it. I will post about it in a minute. Wow! Now I can actually make a Sundbonnet Sue. (grin)

  3. Enjoy your mother's visit. Love your fabrics.

  4. I love that Thimbleberries pattern.

    I also can't wait to see your finished "secret" quilt revealed.
