Carrie P from "A Passion for Applique" emailed me last month and told me about some Thimbleberries Quilts she had made.
I was so excited and asked to see pictures and here is what she sent me.
Don't you just love them??? I especially love the last one.
I asked her if I could share with all of you and she said I could.
Then I asked her to give me a little background about herself and this is what she said:
I have been quilting since 1999. My mom is a quilter who got me started by showing me the rotary cutter. I tried to make a quilt around 1977 with templates and hated it. My grandmother was a quilter too. She actually made the quilt I tried to make when I was younger and gave it back to me, finished! I still have that quilt which is a log cabin.
I think at the time I started quilting I felt like I had the time since my kids were older even though I was homeschooling them too. There was a local quilt shop that had a Thimbleberries monthly club and I joined. I think I was part of the club for about 3 years. It was a great time to get together with other quilters. I liked and still like the muted fabrics. I have stepped out of my comfort zone and I am using brighter fabrics these days.
I like working with my hands so applique is what I like to do the most.
I enjoyed Carrie's quilts and so glad that she shared them with us. I also love her blog because I totally love applique. I mostly do raw edge but I also love needle turn just need to find time for it.
I hope some of you take the time to go and visit Carrie and if you are doing the Thimbleberries Sew Day....please come by and let me know so I can visit.
