Started: April 15, 2007



April 15, 2007: A friend of mine has signed up to do the Thimbleberries Block-of-the-Month Club quilt at the local quilt shop, and I sign up to do it, too, even though I don’t love the quilt design. She lives far away but we can meet up at the shop once a month for this project, so it’s a nice way to spend time with her.

May 15, 2007: I get a charm pack of the fabric (Thimbleberries House & Garden) so I can get started with the first month’s sampler block. I am way out of my preferred palette with this fabric and struggle to feel motivated. I put the quilt away.

October 5, 2014: I use up my favorites of the fabric for the Purple Irish Chain Quilt and give the rest away.
