TBT: Thimbleberries Month-By-Month

We're on the verge of wheat harvest (maybe we'll start later today) here on the farm, but I had to make time to share another Throw Back Thursday quilt. This was a Thimbleberries block-of-the-month calendar quilt called Month-By-Month from the late 90's - maybe 1998.

I signed up for this quilt through our local Extension office and picked up the kits once a month. When I started, I knew it was destined to become a UFO because I was fully immersed in a new multi-million dollar grant project at work. I dug it back out in 2007 when the hubby and I became empty-nesters and finished it, along with 7 other UFO quilts that year.

Quilt Stats:
  • Quilt Pattern: Month-By-Month calendar quilt by Thimbleberries.
  • Fabric: Thimbleberries by Lynette Jensen.
  • Finished Size: 76" x 92".
  • Quilting: I had this quilt custom quilted by a hand-quilded long arm quilter. She did a lot of line stitching and stitching in the ditch on the blocks, meandering in the sashings and a leaf motif in the border.

P.S. Sorry for the wrinkled quilt. I really thought I steamed it better than that!
