I came in today from work and wanted to get started on sewing for my first Thimbleberries Sew Day. However, I had to feed the grandbaby and watch the Mavs play. I just had to do that, you know! They got their rings tonight and it was a happy night except they lost. My kids went to the game and I watched the baby....So, my sewing was delayed until I put her to bed....I got a late start but was able to finish this little wallhanging. I've had this little Thimbleberries pattern for a few years and I've been wanting to make it forever. I thought it would be fun to finally make it and I was right. It was fun and quick and easy too. I hurried upstairs and pulled some fabric and started cutting. This little pattern went together so quickly. I even learned a new way to put together friendship stars. These little stars are only 3 inches finished but the method the pattern showed was alot easier than using all squares or triangles. That's one thing I like about Thimbleberries patterns, they use quick methods and you get good results with their methods....Anyway, here's my first project for the Thimbleberries Sew Day and I know it won't be my last. I have several books of hers and there are patterns in each book that I want to do, so I should be busy for a few years anyway!!! If you want to join us, we sew the last Wednesday of each month using Thimbleberries patterns or fabric or both. There is no pressure and no quilt police, click on the button on the right hand side of my blog and you'll be directed to Barb's blog and you can sign up there or get more info.
This was a free pattern that was sent out with an advertisement for one of her books. This pattern is called Glory Be.
Ok, it's past my bedtime so I'll say goodnight. Happy sewing!
