This Thimbleberry kit was a door prize that I won at my guild's retreat two years ago. Figuring that it had aged long enough, I put it together at retreat this year. It hung on my design wall during the Quilt of Valor quilts marathon and then it was time to finish this one.
I added hand painted 'seeds' which just seems to complete the quilt. Because I wanted this to be totally washable since this is a table topper, everything is done by machine except the seeds.
The backing is a soft homespun that washes up beautifully.And here for your enjoyment, is my first attempt at quilting feathers. BTW, I do not have a stitch regulator on my machine.
It is just too cute! On another note, did you know that today is National Watermelon Day? I didn't either but learned about it over at Wednesday's Child.
