Thimbleberies Village

Today I finished the third block in this quilt pattern, for my son’s wedding in November.

Thimbleberries patterns are always interesting to sew. For the  most part, I don’t need instructions when sewing most quilt blocks, but with thimbleberries methods you’re never sure where or how the individual pieces go together.  There’s a lot of layering, diagonal sewing, and folding of corners.  The instructions are very good, and I enjoy looking at the block after its done to think how I would have sewn it without the thimblerries methods.
