Thimbleberries

look what i won just for showing up for our January meeting. the pretty print on top is going in my see-below-scrap-version.these are the 2009 first quarter club fabrics with my January instruction booklet. i chose the light version.with so many leftovers from the 2008 club fabrics. i decided to pick out the ones i liked. & use to make a second version with the 2009 pattern.the focus from the Lakeside group with boats is being used in my in-progress 3rd quarter project. & the focus from the Lodge group with pinecones was used for The Great Holiday Mystery Quilt. these are the ones not picked but could use if needed.& would you believe that the newsletter called for a scrap fabric challenge. i know. this year is going to be fun. the challenge is to make the club pattern using fabrics from your stash. so here's what i picked out. i started with that red print on the left. & then found pieces i loved that went with it.all my pieces for all three quilts are cut out and need to be ready to take to my next meeting. i'll share the results when i get them done.
