Countryside Wreath

Countryside Wreath and Prairie Pines are two of the first four single patterns that started the Thimbleberries pattern collection some 27 years ago.  They remained in the collection until the Thimbleberries Studio closed a few years ago.  Many of you may have made one of these (or both) quilts.  The original Prairie Pines quilt was larger and made to look like a scrap quilt.  Check out the Reminiscing section for more Thimbleberries memories.  Both patterns are still available in my book, In Celebration of Quilting from Landauer Publishing.

    On my move from Calif to Oregon I have lost the pattern for a quilt from 2007. It is all flannel and says Christmas Street on the side of the fabric. I do have some pieces cut but never had time to finish it. Now being retired I have time but no instructions. Help please!

      I wouldn’t have anyway of know which quilt you had started. Many kits by shops were made up with Christmas Street fabrics.
      In addition, I do not have any of those past materials available any longer. When I closed the studio, most things were disposed of…just too much to keep without a purpose.
