Apple Parings Desired

Here is what my Apple Core quilt will look like after I get all the pieces I have cut out sewn together. In the picture, the top right is already sewn. It will measure about 26" x 24" with these pieces.

Pardon me for a second while I get off my computer chair and get down on my knees (I'm about to grovel). I just realized how L-O-N-G it it going to take me to get this quilt up to any large size with the fabrics I have if I keep it a charm quilt. So...

...if anyone out there has Thimbleberries fabrics that are 4" x 5" or larger that they would be willing to mail me, I'd love to have them. I know that's borderline begging. And I'm being snobbish about it by only asking for Thimbleberries. They just don't play nice with other fabrics. I don't want any creams. I'll send you a recipe for great apple dumplings in return, written in my own hand, along with cream Thimbleberries to match the amount of fabric you send me. Seriously, ladies, if you have a bunch of small pieces of T'b and you're just going to let them rot, please send them my way.

To distract you from the begging above, I'm showing you quite possibly the cutest 8-year-old in the country, who happens to reside at MY house and calls me Mommy.




This was Ole Blue Eyes first thing this morning. Certifiably huggable, right??

I know I have some Thimbleberries that I will never use! Those that are large enough are yours!

Gee, Joan, I just went through my stack of what was FQs chopped up and have a stack of odd pieces. Send me your address and I will send you a bunch. Glad to get them out of the way.

Sounds like you need nickel squares. I don't have any new TB cause I rarely see it around here. But you are welcome to some of my vintage TB!

I found a few Thimbleberries pieces and might find more. Send your address. And, yes, he is certainly huggable!

I don't know why my comment didn't contain the link, so I will try again. Send your address. I guess I didn't click on the right button. Ruth
