Hometown Christmas

I purchased this kit in 2004!  Yes, that's right 2004.......Every fall I'd tell myself to pull it out and get working on it but every year something else would come up and it would sit. 
Hometown Christmas is a Thimbleberries kit comprising of 4 booklets.  I promised myself back in 2011 that I'd do a booklet every 2-3 months and get it done....well, that didn't happen, although I did work on it here and there, just not on a regular basis.  In May of 2012 I made the decision that it was getting done come hell or high water so I got working on it in between other projects. 
Last week I put the finished center up on the design wall and when hubby saw it he made sure I knew he liked it and would love to see it on our bed this winter. 

It's so big I don't have a single spot where I can lay it out and get a good picture....(hence the wrinkles in the border)


Here's a closeup of some of the blocks...

I am prepare for it being quilted too....I purchased the backing last week so it will be mailed to my favorite quilter on Monday!

It is a bit small for a king size bed, and I'll show hubby that it doesn't fit quite right so it might have to be for my son's room.

If there's anyone out there in blogland that would like the patterns for this quilt, leave me a message and I'll mail it out to you Monday.  First come first serve!
It was a fun quilt to make but I doubt I'll ever do it again.

Your quilt is beautiful and I would love to make one. It's a little out of my comfort zone, but it looks like it would be a joy to make.
