BOM Mini-series Part 2: Thimbleberries Village Green

Today's our 2nd part of our 2-week BOM Mini-series -- we're really excited by the response so far to Part 1!! Hope you like Part 2 just as much. Debbie is stepping in today to introduce the Thimbleberries Club for 2010, which we just put online this morning, so it's fresh and ready to be ogled LOL!

Fall is just around the corner with the new 2010 Thimbleberries Club. And we were not disappointed this year! This year's club is Village Green 2010 Block of the Month! This 12-month series features one quilt measuring 72" X 82" finished. And, like the 2009 club, there are three wonderful colorways to suit your fancy: Dawn (light), Dusk (medium) and Midnight (dark).

Tradition, tradition, tradition (Fiddler on the Roof, anyone?) -- Lynette Jensen is known for her traditional row-houses, and she doesn't disappoint this season with ten houses tucked in among stars, flowers, trees and fences. And we love the thought of "Village Green"! Kinda gets us all thinking about how we can green up our own communities.
When you join our Village Green BOM, you will receive all the fabric you need to complete the quilt top and binding. We also have a 44" wide backing set available separately. As a member of our Thimbleberries Club you will also receive monthly accessory project patterns as well as two bonus project patterns! The bonus quilt projects include instructions for The Throw Quilt and The Queen Quilt.
So which colorway is your favorite? Sign up before the spots for your colorway are taken! This block of the month starts in January 2010 and ends in December of 2010. Maybe even gather your friends and do this project as a monthly get-together!

We will be blogging about the new additional 2010 Thimbleberries Village Green Kit Klub in the next few days, so be watching for more on Thimbleberries!

Debbie T.

Nicole said...

I love the Dawn colorway. I love this BOM!! It seems kind of Frank Lloyd Wright "arts and crafts" style to me....which fits right in here since I live in a craftsman bungalow. That certainly means I should join this.....right??

Jeannette said...

The dawn colourway or the midnight I cannot decide.Please count me in the draw.

Deb Silva said...

I would have to say that the Dawn is my favorite.

Kim said...

Okay, yes, I like Dusk best so far, but that's based on first impressions. And yes, I did indeed mention this on my blog--BEFORE I KNEW THERE WAS A GIVEAWAY INVOLVED. Does that net me extra points?! LOL! Here's a link to my blog post:
http://kimsbigquiltingadventure.blogspot.com/2009/08/second-opinion.html It would be every so cool if I could WIN so I might be able to achieve just a small, small percentage of the fabric Ms. LA Quilter has amassed. If CALIFORNIA ever DOES fall into the ocean, I'm guessing it will be from the weight of the fabric in that condo!

searchfamilies said...

I would love to be entered in for this my favourite is Dawn.

scrapatches said...

I like this Thimbleberries Club ... a lot! I do enjoy Lynette Jensen's traditional fabrics and patterns and have used her fabrics and made some of her projects before ... but never the club ones. Hmmmm ... maybe this is a good year to change that! All the colorways are nice, but I think I would choose "Midnight"... very striking! ... :-) Pat

I think my fave is the "midnight"!

Peggy said...

I absolutely love the midnight colorway. The stars twinkle in the sky. What a great quilt. BTW, $100 is a fabulous giveaway. Thank you!!!

I prefer the Dawn colorway! I just love those first hours of morning.

julia said...

Hmmm...it's a Quentin Tarantino Dilemma'...I'm torn 'from dusk till dawn'...heehee, I mean, between 'DUSK' and 'DAWN'! Although all three are beautiful, but I think if I have to reduce it to one it would be the lightest version...
Cheers,
Julia
