Lessons From Mama

My local quilt shop started a new Block of the Month last Saturday. For the past 2 years, the shop has had the Thimbleberries Big Quilt Block of the Month program. This year, the shop owner decided enough of the Thimbleberries BOM, and decided on "Lessons From Mama" by Atkinson Designs. I purchased the book, and then, each month, I will get a new kit for that month's block! I'm excited that I have already completed the first block before November ended!!! Perhaps I'm on to something!!

Conni, this looks like paper piecing, it's so perfect! Also, wondering how big is this block?

That looks so fun! I've been thinking about doing a BOM.

I really like Atkinson Designs. I think Terry Atkinson is a MN quilter, like me! ; )

What a pretty BOM, Conni! And a very interesting outer border to the finished quilt too! Good luck with it!

I stumbled onto your blog this morning, and I have to tell you that I made the Lessons From Mama quilt several years ago, and I love it! Yours will be beautiful. It's such a great pattern, and a BOM is a great way to do it!
