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!!
