I like to think of myself as a wannabe history buff sometimes. Other times a wannabe etymologist. So I want to know where this term came from. I spent some time this evening researching, but no luck. I could easily lose hours upon hours searching for something on the Internet.
I quilted this cute little Thimbleberries top for Joanie, and used an old-fashioned Baptist Fan quilting pattern, (which has recently made a resurgence among "modern" quilters). It's a great edge to edge treatment that works great on many quilt tops.
Where the heck did this name come from? Do you know? Please share with us here if you do know!
