Another quilt finished!

Whew! Finally finished! This is a Thimbleberries Block-of-the-Month quilt that's been sitting in my linen closet since 2002. I finally got the quilting done (it was quilted by the Country Sampler in Papillion). I think I had finished piecing it just before we did our military move to Vandenberg AFB, and I was just so exhausted that I didn't have any energy to pick it up again. I had all of the blocks finished. I just needed to add the border, get it quilted and bind it. So....Voila!! Here it is!!
If you follow it from the top left, going across, you'll see each block represents a month on the calendar:
January: Snowflake
February: Hearts
March: Four leaf clover
April: Tulips
May: Flower basket
June: Pinwheels
July: Fourth of July Americana block
August: Sunflower
September: Schoolhouse (back to school)
October: Pumpkins
November: Pine cone
December: Christmas Tree

Thank you for stopping by!

You've done a great job on this quilt.
Absolutely fantastic!
OK, how did I come across your blog?
I was searching for this very pattern, and after google-ing it about a zillion times and ways, yours is about the only one that consistantly came up.
I've been after one block from the pattern, the August Sunflower block, for ages. It doesn't seem to be available anywhere that I can find.
I am wondering if you would be wiling to part with it? Please?
*on knees asking very nicely*
Or maybe you know of someone else who has the pattern and would be willing to sell it.
Hope you can help, but if not I totally understand.
Keep up the great work!
