During the 2006 - 2008 there were several Thimbleberries monthly clubs outside of the regular Thimbleberries BOM Club. I started working on it back in 2013, you can read the posts about it here. I finished the top, and put it away until the end of 2016, when I was able to send it off to my long arm quilter.
Here is a list of the clubs I participated in (purchasing a kit a month) during these two years. With the exception of Anniversary Club, Christmas Clubs, and Cover Story Club, each lasted 12 months, with a kit coming in the mail each month. 60%- 70% of the kits were full sized quilts, with the rest being throws or wall hangings. The Anniversary Club covered 24 months with a kit coming every other month. Each of its kits were a full sized quilt, and backing included. The Christmas Clubs were for six months, and the Cover Story Clubs were four months.
This is a lot of kits to complete.

Now onto this quilt. It is a kit from the Room by Room Club for May, 2008. The name of this quilt is called Autumn Retreat, and is a pattern in her BK 290, called Cranberry Harvest.
This is a over-sized twin quilt done in alternating block patterns with a flying geese inner border.
One of the two block patterns.
The other one of the two block pattern.
Backing fabric that matches the fabric in one of the blocks. I found enough of it online through eBay.
Right now, it is going into my finished collection. I don't have any specific plans for it. When I do, I will be sure to share.
