“Sew, Let’s Quilt Along” Block 13 Release!


Today is the release of the final block of the Sew Let’s Quilt Along, Block 13, “Who’s Got the Thimble?” designed by April Adams of JANDA Bend Quilts. This is a pieced block with a fun twist, one of the thimbles is missing!

“Who’s Got the Thimble?” 12” block by April Adams

I have never made a tumbler block before so this was extra fun for me. I’m so pleased with how it turned out.

April’s pattern provides precise directions to cutting you tumbler’s with a rotary cutter and ruler or with an Accuquilt die.

The thimble and tumbler pieces are reverse of each other and at first the sewing of the two together took a bit to get used to. Though sewn on an angle the two pieces will press apart to lie as a straight piece.


Have fun with your thimbles! It’s always a pleasure to see what everyone makes.

Please visit the Segment 3 hosts to see this block in a variety of fabric and color inspirations. Hosts also provide their own tips to sewing the block, as well as answer any questions you have.
