Thimble Pleasures...

Quilt Shop Sharing
North Carolina
On a recent trip out east, there was this sweet little quilt shop..... Thimble Pleasures.
If you are ever in Chapel Hill, North Carolina it is a wonderful side step and well worth it.
This is a cute little panel they had, which just had to be purchased.
