Make Yourself At Home!

It’s an invitation to pull up a chair and stay for dinner. Or, permission to prop your feet on the couch and rest your head on the pillows. It’s the kindest way to say, “You’re welcome here.” With the cheerful inviting tones throughout the designs you’re guests will not only be impressed, but will want to stay and make one themselves. “Make Yourself at Home” will become a delighted phrase in every household. As you learn fun embroidery techniques and enjoy the traditional piecing of Kimberbell’s feature quilt, you and your guests will delight in all the details. From the table topper and tea towels to our bench pillow with coordinating bench buddies, the additional bonus projects provide endless possibilities for your home.

Kimberbell’s all-new decorative quilt features a cheerful assortment of applique and embroidered blocks including homes of all shapes and sizes, a cozy couch, sofa, and loveseat, floor lamps, chenille potted plants, and sweet sentiments. You’ll learn fun embroidery techniques and enjoy traditional piecing with each block. With over more than 20 embroidered blocks you can choose between eight embroidered houses—from your first apartment building, to a two-story in the suburbs, then grandpa and grandma’s farmhouse, even a retro RV. 

Traditional quilt blocks include pinwheels, a large windmill star, flying geese, plus stars to frame the embroidered sentiment blocks.

Pieced picture blocks include the tall floor lamp, sofa, and apartment building.

Delight in every detail like polka-dot glitter lamp shades with fringe borders, chenille succulent stems, and ribbon flowers. Flexi foam add soft dimension to the couch cushions. Mylar and vinyl brighten the lampposts and house windows. Use twine for the lamp pulls and to string the quilted pennants together. Sew the darling adornments too like the miniature quilt and bench pillows you’ll find in the companion embellishment kit. Finished size: 44 x 60″

Neighborhood Block Party Table Topper


A neighborhood of colorful applique homes frames a pieced patchwork block on this delightful table topper. Mylar gives light to the lampposts and trees add a bit of green space to the darling city streets.

A charming way to bring a burst of color to the dining room or coffee table, this table topper is made entirely from a pack of 5” fabric squares and a bit of yardage. Scrap piecing in the center is accentuated by orange peel quilting.

All embroidered designs for the table topper can be stitched in a 5 x 7 hoop. Finished size: 26 x 26″

Decorative Tea Towels

If You Can Read This, Dry The Dishes.

If I Have To Stir It, It’s Homemade.

We call them tea towels because that sounds nice, but truthfully, we need them for dirty hands and dishes. However, a clever cute dish towel would definitely make the job more fun. Adorable for your own kitchen décor and perfect for your neighbor’s house too, both applique label designs are stitched directly on our new polka dot tea towels in warm gray and red.

Build your Own Neighborhood Bench Pillow

Home is Where You Place Your Bench Pillow. In the tradition of Kimberbell’s signature Bench Pillows, you can build your own neighborhood! With an assortment of eight houses including a retro RV, paired with eight themed accent applique blocks and six sentiments, you can create and customize a variety of bench pillow covers. Then, with just one pillow form, change the cover for every season. Wherever your loved one reports for duty and no matter the branch of service, the sacrifice made by an entire family earns our respect. With patriotic flags and fireworks, this neighborhood can represent each place your military family has called home while serving in the armed forces. All blocks can be embroidered in a 5×7 hoop! Approximate size: 16 x 38”

Includes the following sentiments blocks:

Home is Where the Military Sends Us

Home is Where the Heart Is

Home is Wherever We Are Together

Home is Where the Haunt Is

Home is Where You Fall in Love

Home is Where Our Pets Are

Home is Where the Military Sends Us

Coordinating Bench Buddies

    Do you attend quilt shows/events? If so, where could I find a schedule? There are items I’d like to purchase that are not available at my local quilt store. Thank you!

    I wish you offered a coded thread color chart with commonly used threads for your designs. Yes, I know I can choose my own but would like to not have to take the time to choose. It’s just easier – quicker to know what was used. Thank you. Cute designs!
