Thimbles and More Thimbles

My fingers have really been sore from all the hand quilting on the Turtle Quilt so I went to Quilt Country on Friday to get a variety of thimbles to see if they would help.

I bought a Clover Protect and Grip, a leather one with a deep dimpled end, and an UnderThimble.

I used all three of them this weekend and my fingers are much better. The UnderThimble helped a lot, and I cannot make up my mind between the Clover thimble and the leather one, so I switch between them each time I move the hoop.

I have completed one and a half sides of the border and I am very hopeful to finish this quilt soon, but obviously did not make my end of February deadline.
