    Another Spin on Tumbler Quilts

    I love how she did her Tumbler quilt...they are on the side so no cutting needed...I spent all day cutting up pieces and cant wait to do it this way....love the borders strips in between each of the tumbler strips.

    She also has some great FMQ tutorials.

    I started making this today..I am going to make it a King size...I hope...I am sewing 42 small tumblers, down...that looks like it will fit the bed well. I sewed all of my scrappy pieces..I will need to cut more...many more. The solid strips will most likely be 6 1/2 inch. I can't wait to see how this is going to look.

    I got the tumbler die cut for my AccuQuilt Go for Christmas and so I am really excited about this pattern. I think it calms down the tumbler quilt and will also make it go faster! Thanks so much for posting the link!

    I have the large tumbler die and can cut and sew a bed size quilt in an afternoon. I think this pattern will cut at least an hour or more from that time!
    Got fabric?
