    Tumbler Quilt

    I am thinking about making a tumbler quilt or some call it thimble quilt, have any of you made one? If so, could you possibly post some pictures so I can see them? Thank you.

    I have made one, sorry I don't have a pic. Just put tumbler quilt pics in a google search and you'll see many.

    I love them!! I made one many years ago. I would take a pic of it but I brought it to the vet hospital, to keep my dog company after his surgery, and they lost it . It was getting worn out, anyway.

    Mine was a charm tumbler. I used each fabric only once. I want to make another plus a mini tumbler doll quilt.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Wow! That is gorgeous and the tumblers are small, too!

    I made my first one after seeing one at a quilt show, also. I had one of the helpers measure the size of the tumblers (this was back in the day before computers, rotary cutters, etc) and I cut them all out using a template that I made out of a piece of cardboard.

    Here is a blog entry about them and sort of shows how they are put together:

    I am making one right now. Using the 10" Tumbler template I bought from Missouri Star Quilt Co. The fabrics I am using are from the Farmer's Market collection. It is fun and not difficult, but there are alot of bias edges, starch heavily. I cannot post a picture because I don't know how and I don't have a camera. Very technologically challenged.

    This is a vintage top that I bought on eBay - looks like a mix of new and used fabrics from the 30's & 40's and maybe 50's. It's beautifully pieced by machine and my quilting doesn't do it justice, but it's bright and cheerful and soft.
