    Finally Started My Alexander Henry Quilt

    Well this has been a planned project for a long time. Finally found the right pattern to make to showcase Alexander Henry fabrics since most of the prints are large scale. I spent most of today cutting 10" tumbler blocks. I got 116 cut...I still have probably 200 or more to go. The whole quilt including backing and binding will be Alexander Henry Fabrics

    You mentioned tumbler blocks. Will you be setting these large prints side by side or are you planning sashings or separator blocks between them?

    AH has always been the go-to manufacturer for these interesting large graphic prints; I've loved many of them over the years.

    can't wait to see progress pictures. I also love AH fabrics.
    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.

    Thanks everyone
    Jan no sashing as this is going to be a HUGE quilt without it. I am trying to put my entire collection of AH fabrics in so it is more than likely going to be 14 wide by 16 or 17 long (and the back will be AH prints as well.) I am including the selvedges from all of the fabrics on the back so it kind of documents what I used for me
    I love some of the names they use on their lines for sure Lynnie-Mr. Toad gets dressed will be in this quilt along with so many others!!
    I am up to 176 cut tumblers. I still have a contractor bag and a half to go through and cut!!
