I just finished a tumbler bed runner and was wondering how you would quilt it.
Would you use SID or a pattern.
Your replys would be appreciated.
I forgot to mention, every other block is white.
DGD wanted it that way.
Thanks

how big are the tumblers? I'd probably do an all over pattern on a tumbler, but that's only because sometimes my seams aren't perfect and I wouldn't want to have an angle in my SID.

i'd do an all over pattern with gentle curves, not too dense

I do all over meandering and love how it comes out. I would not do stitch in the ditch. It makes it to puffy unless you like that look.

The tumbler is a very old pattern so I think I would do something very simplified like " inside all the seams. That way your quilting would show but not detract from the simplicity of the pattern. JMHO

I just finished a full/queen tumbler quilt with an allover pattern of loopy swirls - it's one of my favorite designs.

With all the circular lines of stitching, it hides imperfect piecing and when you wash it, it crinkles up and turns "vintage" looking. :)

I've seen one done this way and it was striking!

My sister finished one using a decorative stitch over all of the seams. Looks beautiful! The fabric and batting were unwashed, and the batting was Warm and Natural. Thread was Aurifil variegated 40 wt.

That sounds like a great idea! Can you post a picture of it?
