That's very pretty and the older fabrics remind me alot of mine that got lost at the vet hospital I wouldn't have minded so much if my dog was actually using it when I came to visit him but it was missing the next day. Oh, well, I'm sure somebody else's dog will get some comfort from it.

I made this tumbler table runner for my friend last Halloween. I love the tumbler and have already started another one.

I'm making one right now also. I'm using the small Accuquilt die (I think it's 3 1/2"). I will be cutting for a while . . . . I only have about 100 tumblers so far.

I have been wanting to make a tumbler quilt but haven't yet. I guess it falls in with wanting to make a dresden plate and haven't done one of those yet either.
