Question What to do with tumbler pieces

Hoping for an idea what I can do with many tumbler units I cut with the accru cutter at my local quilt shop, a few years back I went to an open day class and we were able to use the Accu Cutter I cut many tumblers, I used them for leaders and Enders and now have them in pairs of two. Any ideas what to do now. Would appreciate any input.

there are several pictures of tumbler block quilts on the internet. I had a bunch of big print fat quarters I did not know what to do with. So I cut them with the larger sized tumbler block die....then I just arranged them warm color, cool color, warm color ect. in rows. Then I arranged the rows so I did not have to match seams and made a lap sized throw quilt out of it. It turned out busy but cute enough.

Google has a lot of images using tumbler blocks. Search words: "Tumbler quilt blocks" on Google and then check images and you should have many pictures to give you ideas.

I just put together a throw size top of pink tumblers. It used 169 tumblers! Mine were the medium sized Accuquilt tumblers. This top is 38" x 52".

So pretty in pink! I am making a tumbler for donation now. It is the first one I have made and it is really turning out well.

I made a large tumbler quilt a few years ago with scraps sewn together. I donated it to a bazaar our church had and it sold for $400! Never underestimate quilts made from scraps.

I have made a number of smaller quilt with my tumbler blocks. As you know they make great borders but can also be made into the center piece of a quilt large or small. Here is one of mine.

I haven't made a tumbler quilt.

Ones above are very nice.
