    You know, I did a 3" square block, scrappy king-sized quilt for my DIL and son. It's still on their bed, but I thought it would drive me insane by the time it was all said and done. Your postage stamp is beautiful, but -- may I say you are crazier than me?!

    A tumbler is something I'd love to do if I could ever get caught up with dangling projects. Darnit, people are waiting on them and I have had no desire to sew for the last few weeks.

    I am doing scrappy tumblers also. Love the simplicity of
    the sewing & cutting. Husband made a template for me &
    piecing goes quickly with no stress.

    I agree, this one goes so fast. I have a template and try & use as many different prints as I can.

    I love tumbler quilts, both looking at someone else's and making my own. I did one recently with large tumblers and all the fabrics sewing or quilting related. Really like yours, so bright and colorful.
