    tumbler block with different layout

    Earlier in the week I posted a tumbler block quilt. When cutting those tumblers, I got carried away and had about 65 left over blocks. Waste not want not, right? Cut more, lots more, and did this one, and like this better.

    Wasn't fond of the black sash on the original quilt but too lazy to replace it, so today I used a brighter sash and much happier with this one.

    I have decided that when I am cutting to make a quilt, if I have a weird shaped piece, will just cut a tumbler and throw it in a bag. These became a bit addicting!

    Different sizes definitely adds interest to this quilt.

    I am a fan of tumbler quick blocks. Have made several quilts using tumbler pattern just never using different size tumbler blocks in the same quilt. That will be my project and probably soon. Thanks for sharing your quilt with the board members.
    Happy Labor Day weekend.

    I like that. I started a quilt with tumblers but now think it will be too large. I am thinking of taking half the tumblers and turning them on their sides for another quilt.

    Very nice! I had leftover tumblers of different sizes but didn't think of putting a sash in between the different sized rows.
