    tumbler and charm quilts

    Here are pics of a couple of quilts I have made. This one I saw on the cover of a scrappy magazine and had to make it. I used 3.5 tumblers that I cut with the accuquilt Go. I tried to only use civil war repro fabrics. It is full size and has1240 tumblers.

    I made this one because I wanted to try something with a decorative stitch. It is a lap quilt made from Moda Wool and Needle Charm packs and a flannel back. Name:  flannel.jpg

    Lovely quilts! I am in love with that tumbler! I have been collecting tumbler pieces for a bit, but don't have nearly that many. I can't wait to make one. Well done!

    Yum - such beauties! Especially love the wool quilt cause it brings back memories of being a kid and sleeping in the attic snuggled up under one or two or a pile of these!
