    Tumbler quilt finished

    Finished up this scrap quilt. I used a GO! tumbler die to cut all the tumblers and when I ran out of pieces of fabric scraps large enough I pieced scraps into large enough pieces and cut them.

    I included a closeup of the quilting that I did. Lots of practice of feather plumes.

    It looks like a box of easter eggs! Wonderful quilt and I am sure will become a favorite.

    It looks fabulous! I agree that it looks like Easter eggs. I like that you bound it with the tumbler edge. 👍

    that looks so modern! I think the pieced tumbler blocks really give it life--super job (and by not slicing off the edges to make it easy to bind, it really does look sharp!)

    Very pretty and refreshing use of scraps. I also like the tumblers you pieced and the way you finished the edge. I would think that it was fun to make.

    You did a great job with this scrappy tumbler quilt! I have made a couple quilts with my tumbler ruler template, but was never ambitious enough to bind with tumbler edge. Kudos to you ... that really adds to the interest of the quilt. And I really like the feather plume design you used for FMQ. I am making notes to self for next time I make a tumbler quilt ... thanks for sharing these pictures. BTW, how large is your quilt?

    Thanks for the kind words everyone. This was a fun quilt to make.

    I quilted it on my Tiara midarm.

    It is about a generous single/stingy double size.

    Binding the tumbler edges wasn't hard. Bias binding and using the same technique as a regular corner...sewing off at a 45 degree angle, but when I folded them on the right side, I sort of only folded half the 45 degree angle. At the inside corners I just pivoted.
