I've had some fabrics picked out for a while sitting on my cutting table. But I had another quilt I need to finish before I could move onto something new. I have to say It's all pinned and ready to be quilted. I still have a couple of weeks before my deadline! So I'm good!
So I couldn't sleep last night so I started about 10PM and went to bed at 1:30AM. But look what I got done, I cut out all the pieces and laid out the quilt top! I'm a little tired this morning but it felt so great to get this far! I wanted to make a quilt that was quick and easy and I could use up some of my fabrics from my stash.
I decided on a tumbler quilt, I saw this really cute one over at Saltwater Quilts and thought it would be a fun easy quilt to make.
I took a 5" piece of cardboard to make my template,
marking 1" in for the side on the top.
The top of the tumbler is 3" and the bottom is 5".
Then I cut strips of fabric 5" wide and started cutting.
I cut multiple strips at once, between 4 and 6 layers.
I found it easier to use a ruler with my cardboard temple,
that way I didn't cut into the cardboard.
One Tumbler block!
Here's a whole bunch of them laid out.
I will stack them in rows and number them.
Then sew the rows together.
More to come later.
While I was sitting her typing this at the kitchen table I looked up to see I had a visiter...
Happy Fathers Day!
Enjoy your day everyone and thank you for stopping by!
