Tumbler Quilt Completed!

Here is the first of 2 quilts that were finished for my mother-in-law for her spare room.  It might seem familiar and that is because I posted about it back in April!



Following Autumn's advice I did straight stitching down the columns of tumblers.  It was bit of a struggle to (wo)man-handle the 6' long quilt...but I got there in the end :o)



The shapes were cut using the large tumbler die from Accu-quilt which made piecing it a breeze.



It was delivered last weekend along with it's fraternal twin which I'll post about tomorrow!


Until next time....

I hear you on the (Wo)man-handle thing, lol. This is such a pretty quilt and the Tumbler Block shape is a lot of fun. The quilts will be wonderful for her guest room. Lucky guests!

There's something so satisfying about simple tessellating shapes. And such pretty colours too.
