2277...

...tumbler blocks sewn together into strips = 3 larger than lap size quilts.

I have no idea how these will look yet, I haven't spread them out side by side. I have just been following the colour layout I played with in EQ5, and hoping for the best! I will wait until I have all the strips sewn into a top before I look at the finished top..hopefully I have sewn the colours in the correct order (eeek, maybe I should have a peek) No, I won't have a peek, I will just frog if necessary. If you squint, perhaps you can kind of see how these tumblers will look


Here is the "left over" tumblers I still have to play with...I have already made 7 quilts out of these, there must be enough for another 3-4 quilts there!

You should see what a difference I have made in the stash pile though...it is a great way to clear out the "what to do with this" fabric! You will have to wait for the end of year photo to see how well I have done at using the stash (meanwhilet he knitting stash increases!)

That is a lot of tumbers! Are they charms? (as in no 2 alike?)

Although, the strips aren't sewn together, yet, they're looking great and I think it will be a colourful scrapquilt.Martina

Oh my, I so wish you and I were neighbours and you could teach me how to patch like that. Amazing. xx

Wow! What a quilt. I love it. I'll bet that really ate into your stash.....LOL

Andrea said...

Wow - can't believe how many tumbler patches you've made. I'm sure they will be as great as your previous quilts. Do you have plans for them once they're finished ?
