Tumbler, Crumbler ...

Whatever you call it - it's done - well the top is anyway. I had so much fun making this quilt ~ playing with stash fabrics in colors of navy, aqua, gray, green and pink. You may remember I was using the "Crumbler", a ruler by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. for the cutting. There are lots of variations for setting the tumblers together, but I went with the classic. Couldn't have been easier or quicker.


And every point matched up with it's neighboring point ~ no pinning involved. By pressing the adjoining seams in opposite directions, they were super easy to lock together when sewing.


Couldn't be happier ~ in fact I'm ready to make another one. The possibilities are endless!

  8. Great colors! My tumbler quilt is on my California King bed and is one of my favorites. It's a tumbler charm quilt. 1152 charms later... But it's so special with all the different fabrics. Great job!
