Tumbler # 21-1 Silver & Multi

 This tumbler quilt was started last year, a challenge posted at Heartstrings and/or Stashbusters.  I cut from the scrap bins with the 4 inch tumbler die.  I used a silver print for the alternate blocks; sewed them all together and then it hung nicely on a hanger for a few months.  I like it when viewing from a distance,  but up close, it just looks all silver.

It finishes at 50 x 70.  I quilted 1/2 inch from the seams.  it went very smoothly.

I used cotton batting and a thick light gray fleece on the back.  I especially like the look of allover quilting the echo lines created when looking at the back.

  1. I think it is lovely---nice work--I have been fighting with joining the 3 sections of my QAYG method--won't do it again--not for the faint of heart for sure!!

  2. I like the effect of your tumbler quilt. I am making mine the same way - a consistent "light" print with alternating colours. Yours looks really good. Andrea MH xx

  3. I like the wave look, it is a beautiful quilt. Congrats!!!

  4. LOVELY tumbler finish, Kat! You are reminding me of a tumbler charity quilt that has been waiting patiently for me to quilt it, also made with the 4" AccuQuilt Tumbler die. Your zigzag quilting is very effective from both sides of the quilt. Congratulations!

  5. Oh I think it is awesome!! I really like that every other color/solid look!! It turned out so great!

  6. I like the layout a great deal! I makes a gook looking quilt! Well done!

  12. Hi Kat, that's a really cute tumbler quilt. I have one that's not quite a UFO but will be soon if I don't start sewing the tumbler shapes together :-) I like the simple quilting - it looks really great and suites it well. Thanks for linking up to Free Motion Mavericks. Take care.
