Tumblers

This quilt must have been ALMOST done
when I put it away a few months ago!!!

It sure didn't take long to get it DONE!
 
It helped that I was stuck at home today
with a sick child.
A child that didn't need a nurse.
Just needed a day or so to let the cough
and sniffles calm down.
;)
 

I'm calling this one my
"FOR THE LOVE OF OLIVE" quilt.

The backing was purchased on impulse
a long time ago.
 
I love the way it goes with the green tumblers in there.

This is a comfort quilt.
Just the kind I LIKE!

It's full of old, new, ugly, cute,
green, blue, pink, purple.....
orange!, gold....

Next time
**cough, cough...**
I make a tumbler quilt...
I'm going to BEGIN with a GO cutter
and not a little plastic doohickey
that requires
rotary cutting.
rotary cutting.
cutting.
and MORE
cutting.

  1. Looks great Beth. I have the go tumbler but I really wish they would make a smaller one. I emailed them about it but nothing yet.

  2. Beautiful tumbler quilt. Love the idea of using scraps to make one and I did get a die for it, much easier than cutting by hand.

  4. Lovely Beth.
    Were you just stitching binding to finish it?

    It makes me think I should be cutting some more tumblers and getting onto making mine.

    Thanks for sharing.

  9. It's a wonderful comfort quilt. :) And isn't all of that cutting and cutting and cutting the part that connects us to our ancestors? LOL

  10. so pretty and colorful..love the way you put the lights and darks together. scrappy quilts are always so nice.

    I made one using larger tumblers that I cut with my GO Cutter.( have a picture of it in an earlier post on my blog). I have the little tumbler die too. I have some cut out so I guess I have to sit at my machine and put them together.

    I hope your young one is feeling better

  16. Scrap quilts are the best! They have so much personality!!! Personally, I think they help us bond with our quilting sisters from yesteryear!!!

  25. Wow! That is one gorgeous quilt! And even with the GO, it would still be a lot of cutting and a lot of sewing. Great job!
