the tumbler quilt [a quilty finish!]

It's a quilty finish! Woot, woot!

Way back in July, my Go! Baby landed on my doorstep just days before a trip to the lake. So I packed an assortment of Kona cottons and my Go! Baby + tumbler die and headed North for a week long of sewing and fishing fun.  One week later, the quilt top was complete. And then it sat...and sat...and sat. Pretty much par for the course. :)

Until this past weekend.  Like I said, Sewing Summit nerves are translating into some serious sewing mojo and the urge to finish up some old WiPs. So I pieced a back, basted and quilted this all in one day!

I decided to go with a wavy organic quilting (my new fav!) and follow the direction of the tumbler pattern. If you haven't given this method of quilting a try, I highly recommend it! Similar to straight line quilting, your walking foot makes it easy-peasy.

There's something so great about a quilt fresh out of the wash. So crinkly and yummy!

  21. Love the tumbler block and the colors too! Hmm I would love to win that Go! Baby--hint-hint :)

    I wonder...Is it hard to match up those tumbler pieces so that your rows are straight? I think I would struggle with that.
