More Tumbler Die Fun



I decided to cut up all my 1930's fabrics into the tumbler shape. I am not even sure why I bought these but they have not been used much.

Once again, these quilts went together super fast and I figured out the border sizes for future ones. This will bust all that stash and produce about 4 - 6 more quilts for the children at our local hospital.

I tried the teardrop free motion quilt pattern on these and really like that. I spaced the shapes far enough apart that the quilt will be soft and not quilted into a board.

Love the 30's fabric with the tumbler die. I have a drawer full of this fabric.... may have to do one of these after I get all the dresden plates cut. Hmmmm....

30s are such lovely soft colours. Love the tumbler quilts :)

I am thinking of getting the tumbler template myself. Are you using the large or smaller one? Which would you recommend. The quilts are gorgeous!
