I've been looking at so many patterns and there are so many choices but I've decided to start with the tumbler. I'd seen a video of a tumbler quilt made with charm squares and a specialty ruler. So I cut my own 5" charm squares and used one of my wedge rulers and made my own template. There is practically no waste using 5" squares.
We got home last weekend from a week at our timeshare in the NC mountains. Can I say heaven?? We spent time with the grands and our kids but I did get one alone morning. The hubby was playing golf, the windows were open, I had a cup of coffee and I just savored some quiet time with my sewing machine. I didn't get many blocks actually sewn together, but I did get a bunch cut out.
I didn't have to work today, so I really went to town chain piecing. This pattern goes together so fast!! I said that I wanted to do 4 different patterns, but it's tempting to make more than one of this one.
So far I'm really liking it. I'm thinking that I won't put a border on it, just square up the sides. Once I've got it laid out, I'll sew sections together and then sew the rows together.
Here's a picture that I took for my sister, the flowers were glorious!! It's just so hot here in Florida - they don't look like this.
It's good to be home, hope you get some stitiching time.
