Tumblers

I saw this quilt over at Modest Michelle and knew I had to have one for myself.  Ok not for me, for Hand 2 Help, this H2H quilt #4.  I'm making two of these, but daughter #4 claimed H2H #4's twin :)  I have it all pieced and ready to go.  Actually it's quilted but there wasn't enough natural day light to get a picture.  I'll post the finished quilt later in the week.  The colors are awful in this picture.  I'll try to get a better one when it's completed.

Here's some updated pics on the Tumblers - size is 66 x 74, batting hobbs 80/20, pantograph is flipping frawns and thread is glide on top, bottom line on the bottom.

And a start on my throw size triangle quilt.  I've got 14ish Amy Butler FQs all cut up and ready for my first ever triangle quilt.  So excited. Yep I used the accuquilt die for these.  I love this triangle die as much as I do the tumbler die.

Don't forget to check out the side bar for linky parties throughout the week.  Each one is different in it's own way, I love them all!!

  14. Those tumblers are lovely, and the quilting is fantastic. I think you'll really enjoy making a triangle quilt. I just made one myself as part of the #TraingleQAL at The Sassy Quilter.

  15. I love this pattern too. I bought templates and haven't made it yet. The repetitive nature is like working hexies. LeeAnna

  19. I'm close to finishing the top to my triangle quilt, and I'm using my in-progress tumbler blocks as leaders/enders, so I'm kinda-sorta doing two at once. :)
