Mini Tumbler Quilt!

I wasn't up to doing too much yesterday, so I grabbed my box of scraps and made myself a little tumbler quilt. I found a template online and used the inside dimensions of the 2", then added the quarter inch to make it smaller. I was looking for a one inch tumbler, but didn't see any. I sewed the pieces by hand, but decided to sew the rows by machine;) Also the border was machine sewed, but the rest I hand stitched with floss. It is a fun project to do and I think it would be fun to do in Christmas colors too. Great way to use up those scraps and great gift idea for friends. I do have a Go tumbler die and plan on making a large one for myself.

This piece measures a little over 11" x 8". I also stained it with walnut spray, after it was finished.

Debbie,
It's a darling little quilt. You did a fabulous job on it. So fun to do little quilts amd get them dome quickly. It gives the satisfaction of finishing and you don't have days or months or years tied into the project! Take care, Lori

So cute. I want to make a mini-tumbler . . . . someday. The sad part is I have the fabric and template - just need to sit down and DO IT. Hopefully you have inspired me.
