if this idea is going to work

If I want a whole stockpile of things ready to sew when the weather warms up, I'm going to have to keep cutting fabric faster than I sew the pieces together. This tumbler quilt is going together so quickly, and is so fun to work on, that I might have trouble managing that.

In this picture, the rows are laid out the right way. Isn't it amazing what a difference that makes?



See the sunglight glaring off of the fabric at the top of the picture? I'm not about to complain about the gorgeous weather we had this weekend, even if it does mess up pictures of my WIP!



There's no real plan here, just a bunch of dark scraps and an AccuQuilt die I hadn't used yet. To see more design walls, head over to Patchwork Times.

Did you know that you can get the old Blogger dashboard back?! I found the instructions, which are amazingly simple, over at Quiltsalott. As far as I can tell, it put everything back the way it used to be. Do I even need to tell you how happy that makes me?

I love your quilt and the colors you chose. I have a quilt with this pattern that belonged to my aunt. I keep it out and hung over a railing, but never knew what the pattern was called. Thanks for sharing.

It is the year to tumble it seams...lol... I love the top. But for me, to cut out hundreds of those little suckers, is like the hexie thing last year...not enough time for moi...I am going to go and fix my dashboard right now...why oh why don't they ask us if we want it?

Loving this quilt - but yes, you do have to cut faster, lol! I need to get a bunch of projects kitted up, I'd love to have them ready to just pick up and work on as the urge hits me. Glad someone's getting sun...it's raining again tonight here!

Vicki said...

Love your tumblers. I guess I need to make that my next Go Cutter die. So pretty. I also hate the new blogger but I hear that it will automatically change to the new one soon.

Your quilt is coming along beautifully. Love the colors. When I tried changing back to the old blogger it said that it would only be available for a month so I've bitten the bullet and am trying to get used to the newer version. I wish they would leave well enough alone.
