Tumbling....

I have had a wish to make a tumbler quilt for a while... and I have wanted to do a selvage project. I combined the two to come up with this...

These are the tumbler charms and I have already pinned the pieces of selvage to the muslin (the pile in the lower left corner) The tumblers I bought pre-cut from Canton Village Quilt Works... I also bought muslin ones to use as foundations for the selvages. All but a few of the selvages are Kaffe Fassett fabrics that I also bought from Jackie.







Here are all of the tumblers sewn and trimmed and layed out. The left over blocks I cut in half to make the side pieces the make the whole thing rectangular.









I am going to piece it all together today hopefully. I will show a pic when it is finished. After the center is done I am going to add a few borders and I might continue to make it bedsize.
