Tumbler update...

Here the center of the tumbler quilt or... batik quilt or... selvage quilt. I am not sure what it wants to be when it grows up :)


Schnibble for November is finished...

Well... it was going to be out of autumn fabrics but... I have to admit I am kinda tired of them. I am not a huge autumn color fan... even though I love the season. So here is the first Schnibble that I have made that is really me. Out of a line called Riviera from Connecting Threads. I love the hot juicy colors...it isn't sideways ... I am :) (as you can tell by the top of the fence)

Speaking if Schnibbles... hop on over to Sinta's blog she is giving away some neat stuff for her 100th post.

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.

What I made for the Gobble Gobble Challenge From MBS

Moda Bake Shop and Pat Sloan posted a challenege last month. I already had the fabric but for some reason put off getting the quilt top done. Anyway... here is what I came up with... I truly love it and I haven't said that about one of my quilts in a while...
