I've been using Pinterest to find tumbler quilts finished the way I like them. Instead of doing an all over design I would like to echo all the stitching lines. I'm going to use black and blue thread so the stitching becomes part of the quilt pattern.
I have been leaving comments on blogs asking the folks for help.
I don't know if I start in the middle or the edge.
I don't know if I do all in one direction (the straight seams or the angled ones).
I don't know if I do an X to divide and do one quarter at a time.
I want to do the straight stitching for this quilt but can pick another edge to edge design and finish using a LeahDay design too. I would like this quilt finished so I can give it to our friend in Colorado.
I have been back from Boston since mid-August but only feeling like I have time to get organized to start new projects and finish old ones!
I forgot to keep all the URLs for the tumbler I saw. So many beautiful choices....

I don't really know how to use Pinterest, but have been collecting some sites there... it's really fun to look for different images...
