Tumbler Progress

As I have time, I've been working on the tumbler quilt.  I realized after putting the pieces on the table that I hadn't counted the beige pieces so I will have enough for a lap quilt, maybe a twin even!

I decided to end the rows with a color - so then will cut some beige pieces in half and put on the ends to make them straight.  Originally I had ended both sides with a beige piece, but when I figured out how to make the straight edges, I didn't like the idea of having so much beige (especially since I may decide to add borders to make the quilt larger).

I didn't want the colors to be in rows so made it so there are some splots of color. I'm not sure if anyone can 'see' what I was thinking, but I'm going with it now...

I want to work on my speed in making projects during the next year. My family has been using sleeping bags instead of quilts for ever - 2012 will be the year they get quilts!


  1. What a gorgeous top! I love the layout, especially the spot of yellows near the top! Great job!

  2. Thank you for visiting Melissa! The yellow part is my favorite too - I hope they will stand out when it's all finished up!
