This month’s post is a little different.
First, I didn’t finish the project I had in mind, I’ve just been super busy with other things.
starting next month, I’m going to be a monthly guest blogger on Accuquilt’s blog on the 15th!!!
First I’ll show you what I had in mind for this month, but didn’t finish yet….
A Christmas tumbler quilt!
I did a tutorial for EQ about it here
But this is not an ordinary tumbler quilt!
it’s all random and scrappy.
I sewed scraps of red together very randomly even at angles.
Even at angles!
Then sewed it big enough to fit the large GO tumbler die
(it’s on sale BTW on the accuquilt’s site)
I used my assistants to cut them out
But that’s how far I got, I got a pile of red ones and haven’t started green nor white, I’m thinking about doing one of the colors in just a solid or maybe both of them, but I don’t have a lot of nice green fabrics that would be Christmas like, so I MAY need to place an order ;)
Have a look at my tumbler EQ tutorial post for more inspiration, tumblers are a lot of fun!
and there’s quite a few (including some of mine) on the accuquilt’s website too under ideas here.
and of course there’s a ton on pinterest too.
Stay cool in the summer, my kids have a week left at home before starting school on the 24th!
