There is still so much to be finished in the next week...and yet I started a new quilt today!
It's always fun to sew with Vintage Modern. I'm using the pattern "Sugar Dish" by Allison of Cluck Cluck Sew. I'm altering the pattern a bit, though; I made 63 blocks and will add a 5" border to make a twin size quilt. I'm also not making any of the Dresden blocks. I'm hoping to set the blocks together tomorrow. This quilt is for the daughter of a friend of mine...her baby sister already has a Vintage Modern quilt, and since they'll soon be sharing a room, big sister needed a matching quilt!
I'm determined to make a couple more tumbler projects before the end of the year as well. You might remember my Sew Cherry tumbler mat...
And my Vintage Modern tumbler mat...
And my Odds & Ends tumbler table runner. It seems I just couldn't get enough of this shape in 2012! I'm not at all tired of tumblers! In fact, lately I've been looking at every collection with tumblers in mind.
To make my tumbler obsession even worse, this new tumbler template by Carrie Nelson (aka Miss Rosie's Quilt Company) arrived the other day. I must say this is one wonderful template; I spent one evening reading the instructions cover to cover. The instructions are actually simple with a lot of terrific information to help with designing tumbler projects. So, needless to say, I had to cut some tumblers for my after Christmas sewing.
I cut up half a Layer Cake of Notebook by Sweetwater into tumblers...
I made these 5"--a couple of inches bigger than my earlier tumblers. I think this is a good size...big enough to sew together quickly, but still small enough to be cute!
I might have also cut up half of a Layer Cake of The Simple Life by Tasha Noel...I must say I have no idea what these tumblers will turn into, but I'll definitely be sewing them soon!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
