I pulled out my Tumbler quilt from almost a year ago. I began this at the annual January retreat last January and have done very little since. Well, I started working on it again and had hoped to get a bit more done and possibly finish it at this year's retreat. This is by no means my oldest UFO, but it is a UFO and for some reason it has been calling my name to work on it. Well, here it is. I guess I need to find another UFO to take on the retreat - like that'll be a problem! :-) Thanks Linda for your layout. It's perfect and doesn't make me have to bind all those side twists and turns!
This quilt is kind of big, about 82" x 102" and it has 577 different fabrics in it! It's laid out 25 across by 23 down and each block is a different fabric. I used a single off-white fabric for the half blocks that finish off each row and frame the top and bottom. And finally, I used another fabric (remenants from a 2008 project) for the outside border. I know exactly which project in which I had used this fabric and I had long strips that I just couldn't bring myself to throw away. You can see the project here. Well, it's found a home and is a perfect fit. I only have about 6" x 3" left over. Awesome!!
This makes three tops that have been finished this year and I already had a bunch to quilt from the last couple of years. Perhaps I should concentrate on some quilting rather than piecing for a little bit.
