So.. Recently I have been enjoying an old patchwork pattern called "Tumbler".
I'm not sure but I'm guessing the shape resembles a drinking glass..a tumbler.
The template for cutting this shape is available at Assemble. ( and other quilt shops, I'm sure!).
These fabrics are from Amy Butler, a contemporary fabric designer.. I love her style...
This quilt is MINE...currently hanging in my living room...
The "tumblers" are about 3 1/2" tall.
These "tumblers" are much bigger.
The fabrics are from daughter in law Pam's stash of owl fabric.
Last spring she was in London with her mom for a week... so I took her owl stash and cut from it to make her a quilt I gave her for Christmas. Yes, I used her fabric to make her a gift, without asking... In our family this is a good thing!
The alternate blocks are charcoal "Peppered Cotton" a beautiful chambray type fabric that adds texture and is wonderfully soft....
