This has been a busy and productive week in our home… lots of Ebay selling happening with paper crafting products from my personal stash here… and some quilt making too!
Today I want to share what I am most excited about 🙂 And it started with this…
Medium polka dot tone on tone white fabric and some fun bright red/white and blue/white charm packs I found on Ebay for a deal! The template I got at my LQS when Jenny Doan visited… and I am making her Tumbler Flag Quilt from this vid tutorial 🙂
Her finished one looks like this…
Right now I have the middle pieced in vertical rows… per Jenny’s instructions for easy completion and it is easy! I started with the blue/white blocks…
Once I was happy with the layout I cut them into tumblers with the template.. assuring any chevrons with a directional print were going as the flag waves 🙂
Soon I had this all done!
By Thursday night I had gotten it to this point…
And I finally decided on a patriotic fabric with hibiscus flowers on it and a white thinner inner border too! All from my stash! WHOOP!
So hopefully I will have a flimsy to show off Sunday… if not before 🙂
I plan to miter the inner and outer borders and just have fun with this project… not sure of the backing yet but the binding most likely will be some red I added in from my stash also 🙂 And I have enough left over to make another flimsy! WHOOP!
Hope you have a Friday to Whoop about too..
