This Sashed Tumbler is a UFO from 2013! I’m glad to be on my way to finishing it finally. I almost quilted freehand swirls on it but it’s for donation and I wanted it nice and cuddly so I wanted something a little less dense … I used the Steam pantograph – again! I like how it follows the lines of the quilt.

One thing I love about my quilt photos through the years is that I can tell where they were made from the photos. I’m feeling a little nostalgic for Big Canoe this summer – you can see from the photo of the finished top, this one was pieced there.

The binding on the Churn Dash was finished last night, this one quilted today, so all that’s left on my list to do before my trip Sunday is to start assembling the HourGlass blocks!


  1. What a great way to use scraps. Im saving this pattern for my donation quilts too. Thanks for the idea. Thats where my talent is lacking. lol

  2. I just received a 5″ Tumbler template today and I’m excited to use it! Your quilt is beautiful!

  3. I really like that design. It’s very clever to lay the tumblers horizontally and keep each row the same. A whole different pattern.

    • I saw something similar but way too fussy with the sashing between every row so I adapted it to suit my taste!


  4. Pretty quilt and I bet you are so happy you finished it after so many years. I have a couple of those but not quite as long in the need to finish pile. I am trying to work on those before starting anything new though. We’ll see how that works out…lol.
