I don’t know if it’s even fair to say that I am working one this tumbler quilt. I started it months ago as my leader and ender project. Then it got pushed aside…
Then a few days ago when the power went out in the afternoon, I pulled it out and decided I wanted to get back at it and worked really hard to get it this far. Then after working on for a day or two, it’s on the back burner again….but at least it’s simmering on that back burner. Some other projects bumped it back to the lower priority status but I am at least back to sewing the tumbler blocks as leaders and enders. I’ve heard the saying “slow and steady wins the race”. I guess that’s where I am with the tumblers right now…slow and steady.
I want to add a little more spice to it. So far I have been sewing the blocks together in a light dark pattern. I want to throw in a few more odd balls in there. The pinks and the light greens I have been using sometimes as dark and something a light…I think that adds a little more interest. I cut tumblers and cut tumblers but I can tell I think I am going to need to cut more. I had NO IDEA it would take so many.
