A handsome baby boy tumbler quilt for a friend of my husband. I used two packages of "Pinewood Acres" by Penny Rose for Riley Blake Designs, and cordinates for the two borders. I found a matching flannel at a local quilt shop for the back. I also used Missouri Stars 5" tumbler template to cut the tumbler blocks. Getting the blocks to align properly when sewing them together is a little frustrating, there is another template out there that has a little notch in the bottom corner to help align the tumblers, that might work better. I echoed stitched about half an inch away from all seams. I just love how this quilt turned out and I found a matching bear stuff animal!
I had made a table runner using pieces of this jelly roll, but I didn't like it, so I used some more pieces of it and made this one in Nov 2019. This was while I still lived in Gainesville FL. So - I got caught up in the move and this project took a back seat. I finished quilting it Mar 30 2021 and did the binding today (Mar 31 2021). Now I have to mail it back to Gainesville as it is a gift!
A sweet friend, Shelly, donated fabrics and the pattern for these two quilts. She had cut out the fabric for the flowers quilt and it went together quickly. The fish fabric was just too cute to cut up so I decided to use the same pattern. The First Heartbeat pattern is by Terri Vanden Bosh. Hope a child likes them.
This is my first wholecloth mini quilt and my 14th mini quilt for my personal "I Walked the Line Walking-Foot Challenge". I used Melissa Marginet's "Edge-to-Edge Walking Foot Quilting Designs" book to learn how to set up the "grids" for this pattern. Fabrics used: "Shadow Play" by Maywood Studio for the background; Kona Solids Black for the binding; and Cotton Painters Canvas/tarp for the backing;
