Working on a Tumbler Quilt for Fall!

In my endeavor to use fabrics from my stash, I thought it would be a good idea to find all my fall fabrics and make a Tumbler Quilt from them. I ironed and cut out many many tumblers.  Some fabrics are better quality than others, but they are all going in and being used. I love the way the colors mix. I really enjoy stitching tumblers to.
Here is the stack of tumblers neatly cut out and stacked.  I am using a 5" tumbler template.  I cut 5" strips of fabric which I stacked and sub-cut into tumbler shapes.  Next comes sewing those tumblers into rows.  I tackle them by chain piecing them.  I sew groups of two together, then groups of four together etc, etc.  Got seven rows put together and I am loving how it looks.


  1. I can't wait until the trees resemble your lovely quilt!! Love the purples tossed in too!

  2. Love it. The fabric is perfect for fall. Very nice.
