   I finished putting together Tumblers top on Friday and the backing this afternoon. As usual my husband and DSS both claimed the quilt. Tumblers is pretty but don't understand why because the pieces are placed without rhyme or reason and the border is...well, it just seemed right at the time! The backing is pieced strips.
  The one yard was bought to finish the flip flop border due to a cutting miscalculation on my part. This was the first yard that I truly bought in 2012 since the other yard was Ricky Tims' Caveman fabric won at QGA guild meeting.
   My 'Shop in the Stash' campaign is getting to be fun. I am not attempting a 'No buying' kick but having just one vehicle, living 35 miles from the nearest fabric shop, & having life get real busy makes shopping in my stash the best option. But our guild meetings have moved to within a mile of a LQS. I see fabric in my near future!
   Well, we are off to bowl at Fort Polk Sunday all day and since we are going in the car, it will be a non-quilting day. Good thing is I will bring 'My Sister' to my sister. It is a twisted sister design by Ami Simms from her twisted sister, me. LOL
Lator Gators! Keep making lemonade from Life's lemons.


  1. I am like you, I don't understand why these quilts that have random odd fabrics all tossed together look soo good when they are finished! I would NEVER put together some of my best scrap quilt finishes. But they look darn good together!

    Good numbers, even though you did buy that yard. LOL. Being near a quilt shop is never good, but that has never deterred me! I can shop online with the best of them! LOL>

    glen: good luck tomorrow! Knock 'em down! Stelly!

  2. Scrappy tumbler quilts are my favorite. There is just something special about a scrap quilt that everyone loves, they are just waiting for someone to cuddle up in them. Great use of using your stash and you numbers look great.

  3. I'm hoping to start an I Spy tumbler quilt for both of my sons soon. I can't wait! I love tumbler quilts!

    I can't believe you've only purchased 1 yard of fabric all year. Good for you!

  4. Great stashbusting, already more than 25 yards out and we've not hit the end of February yet!
