Tumbling!

This week I've been playing with the Accuquilt Go Cutter. I must say that its amazing how quickly a quilt comes together when you use one! I started on Friday and finished on Tuesday, but could have got it finished a lot quicker if I'd had more time.

It was my first tumbler quilt and I love the result. I take no credit for choosing the fabrics- they were given to me for the purpose, but I can maybe take a little bit of credit for having made them work (the addition of extra stripes calmed the whole thing down as it was looking a bit too busy without them!)

In fact, I was so pleased with it that I cut out a few extra tumblers to make a quilt for Scallyway when he finally moves to a big bed. I've had the fabrics for Scallywag's quilt for a while and have been looking for the right way to use them- I reckon I've found it! I'll take some photos of Scallywag's quilt soon and show you!

Sorry for the dodgy phone photos. They were snapped very quickly at work before I handed the quilt over. I'll try and get some better photos sometime in the next few days.

I'm joining in over at 3 x Sunshine today.

  2. These colours are so great together, it's very spring-like, and its nice to see some vibrancy when we are heading into the drabness of winter.
