    Default 5" tumbler pattern

    Hello Ladies! Thank you for introducing me to the 5" tumbler template (will be investing in the 10" soon!)
    My question is, how many 5" charm squares do you need to make a good-size lap quilt? Or can you direct me to so e patterns which may address this?

    Thank you in advance!

    Hi Amy,

    I have used one charm pack, bordered it with a solid charm pack and it turned out a nice size. I have it in my gallery but it wasn't bound yet. Take a look.

    5" tumbler pattern-jumbled-blockssml.jpgI used 2 charm packs..called bittersweet from our shop here at MSQC. The top in this picture is just laid out ready to be sewn. I added a 4 inch border all around And it is a perfect lap/ throw size.

    I would get 5 charm square packets and then it would be a great throw or a single bed size. Depending on how wide you do the border. Just an idea. Hugs, Jan L.

    Judy, roughly how big is your tumbler quilt going to be when done?
    Love the colors!
