    Re: 5" Tumbler Quilt Top

    oh--I goofed...I had already sewed my rows together before I saw this post..now my choice is to undo a bit of each row to add another column of white border tumblers, or bite the bullet, lesson-learned, straighten the sides and add a regular border...

    What would you guys do? It is my first tumbler quilt for a baby girl... I want to make it special...

    I am so glad I found this before I cut off my edges of my first ever tumbler quilt!

    I never thought to use the tumbler template to make the border and then cut it off!

    I was following the video tutorial but I was sad to lose the extra pieces on the side...thank you so much for posting!

    I will now cut my solids tonight into tumbler shapes! So excited!

    Very lovely quilt! I'm in with jrchapman and watch out for the colorbleeding.

    Red would be really nice - but after my last fiasco of bleeding when I washed a quilt I'm a bit shy of it. Really any of the colors in your blocks would look great! Nice job - I need one of those tumblers!

    I think that if you pick out one of the blue florals for the backing that would be nice and then a red binding would look amazing with the front and make the flowers pop

    The quilt's beautiful so far x

    I think the red would really pop. Blue would be more subtle and leave the tumblers as the focus.

    debimalaga, I'm not sure on the quilting. I don't actually do my own quilting so I always defer to my quilter's ideas, she's great!

    I'd say red, blue, wheat (the tone in the quilt) or any of the quilt colors would be great. Nice job! Love the way you did the white border. Very snazzy looking quilt top. What are your quilting plans?

    Love it! Any of the colors in the tumblers would look great on the binding. Choose your favorite.

    Love it! Red would be a good choice. Just pick whatever color you want to pop out the most. Great job!
