    Ode to Natalie Dawn's Tumbler Block Template

    My nephew is graduating from college and majored in something like: Historic Preservation... so I thought a tumbler quilt with reproduction fabrics would be perfect for him.

    I used the Natalie Dawn 5" tumbler block template... and it worked like a dream! I forsee more tumbler block quilts in my future because they are SOOOO easy... other than "I think I need a dark block next"... it was just sew, sew, sew...

    The flimsy is "aging" on my "design wall" so I can attend to things I neglected while sewing. The first photo was taken outside (natural light) and the second on the "design wall" inside...




    You know you've had too much coffee when you can thread a sewing machine while it's running.

          Beautiful! The tumbler template is my favorite! I have two cut out and ready to sew.

            I really need to pull out my template, wipe the dust off and get to cutting....so many patterns, so little time!!

            What a fantastic job on your nephew's quilt...I know he will appreciate it very much!!

                Beautiful! Can't wait to see it quilted, it will be even more gorgeous!
                I have the template and love the easy way it cuts and little waste when you use a charm pack.

                  Lovely. I have that template. I can't wait to use it. How many charm packs did you use to make a quilt that size?

                        Love it. Looks like a quilt this I bought many years ago at an auction. Love the fabric.

                            This is beautiful! I bought some charm packs from the daily deal a while back and then picked up the template a few days later. Thanks for the reminder!

                              Have the template...haven't used it yet! Looks fun So many projects, so little time.
                              To quilt or not to quilt?.....what a ridiculous question!
