    Default Tumbler pattern Lap quilt.

    I loved the Mirabella fabrics Jenny used for the Tumbler table runner and ordered some charm packs. It started as a table runner,a present for my mum. I soon realized I was not sure of her table length and that she would make more use of a Lap quilt. So I kept adding rows and rows. Finished at 50x50" including border. Also thanks to SUNNY580 's recent post about Flange binding I tried it and love how it worked.
    Love MSQ and the ideas it gives me-I am new to quilting and love all the tutorials and lovely sets of coordinating precuts. (all my non quilting friends are so impressed with my color choices!! )Click image for larger version.

    It's Beautiful! I was making a baby quilt with tumblers but it's so busy with them next to each other. Can I steal your idea

    Thank you . It is the Table runner pattern in the 1st Block magazine I think. The solid white breaks it up nice. I did not have template so used the angle on my edge of a dresden template I had,to make best use of the Charm size. Lining up in my case the 7" line on base at edge and 2" line on top and cut that angle. Seems to have worked ok.

    I love this. I have the Mirabella in layer cake and charm packs and have been agonizing over what pattern to use to best showcase the pretty colors, I think your pattern may become my pattern.
    Since you're always on my mind can you straighten out the mess up there?

    Love the layout and the colors! I'll have to keep this idea in mind for my tumbler template.
