    Lightbulb Accuquilt Tumbler outside the box idea

    I bought this die and did not want to make a lot of quilts the same so I imagined cups and saucers with the chintz style china fabric charm pack I had. I tried to make this look like it was in a built in china cabinet with wallpaper surround. The embellishments were some of my grandmothers. The ric rac was so old it was 100% cotton (they are now 100% polyester). I hope this stimulates you with a great idea of your own.

    Oh, that is wonderful. I have a paper pieced cup quilt I plan to make. Have the fabric purchased and just can't get motivated to start it. I really like yours a lot. Hmmm, may need to rethink my plan!
