Tumbler Quilt

I finished up what I'm calling my Tumbler quilt this weekend.  I used Amanda Jean's pattern (or "recipe") at Moda Bake Shop.  This is a great pattern, easy to piece, fun to put together, and it was fun to quilt, too.  I originally had planned on doing straight line quilting, but then changed my mind and tried wavy line quilting.  I love it!


Most of the time I don't have the energy left to make a pieced back for my quilts, I usually just get lazy and use one fabric, maybe two, or a sheet that I found on clearance somewhere.  But this time I decided to throw some coordinating fabric together and I love how it came together.  It's so much more interesting than a plain back!

Mode Bake Shop is having a monthly contest in March for quilts made using charm packs, so this one is perfect to enter!  I used 4 charm packs from Moda's Wee Woodland line, plus a few pieces from my stash to make the quilt just a bit bigger.

  1. So beautiful! My friend and I were just admiring these fabrics! You did a great job, I hope you win!

  2. I am the friend and that looks amazing!

  3. That looks fantastic! I love the back too. I usually get too impatient to do a pieced back but I'm always glad when I do. That looks great.

  4. I like the quilting! The back of it is as fantastic as the front.

  5. that looks so great! I've had a tumbler quilt in mind for some time now, perhaps I'll move it up the line! Love those fabrics!!

  6. Love this quilt, something I definitely want to try! Your fabrics work really well. The back is just gorgeous, normally I'm too lazy to piece a back but looking at yours it's definitely worth the effort!

  7. Great quilt! Isn't that wavy line quilting just the best?!? Thanks for linking up to {Sew} Modern Monday!
