Tumbler Quilt for Quilts Beyond Borders

Here is the latest QBB finish.  I used some of the wonderful sample fabric I bought recently on ebay.  They are smallish pieces, but exactly perfect for tumblers.  The border fabric is one I bought at a local quilt shop several years ago.  I liked it but had never found the right use for it.  I think this was it!  I freehand quilted around the circles in the border fabric.

And how cute are those biker chicks?

This cute cat has a lot of attitude, too.

Speaking of attitude..... Yes, Chloe still has hers.  Got to love her! 

I did not get a great shot of the backing.  It's a Daisy Kingdom border print that, once again, I've had for years.  And it plays nicely with the other fabrics.

Mr. Muddling did a little painting on the backyard project yesterday. Still lots to do, but there's no hurry.  I'm enjoying it already and it's not nearly finished!

I have another dental appointment this afternoon.  After the root canal comes the crown.  Fun times. Not.

Hope your weekend was good and that you have started your week with plenty of fun things to do!

Hugs and kisses,

Another fab quilt Elaine! The tumbler pattern is one that I haven't made yet, but it's been on my to-do list for years. Good luck with your crown -- you're a Queen LOL!

Great quilt. Love the fun fabrics in the blocks and also the great border fabric. Good to see your outdoor area coming ahead and being used.
Good luck at the dentist!!!

Good luck with that crown ... my hubby is going to get a root canal next month ... his second this year. Ugh.

I love that tumbler quilt! Such pretty colors ... and I love the quilting on the border!

Another beautiful quilt. Hope your dental work goes well. I always hate having anything done too. Just the thought of going to dentists make me nauseated. lol. Hugs, Susie

Hope the dental work went smoothly.

I don't really think it would be nice to have a "like" button on blogs (although Wordpress does) but sometimes I go crazy! I was here. I read and though how cool the quilt was, I really liked the circles in the border and of course you know I wanted to comment on Chloe but all that left me. What happened? Well, I guess something or other… ha? Anyway, here I am now all rambling on. Bet you wish now there was just a little "like" button so I'd be quiet. :)
