String Tumblers

As requested, brief instructions are posted at my MaryQuilts.com site for this tumbler quilt. While I did cut this one with my wonderful GO cutter, it can be made using a template.
I realized as I was trying to draw the string blocks in the EQ that a stripe fabric would work in place of the string pieced blocks too.

Today's picture is a little better and hopefully you can see how pretty the Blue Aqua fabric is -- I feel like it's my Summer vacation quilt esp. as we're heading for Florida on Saturday and I'm anticipating lots of beach time!

Thanks for the instructions, Mary! I love this quilt and using striped fabric would make it a really FAST quilt!

Have a wonderful time in Florida! I wish I was going too...summer in PA hasn't shown up yet and I'm getting a bit impatient!

Hi Mary, I'm saying "hello!" from Tokyo! I do love the vibrant, exciting, wake-me-up" colours in this lovely quilt!

Something about that porch railing...all quilts look wonderful hanging on it!

Have fun in Florida...pack lots of sunblock!

Have a great time and enjoy the beach. The tumbler quilt turned out great.

I looked at the GO cutter at MQX but can't justify it. I don't make enough of my own quilts :-(

Have a wonderful time in Florida. Are you going to visit Deb while you're there? Have a couple of adult beverages with umbrellas for me.

Your string tumbler looks great on the railing! I'm starting one, too. Have a wonderful vacation. You deserve some R&R.

Thank you Mary for the Tumbler Quilt instructions..another use for the scrappy strings that are piling up in my bin! Even better using fabrics with stripes already to go :>)!! Have a wonderful time in Florida! Like Susan said, PA is waiting for summer to be here on a daily basis...humidity and rain is what has been happening here!

Another GREAT pattern ~ thanks for sharing, Mary!

I mentioned your patterns in my blog post today ~ hoping to get a few more MBB quilts done before the end of the year (they count in the Heartstrings db, too).

Have a good time in FL!

I'm over on the East Coast and the weather is beautiful here as well! Hope you have a fantastic time and I really love the tumbler quilt. I might just have to try that! Thanks.
