Finish It Up Friday

I finished the binding and took a few photos  of this tiny tumbler quilt just before getting on the plane last week. I love how it turned out!

Since I had the big 30s Carpenter Star quilt loaded on the frame, I quilted this on my domestic machine. Boy, am I out of practice! 

A sweet friend cut these tumblers from her stash and sent them to me. She also sent me this lovely print that I used for the border!  I am keeping this little quilt.

Here is a shot at the back.

Looking forward to another lovely day here in Arizona! My time here is flying by all too fast. Happy Friday, everyone!

Linking up with Richard and Tanya QuiltsConfessions of a Fabric Addict, and Crazy Mom Quilts.

    A friend of mine gifted me the template and pattern for this quilt. I have been furiously cutting little tumblers from my reproduction prints. Phew! Time consuming. After seeing yours, though, I had better get going. I love it!

    Great finish, I love your quilting cause even out of practice you’re far more talented at FMQ than I! How big is this quilt, it looked to be a pretty good size until you referred to it as little and then looking at the backing fabric unless that’s a giant print this is a little guy huh?

    What a great finish. Amazing how it started out with small tumblers, and now a wonderful finish.

    You did a great job machine quilting this little quilt. I’m sure it tired your arms rather quickly while doing it. It’s very adorable. The red binding really pops! Enjoy every minute in AZ.
