I’ve been trying to decide on another leader/ender project but I am having a terrible time coming up with something! I would like something more long term than the quick projects I’ve done before. Bonnie Hunter does a Leader/ Ender challenge every year and this year has chosen the tumbler to work on. You can find out the details here.
I love tumbler quilts and I even have a die for my cutter which makes this idea even more appealing. The question is, what fabrics/theme do I want to go for? Daughter #1 bought most of these Downton Abbey charm packs for me for Christmas and I’m toying with using them for tumblers.
The two fabrics on the left were bits I found at SAS Fabrics when I was in Phoenix. I decided to place a tumbler cut with my die on top of a charm square to see how much fabric waste there would be.
There is definitely some waste there. When I use precuts, I try to use every sliver so this bothers me. But I haven’t come up with an idea I like better. This indecision means that I have gotten out these charm packs and put them away countless times!
By the time I make a decision, I probably could have a whole quilt pieced!
Honestly, I think part of my problem is that I hate to take apart these neat, little packages until I am sure how I want to use them. And yet, that is likely the only way to be sure. Clearly my OCD is getting the better of me and I am over thinking this.
