Finish It Up Friday ~ Tumbler Triumph!

Wendy has provided me with the best name for this quilt! It caused plenty of trouble, but it’s finally done.

I love the border print. I’ve saved it a long time for just the right quilt.

I’ve been using what I have on hand and this backing is a new, organic cotton sheet from Target that I had sitting around for a long time.

I had a terrible time getting good photos. It was a beautiful day, but the light was too harsh for photos.

It was also plenty windy!

For now, I have it in my second guest room. It goes well with the Elongated Hexie quilt that I recently finished.

I’m thrilled that this one is done. It turned out a good twin size. Have a great day!

    Everything about this quilt is perfect, from the boarder fabric to the check binding. It works well in the room with the elongated hexie quilt.

  2. Lynn says:

    Very pretty, great green with the colours, lovely border and topped off with wonderful quilting.

    Although it was probably a pain in the ‘neck’ :), that extra column of 1/2 hexies made all the difference. It’s terrific & love the 2 quilts together. From fiercely windy, rainy Boston.

    Lovely guest room, full of quilts! I love this new quilt, so pretty.

  7. Jannette Binder says:

    Beautiful! I love that you added a border of the background fabric rather than cutting off the edges of the tumblers – it frames the quilt so well, and gives a bit of a break before the brightness of the outer border!

    You can see it is a wonderful finish with a perfect name!

  9. Patricia Ludwiczak says:

  13. Diane says:

    The fabric for the boarder is just perfect. For all the trouble, this turned out to be a terrific quilt. Sigh of relief.

  14. Val W says:

    You found the perfect border for this quilt. It really pulls it together and lifts it up. And your quilting is wonderful, of course!
