More Tumbler Progress

I was in a real dilemma about how to proceed with this monstrous tumbler top. I finally decided a wack a strip off one side.

That left me with a top 100 inches square. That’s plenty big, but it just wanted a border.

So it got one. Just 4 1/2 inches, but now it feels right. I have this piece for backing, but of course, it isn’t wide enough. I’ll try to remedy that while I wait for the batting I ordered.

I never have 120 inch batting on hand, but I should probably start thinking about it.

Have a great day!
