Teaching the Tumbler block

This past week I had the honor of teaching a young woman how to make her first quilt.  I used the Tumbler die cutter from Accucut and used blue, cream and red fabric.  She did a marvelous job.  I machine quilted it for her and she is now in the process of hand sewing the binding on.  I hope if you have a chance to share what you know with someone, that you will take the time to share.  It was a wonderful afternoon.  Next month - Pillowcases!

Tumbler Flag Quilt

The new year has been cold so far.  Of course, it is winter.  The quilting bug has got me again.  Started off with an easy pattern - Tumbler Flag Quilt.  I enjoyed using my Accuquilt tumbler die cut pattern to cut out the lap sized quilt.  While I was at it, I cut a second one out and taught a young lady in our town her first quilt lesson.  We enjoyed this afternoon and she did a great first time job.  Hopefully, she will continue learning and enjoying sewing.  I intend to give my quilt to one of our soldiers who will be leaving once again for Iraq.  I hope we can all keep our service men and women and their families in our prayers and thoughts.
