Die-Cut Tumbler Blocks

A week ago Saturday when D#2 and I made up our minds as to what we were going to work on during our Sew Day,
our plans immediately changed when the mailman delivered my AccuQuilt Tumbler Die.

Out came my entire blue Scrap Stash.
It took us more time picking out the pieces that would fit the die than it did for us to cut.

We were able to cut the twenty blocks used in this tabletopper plus only a couple more before we used every blue scrap of the correct size.

While I manned the Bernina
Debbie handed over the blocks in the order of the lay-out on the design wall.
It took us no time at all to sew up this little top.

We had a short Sew Day and really accomplished something.

During the week when there was a free minute or two I added a border with a green flange,
quilted it a little.  Just enough  .. .. ..   ~quarter inch from either side of the seams.

Then used the Flower shapes cut using the die that came with the GO!
We cut these shapes from fabric that already had Wonder-Under -
so they were ready to be fused to our Tumbler Top.


 

That's about as far as it has come, so far.
Will be doing some machine stitching on the flowers, stems and petals.

Haven't decided about binding .

Hugs & ♥♥♥
