Happy Monday!!  Another week starting and I have another one of my quilts almost finished.
 I think it's time to give it a name.  I've decided to call it 'A Terra Tumbler'.  (Aqua Terra fabric & tumbler block)  So very original don't you think.  ;o)
I now have all the scrappy borders sewn on and it doesn't matter how hard I try there always seems to be a few squares that should have been moved to another area.
But that's the nice thing about scrappy I think.  I can make all kids of mistakes and it still looks good.

Since I can't get a full picture of the quilt while it's on my design wall .....my dining room floor will suffice for now.    So far it measures about 70" x 80".
I could stop here and just call it good.....or..... I'm thinking about adding another small light blue border and then a larger border made with the same background fabric I put around the tumblers.   I think another 7" to 9" per side will bring it to the size I'd rather have.   I'm going to ponder awhile.

So since it's Monday and Judy's Design Wall has a bunch of beautiful quilts linked there you really should grab a cuppa and head on over.  Maybe I'll see you there.
Have a great day!!  
Thanks for stopping by....Linda

  4. Great looking tumbler quilt. Now I want to do one of those too!! That's the problem with checking out everyone's design wall -- too much eye candy and not enough time! Nice quilt.
