I ADORE Pinterest! It is the perfect place for me to hang out- recipes, craft ideas, decor projects and fun for the kids!!
While perusing good old Pinterest, I pinned several of these "Tumbler" quilts in hopes that one day I would give one a try.
A few months back, I gave it a try and made this Tumbler Table Runner. It still graces my dining room table and it makes my heart skip each time I see it.
I recently purchased a charm pack of orange, turquoise and yellow prints perfect for a little boy. I usually make things covered in roses and in pastel shades-- so this was a large departure for me.
And here it is! I didn't have enough 5"x 5" squares to make tumbler rows for the whole quilt top so I mixed in a few rows of some matching mini-prints.
The car and road sign prints are few and far between on the quilt top, but on the back......
...they aren't quite as subtle. : )
I like how this quilt or floor play-mat can be used with either side facing up. Both are colourful and eye-catching.
My boys are 4 and 8 now, so no need for this play-mat to stay around here. Luckily I have several (younger!) girlfriends who are destined to have babies in the next few months. I am sure a few of these bundles of joy will be of the "blue" kind and this quilt will find a new home soon.
Just a quick note - to say thank-you for all of your kind comments lately. Each and every one makes me smile.
I really love sharing my crafting, baking and decor exploits here- and to have such a captive audience makes it even more exciting!
Hugs to all,
