GO! 3 1/2" Tumbler
This summer I found time to play with my GO cutter and tried the 3 1/2" Tumbler die. I had some batik fabrics left over from another project and cut it all up using the die. I was lucky and had some matching teal hand dyed fabric in my stash to use for the borders. I had enough blocks to make a table runner and one place-mat. Our guild donates placemats to the local Meals on Wheels in December so it is a great way to use up scraps and to show our appreciation to our seniors in the community.
Yesterday I quilted it using Lava Superior Thread, a new thread to me, and I am so please with how this thread quilts and looks. It is 35wt variegated poly thread. I bought 27 cones from a friend on a longarm chat site and I am now realizing what a steal of a deal I got as now I know I'm going to use this thread a lot. I have already tried it on two client quilts this month and am just loving the results (those pictures coming soon!)
