Thimbleberry Tumbler

I seem to be on a roll with getting some UFO's finished this week.  I had cut out these Tumbler blocks using my GO cutter about a year ago and the fabrics are a collection of Thimbleberry fabrics I won at our guild's xmas party 2 years ago.  

I pulled out this bin of blocks last night and figured out a pattern.  I had won 16 half meters of each fabric and was able to cut 10 Tumbler blocks out of each piece  I then arranged them in a 12 by 12 block layout using up all the blocks.

I was surprised how fast this one came together and had it all pieced this morning.  I wasn't sure I liked the fabrics but once it was pieced it started to grow on me.  I think I'll quilt this one first after installing my Bliss upgrade as I just want to put a panto on it and that should get me adjusted to the new feel of my machine.

I am now down to 2 UFO's (my Presidents quilt and a Ragtime quilt), 1 Work in Progress (my Just Takes Two blocks) and have 4 tops to quilt (Giant Dahlia, Urban Abacus, Yellow and Brown Pinwheel, and this Tumbler).  Not a bad start for a quilter who never had UFO's a few years ago :)


  1. Hi Kath,

    I love that Go! tumbler. I also have the small tumbler and made a baby quilt for a friend. So fun and fast to piece. This one looks great, such a nice layout! Tomorrow is the day of BLISS! Yay!

  2. Oh, this makes me think of my cousin! She adored Thimbleberries over everything else, and thisis in exactly the kinds of colors she loved. I loved that someone of our generation adored them so much when it's not so popular with our crowd. :) You did a great job with them, Kathy.

  3. Good work on getting your UFOs down.

  4. Beautiful!!!!!!! I love tumblers!!!
