This Tumble quilt top is going to be a very scrappy old fashion looking small quilt top. I haven’t quite figured out size but I have gotten started. I tend to get kind of messy when working with the sewing machine ec. – how about you?
First things first – move the laptop out of the way and it usually gets balanced on top of the printer right now with the chilly weather we are having I get the cup warmer plugged in and get a cup of tea heated up – I tend to sip and right now with the chilly weather it seems like a cup of tea gets cold within 5 minutes!
Get a row stacked up and ready to sew – these are 5 inch tumblers – working with big pieces and nice and easy – fast!
For a little bit I have the beginnings of some rows laid out on the cutting table and the ironing board set up next to it. This did not last long – got too big! (yes I have Common Bride still on the wall in the sewing room – I will get back to it soon)
Pieces stacked up every where-what a mess!
Time to get up the portable design wall – now things are divided between the dining room and sewing room – I will get a little bit of steps in for exercise at least by walking back and forth these are all sewed into rows but the rows are not connected – I will have the rows grow some more and that is easier if they are not connected.
Stacks of tumblers now on the table – more room and close to the design wall. I had 40 – 10 inch squares, each cut into 4 pieces – 160 pieces to work with. I might mix in a couple more pieces here and there from the stash if I need to but I’m really not sure right now. I think next well be to stick all the pieces up on the wall and see what I have to work with -
I have a dentist appointment today so lets see what I can get done with before and after that. the Dizzy quilt is in the dryer – binding done, washing done – I will post a photo later today when it is done.
