templates from Making A Lather

I am a tool person and so is my husband, so he would let me buy anything that was a tool. He is a machine repairman, and he knows that the right tool can make a huge difference. I made my first quilt with a homemade cardboard template. We have come a long way since then.

I did a quick check on the template inspired quilts I am piecing. I have taken the double wedding ring out of the box again and I have several of these parts I need to make.

New project: a Tumbler quilt from Carried Away Quilting


I’ve wanted to make a Tumbler quilt for some time. If you’re unfamiliar with that name, a tumbler quilt is made up of blocks that resemble a drinking glass. It’s a classic quilt layout that can take on a traditional or contemporary feeling depending on the fabrics selected. It’s also a terrific quilt pattern for busting your stash, which is exactly what I did this weekend. I pulled some of my favorite Moda leftovers and began cutting tumblers. Aren’t they cute?


I’m sure there are many patterns and templates available for sewing a Tumbler ...
