Independence Day

A dear friend and I have been getting together for a sewing day here and there during my summer break. I have been on a Tumbler kick and thought this project was perfect for the Fourth of July.  Admittedly, we should have started a little sooner! They will, however, make a nice display for Labor Day and next year's patriotic celebrations.

Independence Day Quilt

Such a cute wall-hanging! It is made using four inch tumblers. You need to cut nine blue tumblers, twenty-six red tumblers and twenty-one white tumblers ( I used white-on-white prints).  I added a four inch border on all sides and used the border fabric for the backing as well.

This easy project worked up very quickly and looks awesome. I love it so much I didn't want to stop!!! 

I may have gotten a little carried away but I just had to see how this adorable flag looked using two inch tumblers! I cut the same number of each color tumbler as for the wall hanging project above. Of course since the tumblers are so much smaller, the flag is smaller too making a perfect pillow.

Thanks, Susan for fixing things so I can post pictures again.

Hmmmmm.....I wonder what this would look like with six inch tumblers. Or maybe nine inch.

Happy Quilting,
