Its finally finished!
I started this tumbler quilt before Christmas and although it didn't take long at all to piece the top (all cut with the Accucut!), I had been dreading quilting it because I knew I would have difficulty on my domestic sewing machine. I ended up just stitching in the ditch and not doing any meandering. I love meandering so I felt a bit cheated but at least there are no puckers on the back. I cheated and sewed the binding down by machine instead of hand stitching it, as I have always done before. Fabrics are Heather Bailey's Fresh Cut line. Backing is Heather Bailey's Bijoux.
I have another pieced top to quilt and another being designed (in my head) then I will cut another tumbler quilt as I do like the look of them and they piece together very quickly.
I feel quite smug now, having finished this quilt this weekend!
