Playtime

Even though I have tons of housework to do, I had to give my new toy a try (see previous post). I found some squares of donated fabric that I had in my stash, so I quickly (and I mean quickly) cut out these tumbler blocks for a small Project Linus quilt. They're just randomly arranged on the floor and not sewn together yet...I just wanted to see how it worked. Sorry about the bad lighting -- it was taken in my basement.

For those of you who saw yesterday's post and don't recognize what I bought, here's a link. In addition to the dies that come with the set, I bought the tumbler, circles, and rag square.

This is going to be fun!

Oh, what a thrilling tool! I've been wanting to make tumblers and haven't gotten round to it, I bet it would happen a lot faster if that cutter was nearby! I'm particularly keen to see what you do with circles, should be fun!

Looks like a lot of fun Anya!! Can't wait to see what other quilts you make with it. Care to be the tester and give us a review?? :^)

I don't know that you're going to be able to sew as fast as you cut now.

Who cares about men and their toys? We love the quilting toys! I'm so totally envious. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
