Design Wall Monday...A Day Late

Yes, I know I'm late for Design Wall Monday. I'm blaming my tardiness on a NyQuil induced coma brought on by a horrible head cold. Last week Moda Bake Shop featured A Sweet Baby Quilt tumbler pattern that begins with charm squares. It was just the push I needed to try a tumbler quilt! I didn't have any charm packs on hand, but I did have a bunch of 5" scrappy squares which produced a lovely stack of various pink, blue and purple tumbler blocks. Once my head clears I will work at stitching them together instead of just playing with them on my design wall!

Be sure to stop by Patchwork Times to see what other quilters have on their design walls this week and add your latest project to the list too!

That is adorable and looks pretty easy too!! Nice job matching up colors and using scrap 5 in squares!

Good for you using something you already had. Looks good. Get better soon.

I'm sorry to hear you're suffering from a head cold. Those are no fun, but the Nyquil does help you rest so your body can heal. Hope you're feeling better soon. As for your quilt layout, I like your color selections. Can't wait to see the finished quilt.

Neat quilt, good way to use up fabrics that you have on hand! GET BETTER SOON! Our school is sharing lots of the headcold stuff...yuck I don't want it!

Get better quick so you can sew. I love that you used your scraps, tumblers are great.
