I used a 5 inch square and made a template into a tumbler using a piece of card board... probably from the board they put into a fat quarter from Joann's? I figured I wanted a nice throw size - and think this will be about 72x72 with 20 tumblers per row and 16 rows. I used greens and creams from the stash wall. This was originally my 'hand work' project to take with me up to Vermont for a couple of weeks this summer. I actually did get a good amount done on it up there and it was a nice take with me to gymnastics with Emily for an hour. Little bits of time here and there do add up.
The first 8 rows are all stitched together by hand. The next 6 rows are into rows of 2. It takes me about an hour to stitch one row of 20 tumblers together by hand. So... just a few more hours to go in this quilt and it will be a top. Maybe this weekend? I see some nice relaxing slow stitching on this tonight and tomorrow for Slow Stitching Sunday.
Ollie and Peanut are making sure it doesn't move!
Linking up Saturday with the RSC Challenge and Sunday with the Slow Sunday Stitchers. Also with Oh Scrap on Sunday.
