Slow Sunday Stitching Finish


The "Tiny Tumble" quilt is finished!
It started out as a leader/ender project, but was so much fun to work on that I just couldn't leave it alone. I started and finished this little quilt within the same month... now that is a rare occurrence! 
It measures 8" x 8.5" and is made of 108 tumbler patches. My favourite patches are the 3 teal tigers that were fussy cut from a scrap of fabric.




There are so many seams in this quilt, with very little area for quilting without having to go through a lot of seams. So I just hand quilted right across the middle of each row.
This was such a fun project that I'm kind of sad that it's finished. Now that's crazy!



What are you hand stitching today?
I'll be making more appliqued seed blocks since the tiny tumble is done.
Link up your blog post below and share your project with us.

  18. That's funny Kathy! I started the 'leader/ender' project and managed to cut out and stitch together about 10 tumblers - that's as far as it got! I love the fabrics you chose and I think you're right: those little tigers are very cute!
