In spite of my grumpy feelings this week, or maybe because of them, I set back to work on the Tumbler project. I'd been getting somewhat bored with it. It is very repetitive even if the fabrics themselves are greatly variant. I put in about 13.5 hours on it over the last four days. The individual rows are now done with the exception of determining the ends, which I may remove one tumbler of each alternating row only to re-add it to the opposite end of the other alternating rows for a zig-zag edge. Make sense? Sure, ok.
As the design wall is not yet up in the in process, re-vamped craft room, I have once again taped a sampling of the rows as they currently are to my dining room wall. The sampling is of the first 11 rows I grabbed out of the 40+ rows I made, which is more than I actually need. I'll worry about the excess later. Even with the rather boring process of putting this together, it's still exciting to see a quilt begin to emerge. With scrappy quilts, it's also nice to see fabrics that I've used in other projects, as well as fabrics that maybe came from a friend or were just small pieces I picked up from a quilt shop or show outing.
Heading to Patchwork Times to see what all the other busy quilters have been up to, won't you join me? :)
