All Finished!! 30's Reproduction Tumbler Quilt



My happy little rainbow 30's reproduction tumbler quilt is complete!  Whew.... that was a mouth full!


I have to say, I went back and forth trying to decide which fabric to use for the binding.  Choosing fabric for the binding is my nemesis.  I thought solid soft yellow would keep it simple and accent the quilt nicely.
Ok I have to warn you, this post has a lot of pictures. Continue at your own risk!


Like my last tumbler quilt, I stitched a fourth of an inch above and below each horizontal seam and through the middle of each of the tumblers.



The backing turned out nicely.  The fabric is Lots of Dots by Karen Stephens.  I think this fabric is so sweet and fun and is a simple backing for this quilt. 



The finished size is 36" by 48".  It is the perfect size for a little one.  



I am really enjoying blogging and getting to know so many quilters.  I want to thank everyone for all the friendly and welcoming comments.  Everyone has been so nice and supportive!  



**Post Update - This quilt is now listed in my Etsy shop.  You can view the listing here:  30's Reproduction Rainbow Quilt.

Have a great day!

  4. Do you know how bad I want to make a tumbler quilt, now. I just love both of your latest ones.

    I vote no cursive, or a bigger cursive font. It's too hard for me to read the other comments, which I enjoy doing!

    1. Thank you! For the beach quilt I used the tumbler template with the Accuquilt Go Baby. For the 30's Reproduction, I just used a template that I have had for a long time. I found it in some of my files when I was going through them. There are many templates online as well.

  13. Oh that turned out so pretty! Love the colors. I wish I wasn't such a foul weather quilter. I just have a hard time sitting still with it unless the weather is bad (usually cold). Yours really tempts me to try it in fair weather too.

  23. This is truly one of the prettiest little quilts I've ever seen using 30's repros. I just love it! I love using repro's but I have never done the "rainbow" effect in a quilt - you've inspired me!
