I'll Tumble for ya'

No, this post is not about the eighties band Culture Club.  Ha ha. If you missed yesterday's post about a surprise for my mom you can read it HERE.   Last weekend I showed you the beginnings of a tumbler quilt.  This weekend, between all the other things I have to do, I plan to work on it some more. Last night (Friday) I cut out a stack of tumbler shapes (bottom of photo.)

The other part,  the part of a top I did last week top right,)  is already quilted and waiting for some friends to join it.  I also had some left over sections from last weekend (top left.)

Hopefully, I will have time to at least piece one more section of the top.  If I am really really lucky, I will get it layered and quilted.  Then I will join the pieces using the "Finish Almost Any Quilt" method.

How do you like that method of finishing? I looked up the book and might give it a try. Keep things from being too intimidating. I love your tumblers!
