Tumbler and Hexies...

The sewing machine has been running hot these last few days and here she is...the Tumbler quilt is finished!
The quilt is quite big, measuring 76" x 52"...I just machine cross-hatch quilted her...why am I calling the quilt a "HER"...anyway I love her!
I did not straighten the sides, I left the tumblers whole, and bound her in the zig-zag shape of the tumblers... She will be much loved and used, by me!
Update on my Hexie bag...coming along nicely, just need to add the rings to take the cord and it will be done....

This hexie bag is one I won in a Secret Santa gift a couple of years ago...dear friend Lurline made this one and I love it, it's great to take small projects to gatherings. here you can see where the rings go for the cord to thread through..
Must rush off...Tuesday patchwork today and as usual I'm trying to do too much before I go..
Have a great day....♥

  8. Your lovely tumbler quilt looks like "she" will be much loved and much used.

    Looking at the hexie bag made by Lurline makes me curious about the header photo at the top of your blog. Is that a photo from your home? The brocade covered, bead-and-flower decorated box looks like a hexie bag with a hexie lid. Is it a hexagon jewelry box that you made?
