What are you most proud of? How nice the tumblers pieced together

What advice would you give someone starting this project? use a lot of different fabrics for a true scrappy vintage look

I just made one of these for a throw, but I washed it & it shrunk. I use 5" squares.....I luv it!!

I always wash my quilts, I love the way it shrinks around the stitches giving it that old fashioned look.

Beautiful quilt. How many 5" tumblers for the quilt? Is this queen size?

I used the 6" tumbler die, and I made this a few years ago so not sure how many blocks I used.

One of my UFO's is a tumbler. I'm using civil war fabrics. I agree with you, I love the old fashioned look after washing. Great job! I love it.
