I wanted to make something easy for a baby quilt because one of my coworkers specifically asked if I would make a quilt for her little girl. My mom told me I should make a tumbler quilt but of course I was resistant because I thought it would be super hard. Turns out all I needed was two charm packs and a ruler she had to put this together in a matter of hours. I'm waiting for some fabric to come so I can add a border to make it a little larger but I think it is a sweet little quilt.
If you haven't checked out Missouri Star Quilt Company be sure to do so. They usually have a great deal of the day and you can get that and anything else you order for $5 shipping. It's a pretty good deal. The ruler is their design and it really does make minimal waste because it is designed to be used with precuts. Check out the tutorial here.
I am lacking a name for this quilt. The best I could think of was Blissful Tumbler and I'm not sure that will really give the expectant mom the warm wishes I am hoping for her. Your ideas are greatly appreciated.
