Tumbler Quilt Fin.!!!!

Happy dance!!!! Happy dance!!!!! After two years and eight months, I finally finished my tumbler quilt~~~~ I’m sooooo happy that it is done!!!!!!! I was going to take some photos with it outside but It’s raining and I couldn’t wait to share this with all of you so these photos will have to do….

Pattern: Something I made up myself
Fabric: Urban Chiks 1974
Size: 78” x 61”
Beginning Date: 09-19-2010
Completion Date: 05-15-2013

I used the 1974 Urban Chiks fabric for this quilt. I still remember how I fell in love with this line of fabric when I first laid my eyes on them, and I still love it!!! I also used the fabric from the same line for the backing, and I have to say it is equally as beautiful as the front~

I hand quilted the whole thing, which is why it took me so long. But I think the end result is totally worth the effort!!!!!

I remembered to add a quilt tag this time. The date on it was the day I finished all the hand quilting. I did not expect the binding would go missing for so long…. At least it tuned out at the end~

And who would have know this quilt will go so perfectly with my new guess bed!!!! I just put this bed together a few weeks ago. Don’t you think they are a perfect match?!
