Sweat Shop

My little sweat shop was open today! Being the only employee with 2 commissioned quilt orders, 2 babies born this month, one quilt already on the frame---aye, aye, aye....I sewed and quilted myself to exhaustion!

First quilt is in the flimsy stage-will be loaded on the frame in the morning! It is for my son-in-law's grandmother who's birthday is September 1st.

2 of the tumbler blocks were cut from Darkel's old navy uniform. I thought Grandma Johnson would like a little of him in this quilt!
All the material came from my stash--my favorite color is blue, and I had stashed quite a ton of it! I am glad to share it with another blues lover!


Also, this is quilted and ready for binding! It is an old UFO! I originally made it using the 10minute block pattern-made from a layer cake! Ended up not being a favorite pattern to make, but I am glad it's nearly finished and out of my sewing room!

Very fall looking quilt! I believe it will be a gift for my sister, Jana's in laws!





  1. visiting from sew many ways. Wow you look super busy.

  2. Your quilting plate is full! I want to make a tumbler quilt, so it was great to see yours. Visiting from sew Many Ways.

    1. One of the reasons that I picked this pattern is that I have the accuquilt with the tumbler die! It makes this SO easy-all the corners match up perfectly!

  3. Always loved the tumbler design and one day I might just get around to doing one as well. Love the colours and especially using old material thats full of memories is such a great idea.
