Whooping in Friday this week!

This has been a busy and productive week in our home... lots of Ebay selling happening with paper crafting products from my personal stash here... and some quilt making too! 

Today I want to share what I am most excited about :)  And it started with this...
Medium polka dot tone on tone white fabric and some fun bright red/white and blue/white charm packs I found on Ebay for a deal!  The template I got at my LQS when Jenny Doan visited... and I am making her Tumbler Flag Quilt from this vid tutorial :)

Her finished one looks like this...

Right now I have the middle pieced in vertical rows... per Jenny's instructions for easy completion and it is easy!  I started with the blue/white blocks...
Once I was happy with the layout I cut them into tumblers with the template.. assuring any chevrons with a directional print were going as the flag waves :)

Soon I had this all done!
By Thursday night I had gotten it to this point...

Today I will be busy with Ebay and ironing seams and sewing these vertical columns together :)
And now I have decided the borders... I wasn't too keen on the fabric I had planned for this and wanted weightier fun borders on this project... it will hang in my entry!

And I finally decided on a patriotic fabric with hibiscus flowers on it and a white thinner inner border too!  All from my stash!  WHOOP!

So hopefully I will have a flimsy to show off Sunday... if not before :)

I plan to miter the inner and outer borders and just have fun with this project... not sure of the backing yet but the binding most likely will be some red I added in from my stash also :)  And I have enough left over to make another flimsy!  WHOOP!

Hope you have a Friday to Whoop about too..

Have a blessed weekend!



  1. That border fabric is perfect ... it will tie everything together. I can't wait to see the finished top!

  2. Glad things are going well with online auctions. Love the red, white & blue fabrics. A patriotic wall quilt for sure.


Thanks for taking time to comment. Have a blessed day!
