Texas Tumbler

image2

Sandy is making a fabulous top that she’s named Texas Tumbler using the Inklingo 2″ 60-degree diamond collection, the Inklingo 1″ 60-degree hexagon collection and the Inklingo 60-degree star point add-on 1.0/2.0 collection.

She writes:

“Texas Tumbler began because I wanted to use my fabric scraps. I have lots of little pieces here and there that are left from other projects and I have this need to use what I have – making do. I love the look of tumbling blocks so I started with Inklingo 2 inch Diamond Collection and made the Tumbling Blocks. I have a Canon MG5420 printer that I purchased on sale and it works wonderfully with custom sizes so I can print various diamonds on various pieces of scrap fabric. I printed on scraps and put like colors together – light, medium, dark – to make my tumbling blocks. After I’d hand pieced a number of them, I put them up on my design wall, stepped back, taking a good look and discovered I just didn’t like the look of it. For me they needed something.

I was already making Texas Stars from Inklingo Star Point Collection and Inklingo Hexagons, so I started combining the Texas Stars with the Tumbling Blocks in various combinations. I finally decided on a neutral Texas Star in between the Tumbling Blocks and came up with my Texas Tumbler. This quilt top is still in the design stage. What I have so far is the center. I will probably be adding something neutral all around…maybe more Texas Stars to allow for more focus on the Tumbling Blocks. I still have lots of neutral scraps of fabric…or I just may have to dip into my stash. I have lots of neutrals in my stash too.”

Texas Star Quilt

This blue and white lap quilt was made by Cathi. It is approximately 42 x 55.

Shapes used: 1″ and 2″ hexagons, star points and house half and other half 2″ hexagons, all from Collection #1

Each star was made using a 1″ hexagon for the centre and 6 of the star points. The stars were joined to one another using the 2″ hexagons. The edges of the quilt top were completed by using house half and other half 2″ hexagons.
