The Grinch Tumbler Quilt
Hi it’s Jenny from the Missouri Star Quilt Company.
I’m here with the Grinch. We have some great new fabric. The Grinch Stole Christmas Fabric. It showed up in this fat quarter bundle like this. And Natalie had an awesome idea with her Tumbler ruler to make this quilt. She loved the Kate Spain so she decided that Kate Spain could meet Dr. Seuss, and it would be a good marriage of fabrics and we would have fun with that.
So remember a fat quarter is 18”x 22”. So out of that we were able to get several of the 10” Tumbler cuts. And some of the small Tumbler cuts. We didn’t use any of the charm packs, we just used the layer cake and these fat quarters. And so out of the layer cake you can get one of the 10” Tumblers or you can get four of these. So it, you know, it was just a lot of fun matching and putting together.
So the way we did it was that we just started putting rows together. Now this is going to make a pretty big quilt because of all the fat quarters and the layer cakes. Here I want you to be able to see this really good here. Now what we did was we took and cut out layer cakes and Tumblers in the 10” size and in the 5” size. So we put two rows together of the tens and two rows of the fives (small Tumblers) and then two rows of the ten and two rows of the five. And we just continued and did that all the way down.
Now you need to know that this edge right here, the little Tumblers match up perfectly with the big Tumblers. So you don’t need to worry about any trimming, or any cutting, or any, you know, any adjusting. It just works out perfectly.
Anyway, we just thought this was such a fun, great idea. We love the combination of these two different fabrics, and I’m sure that Kate Spain would love to meet Dr. Seuss. Anyway, we hope you’ve enjoyed this quick Tumbler tutorial from the Missouri Star Quilt Company.
