Large Tumbler Quilt

Assembling the Tumbler Center:

  1. Take four of the PWPG002 Silver and four of the PWPG005 Stones Tumblers and cut them in half. See Diagram 2.
  2. Using the quilt photo as a guide, arrange the Tumblers in rows. Each row will start and end with a half Tumbler.
  3. Sew each of the six rows together and press the seams open. This will reduce the bulk at the seam lines when sewing the rows together.
  4. Sew the rows together. Make sure the rows are in the correct order and are not turned upside down. It is easiest to do this by laying out all the rows on a design wall or the floor, then carefully picking up the rows and sewing them together. Press.
  5. Trim off the half Tumbler blocks to 1/4" from the point where the two color greens or two color blues meet. See Diagram 3.

Adding the Borders:

  1. Sew the five 1 1/2" x WOF of PWPG009 together into one long strip. Press.
  2. Cut into four 1 1/2" x 47 1/2" pieces.
  3. Sew two of the 1 1/2" to each of the long sides of the quilt. Press.
  4. Sew the remaining 1 1/2" strips to the top and bottom of the quilt. Press.
  5. Cut two of the 3 1/2" x LOF strips to 49 1/2" long. Sew these to the long sides of the quilt. Press.
  6. Cut the remaining two 3 1/2" x LOF to 53 1/2". Sew these to the top and bottom of the quilt. Press.


  1. Sew the two 1 5/8 yd pieces of the backing fabric together along the selvedge edge to make the backing.
  2. Layer the backing, batting and quilt top. Quilt by hand or machine, as desired.
  3. Sew the binding strips together to form one long strip. Fold the binding in half, lengthwise, with wrong sides together and press.
  4. Sew the raw edges of the binding to the edges of the right side of the quilt. Turn the folded edge of the binding to the back side of the quilt and stitch in place by hand, mitering the corners.
