Earlier this year, Quilt Now sent me a few fat quarters from the 'Pitter Patter' collection by Michael Miller, and asked me to come up with something for their March issue.
I decided on a tumbler quilt, mainly because I could whizz the fabrics quick smart through my Sizzix (don't worry, templates are provided by the magazine)! But also because the tumbler shape would lend itself nicely to these cute directional prints.
If using directional prints like me, you will need to alternate the direction of your prints when cutting out the tumbler shapes. As you can see, they get stacked top to toe!
