Tumber Quilt is Almost Done!

I have my tumbler plaid quilt all pieced and back from the quilter! I even got the binding sewn on it tonight! Now just to stitch it down on the back. It is huge so I got as good of pictures as I could.

And look at the fun back I pieced! I just love how the back turned out! Another finish for 2010!

This is amazing. I clicked on the pic to enlarge, but can't see the detail...how is it quilted?

~Joan, who is sort of copying your spool quilt, but it's on point.

Ohh and Ahhh! This is something else! I love it and your back is simply amazing. Yep, amazing. Dig the entire quilt, friend. You are continually blowing us all away with your coolness. I dig that about you. Just one of many things...

I just love that quilt!!! You're giving me so many sources of inspiration. I really like the backed piece too. Plain backings are okay, but rather boring depending on the quilting. I love this backing.

very nice. a tumbler is on my "someday" list. I love how you pieced the back.

NorthernStar said...

gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. I love your balance of colours and tones on the front and the back is amazing! So unusual, it's a pity to keep it on the back

What an accomplishment - beautiful! Love the back - quilt bonus when the back is a surprise! Looks like the binding will take a bit of time.

This is one very impressive quilt. Well done! I'm equally impressed with the whimsical back. I love quilt backs with personality like this one has.

I'm loving those triangles...oh yes! This is a great quilt and the back....well, it could be another quilt top...great job!

Taryn said...

Two great quilts in one! Love the plaids (and that back).

Gayle said...

I almost think I like the back of your tumbler quilt better than the front! LOVE IT!

MARCIE said...

Oh my gosh, you had fun with that back! Both sides are wonderful!

Wendy said...

The back looks as good as the front. I love the plaids you used.

Narelle said...

Wow, the back is another quilt by itself!
How do you get the back to line up so straight?

Janet said...

wowee, I'm glad I didn't miss this one even if I am a bit slow. It's wonderful and I love the back just as much. Two for one.

Quilter Kathy said...
