Briar Rose Tumbler Quilt

I finally took pictures of our August /September window and the projects that were made for it.

I picked up a fat quarter bundle of Briar Rose at Quilt Market in the Spring and finished it in time for when our shipment arrived.

I used our giant die cutter and quickly turned out tumblers from the Briar Rose and some coordinating solids.

Tumbler blocks are so easy to put together. I needed it to be a bit wider so I added a thin light grey border and then a strawberry print border to the sides.

The headboard got a bit of decorating too. As some of you have heard,  I have a wee problem with doilies. As in I buy them whenever I see them and have boxes. I love when I can think of a new idea for them. I lightly hooped them in embroidery hoops. They can be taken out and used again when I take down the window.

I added a few faux apple branches with the hoops. I may have to recreate this in my own room.

I had a few leftover tumblers so I made a pillow. And of course a matching pillowcase.

Big thanks to Amy for quilting this lovely. She did a small all over loopy scribble.

We are waving goodbye to summer here (finally, it was a hot one). Goodbye peonies and forsythia.
And we are getting excited about our Fall/Halloween windows. Each of us has made a fun quilt and we are working on a few other showstoppers. Our Halloween window is my favorite window all year.

  1. Beautiful quilt and antique metal bed. So inviting! I've got some of that Briar Rose fabric and look forward to using it. I'm going to have to see if my LQS has a large tumbler die I could use too.

  2. I am loving seeing what people are doing with their Briar Rose stash. This quilt is so darling. Great job.
