Piecing the Quilt:

  1. Using the quilt photo as a guide, arrange the Tumblers in rows, 5 across by 7 down.
  2. Sew 5 Tumblers in a row. Press the seams open. This will reduce the bulk at the seam lines when sewing the rows together. Repeat to make 6 more rows.
  3. Sew the 7 rows together to form the quilt top. 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.
  4. Square off the quilt by cutting away from the outside edges.


  1. Layer the backing, batting and quilt top. Quilt by hand or machine, as desired.
  2. Sew binding strips together to form one long strip. Fold wrong sides together, lengthwise, and press.
  3. With a 1/4" seam, 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.
