Let’s get ready to Crumble!

National Sewing Month 2013
Well.  This is a little scary.  I have this bad habit of jumping into things without thinking it all the way through – as in, what happens if I have a problem and can’t figure out how your blog works in time to do this?  It’s not like I’m going to figure that part out ahead of time… nope, last minute works fine for me!  I’m that kind of girl.

Hi. I’m Carrie.  I’m the two-legged, non-canine part of Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co.

If you don’t already know, this is Rosie.  I’m sure she wishes I would call her Miss Rosie but she’s Rosie, Rosebud, Rosie-patosie and GoofyGirl.  Especially the latter.

I didn’t have to prompt her to get this picture – in fact, she wasn’t supposed to be in any pictures.  But we were outside and my attention was on the quilt.  You can figure out the rest.

That quilt is a good place to start – it’s a tumbler quilt.  Also known as a “thimble”.  I call them Crumblers.  I didn’t start off calling them that, a sweet friend did.  C for Carrie, R for Rosie and the rest from tumbler.  I wasn’t sure about the name but when she told me that she’d be calling them “Crumblers” until the day she died, I realized the name had stuck with me too.  It was seriously silly and that’s probably why I liked it.  Life’s too short to not have some fun, especially when it comes to making quilts.

But back to the templates – these are them:

(Pssst… This is the prize.  This is what you’re going to win.  One of each.)
The story behind them is pretty simple – I wanted to make a tumbler quilt and I couldn’t find a template that did what I wanted it to do.  I could find them in one size… but I like having options.  I could find pre-cut tumblers – love those! – but again, there were limitations of size and fabric.  So I pestered a friend who’s a genius at creating amazing rulers – you met her the other day, Monique Dillard of Open Gate Quilts – and a few months later, I was “crumbling”.  
(If you haven’t already entered to win this ruler – do it!  Now!  I’ll wait while you do that because you need it.  I love the Fit to be Quarter ruler.  And the Fit to be Geese.)  
The Crumbler measures 5 1/2″ from top-to-bottom and will cut tumblers from strips measuring 3″, 3 1/2″, 4″, 4 1/2″, 5″ and 5 1/2″.  The Lil’ Crumbler measures 4″ and will cut tumblers from strips measuring between 1 1/2″ and 4″ at 1/4″ increments.  Both templates are marked with seam lines for fussy-cutting, and both templates have a center line for cutting side-pieces, cutting “split-tumblers”, and lining up stripes.
If you’ve never made a tumbler quilt, they’re easy.  The hardest part is picking a size.  
Cut strips to your desired width.
Having the seam allowance marked makes it easy to keep the selvage out of the finished template.
Flip the template back and forth to continue cutting tumblers from the strip.  Cut a whole lot of tumblers.  (Then remember to clean your cutting mat before taking pictures.)
Just so you know, you don’t always have to cut the tumblers at the top or bottom of the template.  Different fabrics and projects might call for something wider, chunkier or narrower.  I did mention that I like having options.
Piecing.  That’s easy too.  There is only one thing to know and that’s where to line them up.  This isn’t it.    

That little arrow at the top – the two corners should not line up.  If the two tumblers are sewn together like this, they won’t make a straight, even row.  
The two tumblers are off-set just a little bit – the wide “v” should fall right on the spot of a perfect scant 1/4″ seam allowance.  There will be the same off-set at the bottom of the seam.

  
Press the seam – open or to one side.  The top and bottom edges of the pieced tumblers should be straight.  How easy is that?  
I’m sorry about the matching tumblers but this was all that was left after making this…
About thirty different cream and ivory prints from Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Quilts – I’ve been hoarding saving them for a project like this.  The strips were cut at 4 1/2″ so I could get two strips from a fat-eighth – the tumblers finish at 4″ tall.  A leisurely weekend of sewing and I made a quilt measuring about 64″ x 72″.  
If you’re worried about matching up angles and seams, a quilt like this is incredibly simple to piece.  Pressing the seams to one side means that the tumblers nestle into each other when the rows are joined.  Look Ma!  No pins!  Though I do like to press the seams joining rows open.
The Crumbler Instructions include all the information about cutting, lining up the tumblers for stitching, pressing, etc., mentioned here.  While the instructions don’t really have specific patterns, I have included all sorts of numbers of how many tumblers can be cut from different size strips.  If you want to make a quilt { { t h i s  b i g } }… everything you need to know to calculate how many tumblers you’ll need of different sizes is there.  Do you have a couple of Jelly Rolls you don’t know what to do with?  Covered.  A Layer Cake.  It’s in there.  Since I had ideas for options, I shared. 
Like mixing sizes – widths – of tumblers…
These were cut at 5 1/2″ and finish at 5″ tall.  The print tumblers were cut full-size and the background tumblers were cut 1″ narrower.  A strip of masking tape on the under-side of the template.  Presto!
These were also cut at 5 1/2″ to finish at 5″.  Shirtings and Reproduction prints.  And no, there isn’t a single repeated print in this one.  I wish you could see this one in person – it’s much yummier than the picture shows.
I know I’m not the only quilter with bits and pieces of leftover 1 1/2″ strips… I made a couple of these for Christmas presents last year.  Instead of quilting it, I “aged” it a bit by washing, crumpling and ironing it dry, then I framed it in an 11″ x 14″ frame.  (I took the glass out for the picture.)
These finish at 1″ high by about 7/8″ wide at the base.  They’re easier to piece than you’d think… but be warned, I found making these to be highly addictive.  
Do you have any Moda Candy?  You know, those adorable little mini-charm packs!  I used two Scrumptious mini-charm packs, three (3) print fat quarters – one for the base and two for the lining – and about 1/2 yard of Bella No. 97 to make this…
I was hoping to get the handles stitched on – they’re best done by hand – before I took a picture but… see above.  I’m a last-minute kind of girl.  Exhibit A – I finished this at 2:30 am.  Monday.  
You’re going to have to be a little last-minute too… you have until Midnight on September 30th to enter to win a couple of Crumbler templates.  
I am going to give away a set of Crumblers – one of each – to one lucky winner.  To enter, please leave a comment telling me if you’ve ever made a tumbler quilt.  Then tell me which Moda collection you would use to make one if when you win the Crumblers!
All winners will be randomly selected and announced on Moda… The Cutting Table blog on October 2nd.  That’s here – in a week!    
So hurry up and leave a comment!
And then make sure to come back tomorrow and Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday for more opportunities to win a nifty tool that you never knew you always needed until you saw it here.  
Toodles!

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt, but I love the look. I bet this would look amazing made from Barcelona.

  2. Sabrina says:

    I’ve never used the tumbler template/pattern. I think the first time will be a pillow with Flirt.

  3. Donna says:

    I think Vin du Jour by 3 Sisters for Moda would make a lovely tumbler quilt.

  4. Susan Smith says:

    Hi Carrie,
    I’ve made a tumbler table runner–it went together so well I’m LOVING that shirtings/reproduction low-volume quilt! It is gorgeous! If I win this giveaway, I’ll make a bag just like the one in your picture….are you going to kit it (hint, hint?)

  5. Taryn says:

    I’ve been looking at those tumbler templates and would love to have a go at them with some Scrumptious. 🙂

  6. JoAnne says:

    What an absolutely adorable picture of Rosie! She is smiling so nice for the camera. I love the bag! I scored some of those cute, dotted handles last week and I may seriously make this bag today!

  7. Karen says:

    Hi Carrie! Love the picture of Rosie! I’ve never made a tumbler but would love to use the Crumbler to do so! I’m a Blackbird Design or French General girl… So Josephine or Field Notes would tickle my fancy for this great new Crumbler! Cheers! Karen

  8. Lisa Marie says:

    I haven’t made a tumbler quilt but I think I should give it a try! Choosing fabric would be the hard part. Right now I’m loving Wrens & Friends, Chirp Chirp, and S’more Love so I’d probably start with one of those lines.

  9. I have not yet made a tumbler quilt – it is that slight off-lining up trick that I didn’t know but now do so it doesn’t seem so scary!!!

  10. I would make the miniature. It is so cute. I have started cutting a 3″ tumbler out, but have not sewed a stitch on it yet. The Crumbler would make it so much easier. Thanks

  11. I haven’t made a tumbler yet…but I’d like to!!

  12. I’ve never made a tumbler but I’d love to out of the Half Moon Modern zig zags!

  13. Karen says:

    I haven’t made a crumbler quilt yet, but I’d love to. I love all things scrappy! I would make my quilt out of Moda’s new line called Piecemakers to use to decorate my sewng room.

  14. llavmc says:

    I have never made a tumbler but am ready to learn. I have some vintage modern mini charm squares and would love to make that bag. Where did you get those fabulous red polka dot bag handles? Love them!

  15. Elin says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler or crumbler quilt but would really like to make one from moda line called Flats

  16. I have never made a tumbler quilt, but it sure looks like fun (and easy with your ruler!) I would make a quilt out of Moda’s Wrens & Friends new line due in October for my mom since she is a bird lover.

  17. Kay says:

    I haven’t made one yet but it is on my ‘must do’ list. I would like to make a Christmas one in Aspen frost. Thanks for a sweet giveaway and particularly the tip for the seams.

  18. bobbie23nc says:

    I have made a tumbler baby quilt but I prefer variety too so I know I need your rulers. I would love a new quilt with Midwinter Reds.

  19. Colleen says:

    I have made a tumbler quilt with an assortment of my Civil War reproduction fabrics and have a very large tumbler cut from scraps my daughter picked waiting to piece for her. Love your crumblers! When I win I will make one using an assortment of Fig Tree fabrics I too have been hoarding! I love the one you posted and that has inspired me.

  20. Deb says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt. I wasn’t sure how easy it would be to sew together. I think they look so GREAT and now you have given me confidence that I can do this! Especially if I have these terrific rulers!! I really want to make a flannel quilt so that is what I would use. Thanks for the chance to win!

  21. KatheG says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt but it’s been on my ‘bucket’ list. I think I would like to use the ‘Coastal’ fabric.
    Thanks for showing how it’s done.

  22. Laura Fedewa says:

    Love the bag! I am a sucker for Scrumptious right now too 🙂 The tumbler quilt is on my to do list so these tools would be perfect!

  23. Missy Shay says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt, but a friend made one at the quilt retreat last weekend! I really like Scrumptious and might use that although I really liked that neutrals quilts also!
    missysaprons@gmail.com

  24. Monica says:

    I have actually made a few tumbler quilts. And I want to make more! I’d love to do one with Lush Uptown. Wouldn’t that be fabulous?!

  25. What awesome rulers! I was just looking into buying some tumbler english paper piecing templates. This may be an easier way to make a tumbler quilt. I will definately make one if I win these!

  26. Bonnie says:

    I have never made a tumbler (crumbler) quilt before and would love to try. I have some charm packs in Noteworthy that would look great in a bag so that will be my first project! Thanks for the chance to win!

  27. pdudgeon says:

    I’ve made a tumbler quilt with indigo and tan fabrics. When i took it to my local quilt shop for quilting, one of the local instructors grabbed it up and ran over to her beginning quilting class to show it off. Needless to say it was a huge hit!
    i would love to win your tumblers, and would use some jelly rolls from Minick & Simpson for my quilt.

  28. tpott says:

    I love batiks. I would choose Paint Box Batiks by Laundry Basket Quilts. Give Rosie a pet for me, I also call my “Sandy” (the queen) Goofy Girl, among other names. ;-> Toni Anne

  29. Alicia says:

    Pick me! Pick me! Would love to have these templates now that you’ve described their versatility! Yes, I’ve made a tumbler quilt. It wasn’t even finished when I brought it in from the car and the man bought it on sight! It WAS pretty in scraps!

  30. andsewon says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt. I have some Glace here by 3 Sisters that maybe would look sweet in ‘crumblers’!
    I love my Fit to be Quarter rule! Would love to try a quilt with your Crumbler rules!
    Lola

  31. b says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt, but I’d love to!!! I would use some of Laundry Basket Quilts fabric (I have one of those mini charm packs of Edyta’s new Hope Chest) and of course I have plenty of fabric in my stash! 🙂

    b.

  32. love that tiny crumbler in the 1800’s reproductions, absolutely charming.

  33. quiltmania says:

    I haven’t made a tumbler quilt YET! Your rulers look like the perfect tool to rectify that. If I win the crumbles I would use my Kate Spain Sunnyside fat eights to make a funky quilt. Thanks for the giveaway!

  34. I made two tumbler couch pillows for my mom out of Fig Tree California Girl and they are so pretty (if I do say so myself). I’d love to make a Crumbler quilt for me, out of Honeysweet – I love Fig Tree. Thanks for the chance to win.

  35. DebrafromMD says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt. I have a HoneySweet jelly roll that I would use to make a quilt if I’m lucky enough to win.

  36. Becky S. says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt, but would love to try one. I love your low volume quilt and that tote bag is ADORABLE!!! I would make my tumbler quilt with Scrumptious or Midwinter Reds. Thanks for the chance to win.

  37. Sheri Penner says:

    I started cutting out tumblers from the fabric I used in projects. I made my own plastic template and I’m sure the edges have been widdled down over the years. Its be awesome to have a “real” template to use!

  38. Barb says:

    What fun -have never made one but can see a fun scrap quilt as a result….

  39. Laurel says:

    I’ve never made a “crumbler” but I would love to try. If I win, perhaps I could buy Fig Tree’s Honeysweet which will soon be out to make my quilt.

  40. Amber says:

    I’d love to make a tumbler quilt using these great templates. Then I’d let Rosie lay on it any time she wanted! 🙂 I especially love the bag (and the handles by it!)

  41. I’ve never made a tumbler quilt but have want to ever since you came out with this and I heard about in on another blog after she named it! I too love your bag. Would love to use Scrumptious for a Crumbler quilt.

  42. Karen says:

    I have yet to make a crumbler quilt or tumbler, but every time I see one I want to. That bag is too die for, absolutely adorable. I think I would make my quilt or even that bag out of Scrumptious. Love those bright, cheery colors. I even have the bag pattern if that is the one from the most recent magazine. Having said that, I adore your quilt out of the Fig Tree fabric, perfect! Too many choices!

  43. Marissa says:

    I love the look of tumbler quilts – especially with a monochromatic colour palette!

  44. Jan Mueller says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt but have ALWAYS wanted to! This template looks fabulous. And of course if I don’t win I will be buying it! I just won a “Crossroads” mini Charm pack at my LQS and would love to make a “mini” charm quilt out of it! Thank you for a great giveaway!

  45. loula says:

    No, I have never made a tumbler quilt, but would like to. I like scrappy.

  46. Charlene S says:

    I have made one tumbler quilt using the Accucut. As to which Moda fabric line to use, it is impossible to choose. I keep changing my mind as I see a new view.

  47. Jodi says:

    I love the new Honeysweet from Fig Tree. I haven’t seen it in our LQS yet, but hopefully soon.

  48. Jennifer M says:

    I see a cute Tumbler Crumbler quilt for the 1st time in my near future! I love new tools and templates and the Crumbler is so darn cute! “When” I make my 1st Crumbler quilt I think the Moda Island Sun batiks would be just the perfect burst of color to make this quilt beautiful.

  49. Carla says:

    I have never made a crumbler tumbler quilt. Your templates would make it so easy.

  50. Elizabeth says:

    Thanks for the crumbler inspiration. I’d give it a go with the Spring House charm packs I have waiting… I like the mini you did & then framed.

  51. I’ve made one tumbler quilt top from s layer cake. I ended up making my own template from the cardboard that came with it. I’d love to have options for a mini. Thanks!

  52. Thimbleanna says:

    Bravo Ms. Carrie! Your templates look fantastic. I’ve never made a tumbler quilt, but I have the fabric all lined up for one. I’d love to make on in High Street!

  53. Terri U says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt but this blog sure makes it look easy.

  54. I’ve never made one but it sure looks easy with these templates. I think it would look great with Paris Flea Market!

  55. Kristy says:

    I have never made a TUMBLER CRUMBLER quilt because they looked too hard, but with that ruler it would be a breeze. I have my eye on the new APRIL SHOWERS coming out, and think it would look gorgeous in my quilt.

  56. Deb says:

    I made a tumbler pillow with leftover scraps from a quilt I made using Sweetwater’s Reunion fabric. It was super fun piecing the blocks and quilting was fun, too. If I were to be a winner, I think I would love to make a low volume quilt also – maybe from Fig Tree Quilts fabrics or Thimbleblossoms!

  57. I’ve never made one, but I’d love to try one with 30s Playtime!

  58. quilter says:

    I haven’t used the tumbler but I would use my civil war scraps to make a lap quilt. Love that purse!

    gyates625@bellsouth.net

  59. Thank you for the opportunity to win these great items. I would love to try something new and a tumbler quilt fits the bill! I have a mess of fabric that these would work great on!

  60. JoanG says:

    I’ve made one tumbler quilt with no repeats on the fabric. It would be fun to make some more. I love the idea of being able to vary the size of the tumblers. I’d love to win these rulers.

  61. Barb says:

    I’ve yet to make a tumber, er crumber, quilt, but I really like the look of them. You can make them scrappy or with coordinated fabrics – fun, fun!

  62. Rosa says:

    I have made one tumbler lap quilt using plastic template and scraps fabrics.I`d love to play with your rulers!

  63. Kate says:

    Fun! I have not made a tumbler quilt yet but it has been on my to-do list! Fabric? Scrumptious maybe? Wren and Friends? Choices!

  64. I have not made a tumbler quilt, but I like the look of them. And your templates! with options! so neat! I would use Zen Chic’s new collection, Barcelona. Because I love orange and teal. 😀

  65. Mary says:

    I’d love to do this quilt. The ruler looks great. I have lots of French General scraps from several collections and think they would look great in a tumbler quilt. Thanks for the chance to win!

    Mary

  66. Debra B. says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt but love the look, any moda fabrics would look good using tumblers.

  67. I haven’t made a tumbler quilt, but it’s on my sewing to-do list (much more fun than my housework to-do list). I would use either High Street or Scrumptious.

  68. I have never made a Tumbler quilt. And I think a Tumbler would look awesome in French General fabrics. I love the warm colors. Thanks!

  69. sandra says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt, but winning a set of rulers would definitely change that! Thanks for the giveaway!

  70. I made a tumbler quilt30 years ago with a cardboard template. Can’t wait to try this template

  71. Jeanie says:

    I’ve never made one, although I have always liked the pattern. I’d make one out of Happy Go Lucky. Thanks for the giveaway!

  72. Brenda says:

    I have no made a quilt out of tumblers yet but I would love to. I really like the Scrumptious line or the Midwinter Reds would be nice too. I love those polka dot habdles.

  73. Gwen says:

    I have yet to make a crumbler quilt, but it is on my bucket list. Kansas
    troubles lines are my colors so I would go with those to make a quilt.

  74. Kim says:

    I’m almost finished a mini tumbler quilt! I’m a big fan of Kathy Schmitz and have a lot of her fabric. I think I’d make a bag like you showed out of a variety of her fabrics!

  75. CaitlinT says:

    I’ve never made one, but my mom and friends have all made beautiful tumblers and I need to join them in the fun! I love batiks so I would use the dreamcatcher batik collection!

  76. Margaret says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt but have always wanted to. I just didnt know what size ruler to buy so I just put them on my wish list. Maybe I will win this one. Thanks for sharing your tutorial.

  77. Melanie says:

    Hi There! Thank you for the great give-a-way!
    I have never made a tumbler before, but as I looked at the Moda fabric options, I realized how versatile the pattern is! You can make a Christmas quilt, a baby quilt, boy or girl quilt all depending upon your fabric selection. I really like that because not all patterns are as adaptable. After much debate I decided that if I one the set I would make a tumbler quilt out of Gelato. It’s a colour scheme I’ve never used before and it would be fitting to use it with a pattern I’ve never used before! Thank you!

  78. debra says:

    I have not yet attempted a tumbler quilt – I dont know why- guess to busy making civil war quilts and scrappy ones. I would love to make one after seeing the tutorial on the template tooo easy thanks for the chance to win

  79. heddomarie says:

    I have never made a tumbler but always wanted too. I’m dying to get my hands on the scrumptious fabric.

  80. Carrie — this is another example of why I LOVE everything you do! Amazing.
    I have never made a Crumbler quilt because I, too, wanted to make it a mini mini (saw one from a lady in Sweden or Germany that was stunning.)
    I am longing to make one out of Paris Flea Market collection. Right??! Exactly.

  82. Mom Quilter says:

    I started a “crumbler” quilt but gave it to a friend that was having a rough time to finish. Not sure if she did. I definitely have it on my list to make. Jo Anna

  83. Lee Ann L. says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt; but, I would love to try. Just a little intimidated because it’s not exactly straight (like squares and rectangles) and I want everything perfect (corners matching). LOL. Thank you for a chance to win.

  84. I have made a tumbler miniature quilt with a 1″ template. Would love to make a larger one for Newborns In Need. Winning the template would be awesome.

  85. Melinda says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt and should have my head examined for even contemplating another project but I would love to try this! I’m torn between the Christmas fabrics and the Reproduction fabrics…either would be awesome!

  86. Rolyn says:

    Hello there Rosie! You look fabulous on that quilt! I have never made a tumbler quilt but would love to. Maybe a full size and also a mini. I think Over the Rainbow Batiks or PB&J or Aspen Frost or Boho would make a great tumbler design.

  87. Amber says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt before but I have pinned some super cute ones that I would love to make. I’m loving the Baby Jane collection and think it would look adorable in tumblers.

  88. Carla says:

    Yes! I made a tumbler quilt out of Lucy’s crab shack. So cute. I think Road 15 would be my next one. Thanks

  89. Kitty says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt but would love to! Especially with your rulers 🙂 I would make one with my Road 15 charm pack with a linen solid in between. Thanks for the giveaway!

  90. I have neve made a tumbler but I think it would look great with High Street.

  91. Doreen B says:

    I made a tiny thimble quilt using paper piecing. Turned out great. I would love to try the crumbler templates to make a scrappy bag or quilt. Thanks for the chance to win.

  92. Vicki H says:

    I haven’t made a tumbler quilt yet. I would like mine to be scrappy so I could work out of my stash.

  93. Mary says:

    I love the smaller template, especially. Have made a tumbler throw, but I think I need to make a crumbler. 🙂

  94. free indeed says:

    I’ve not made a tumbler quilt before primarily because I don’t have a template, but they are something I want to make sometime. I think Moda’s Mama Said Sew would make a wonderfully chic modern quilt with tumblers.

  95. Sonia B says:

    What great ideas. I know I’ve cut out tumblers before, but I’m trying to remember what I used them for. I have a stack of Happy Go Lucky that would make a gorgeous tumbler quilt. Thanks for the chance.

  96. These have been on my wish list for a while–love all the projects made with Crumblers!

  97. Would love to win and make a crumbler quilt

  98. Cindy says:

    I have never made a Tumbler Quilt, I would make one out of the new Giggles fabric line for my step – granddaughter….

  99. Just love the tote and hope to win so it can happen!

  100. Tracy says:

    I have not made a tumbler quilt but sure would love those Crumblers! I would make something from Scrumptious!

  101. Lisa C says:

    Dying to make that little tote bag! Where can we find the red polka dot handles? So cute 🙂

  102. Melanie says:

    I have made tumbler table toppers. And I love the look. I wish there was a tumbler template made at just the right angle so you could match the side seams even.

  103. dara disman says:

    I need the tumbles, Just started quilting and don’t have one yet, Please I need it. Thanks for the chance to win. Good luck to all….

  104. Unknown says:

    I made a tumbler quilt for charity last year and it was a fun way to use lots of variety of scraps, plus it turned out so cute. The little one is so cute, and now on my wish list.

  105. Ellie says:

    I’ve been wanting to make a “crumbler” quilt – the only thing keeping me from doing so was the lack of a template! I would love to make it from either Sunnyside or In From the Cold – of course, Russian Traditions could look REALLY cool too!

  106. Tiff Blakey says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt. I want to. It’s on my ever growing list of quilts I want to make. I’d make one out of Soho Chic.

  107. Gloria says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt but I think the Cinnamon Spice fabrics I have in my stash would make a good one!

  108. Islandgirl says:

    I made one thimble quilt over 20years ago – itty bitty thimbles – little quilt. Would love to make another one – this tool would sure make it easier! I think that I would like to play with the Half Moon Modern Zig Zags collection….very modern!

  109. Janelle says:

    I almost can’t believe I don’t have this. I have one tumbler template, but love the idea of having size options. The little one is adorable and would be easier to hold onto than a tiny template!
    I’m also totally in love with that fig tree quilt!!

  110. Christina says:

    I haven’t made a tumbler/crumbler quilt yet, but it’s been on my to-do list for a few years now. I would probably choose “Joy Batik” (the yummy Christmas-themed batik line), “Over the Rainbow” (another beautiful batik line), “30s Playtime”, or “Historical Blenders” to use with these templates. It would also be a perfect birthday present, since my birthday is tomorrow (September 26)!

  111. Just recieved some sunnyside and would love to tumble, crumble this fabric. I haven’t made a tumbler before.

  112. Susan Paxton says:

    I love Tumbler quilts but have never made one. I love flowers and roses in particular so I would probably use a romantic flowery fabric and Moda makes the best fabric.

  113. I have never made one —but I have been dreaming of them for a while now. I would us scrumptious because it is scrumptious! I would make a lap quilt just for me–yah!

  114. Christine S says:

    I have made 3. I was just thinking the other day that I wish I had something besides the regular 5 inch template. Want to make a low volume in about 4 in blocks, so this is great!!

  115. I would love to try this. You make it look easy.. Thank you for sharing.

  116. Deb says:

    I love your Tumbler purse. I would love to make one of those if I win. I would, most likely, make it out of Marmalade. I have a layer cake of that. Although, I also really like Avalon. I have never made a Tumbler quilt, but it sure looks fun.

  117. JANET says:

    I have yet to make a tumbler quilt. It is on my bucket list. If I were to make it soon, I would use the Sweet Serenade line.

  118. debbowers says:

    I think a crumbler using Posh Pumpkins would be so cute!

  119. BJ says:

    Love this template & quilt.

  120. Joyce says:

    have never made a tumbler quilt but sure hope too

  121. Chris says:

    What’s not to like about an opportunity to win rulers?
    I need an excuse to buy the new Sweetwater fabrics Road 15 …wouldn’t that make cute crumbles!?

  122. Kim M says:

    I haven’t made a tumbler quilt yet but I love the look of them and this ruler would make it so much easier! I’d love to make a tumbler quilt with Sunnyside! 🙂

  123. Paula says:

    Love the template!

  124. Cindy Mizer says:

    I want to make one-I love the look. I love the Seascapes fabric line.

  125. Lynda says:

    I started a tumbler quilt using charm pack leftovers, then ran out of squares just about the time my granddaughter needed a new blanket for her latest AG doll – it worked out great for the dolls blanket

  126. Mary says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt but definitely will if I win the Crumblers. I like to mix my fabrics rather than using just one collection. I like variety.

  127. robin says:

    a tumbler quilt is on THE LIST! I would love to have helpful rulers!

  128. Becky_Sharp says:

    Love tumbler quilts! Those rulers would be so helpful in making my own!

  129. Libby says:

    I have never made a tumbler (Crumbler) quilt ~ Would love to do one out of Icicle Kisses from Kansas Troubles. Love this!

  130. Nana Jo says:

    Great ruler. They would be a great starting point for one of my quilts where I had to make larger wedges than these.

  131. Nan V. says:

    I love your new templates – it makes me nuts to have to keep buying new ones every time I want a different size. I’d love to win a set!

  132. Jean says:

    I love the look of traditional one-block patterns done up in cheerful modern fabrics, but have never made one. It would be awesome to win these templates! I would love to make a crumbler quilt in Scrumptious, happy Go Lucky, or Giggles!

  133. imsewn says:

    Fabulous! Wish I’d had this ruler when we had tumbler as our task of the month for our border challenge class! Looks great, I would use this ruler with Midwinter Reds for a cozy Christmas quilt. Thanks !

  135. jackie says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler block but I think it would look so cure in happy go lucky.

  136. Ann in NC says:

    I haven’t made a tumbler quilt. With the help of you and Rosie, it just might be duable to make a crumbler! Your little bag is great!!! Love the fabrics! As for a moda fabric, there are lots of good ones, but how about batiks from Laundry Basket.

  137. carolann says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt, but my new favorite line is Sunnyside by Kate Spain, so that is what I would use! carolann427@aol.com

  138. Karen Dobbs says:

    I’ve never made a Crumbler quilt, but after seeing your post, I’d love to do so. Your handbag looks so happy in the Scrumptious fabrics. I’d like to make one. I’m thinking maybe out of a French General collection. Thank you for the opportunity to win a set of your tumbler templates. Love your designs!

  139. Never don a tumbler. Like that you can vary the width of the piece

  140. maggi says:

    I can see how crumblers could be addictive! Love the look of the pieced quilts.

  141. lisa says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt but would love to make one using the Josephine fabric collection.

  142. Candace says:

    A tumbler quilt is on my try the pattern list. Would love to have a set. Thanks

  143. Linda says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt but have long admired them. I would love to make a mini for a doll bed out of Kansas Troubles Sweet Pea. I have several precuts from that line. Thank you for the opportunity and I will be on the lookout for these templates.

  144. I haven’t made a tumbler quilt yet but have an ides for one. I would use Midwinter Reds in it, I am in love with that line!

  145. Jacklynn says:

    My first tumbler project, a table runner, was using your large crumbler and a charm pack. I am currently working on a larger tumbler quilt, using tumblers cut with my Accuquilt Go. I would love to win the small one, I think your tote bag is great! Thanks for the give away!

  146. Jan says:

    I have not yet made a tumbler quilt but it is on my “bucket list”. I would love to use one of the fabric lines from Laundry Basket quilts or from Samndy Klop.

  147. Kay says:

    I have not made a tumbler quilt yet, but sure have plans to. I’ve been seeing them all over the internet & can’t wait to make one. I would make mine out of Mid-Winter Reds.

  148. Sewbusy says:

    I just love the look these tumblers give to the purse, lots of color but very classy!

  149. Susan says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt…If I were to make one, I’d use either High Candy or Scrumptious. Thank you for a chance to win a set of the rulers!

  150. Nita says:

    Looks like this little tool would make sewing a tumbler much less intimidating and I’d be willing to try if I had the right template.

  151. Oh yeah, another last minute person! Glad to know I’m in good company because I’m exactly the same way. No, I’ve never made a tumbler quilt, but it is one that’s on my to-do list. Had thought about using the GO! dies, but like you said, there’s only two size variations with those. I love the tiny tumblers and would probably start with that one were I to win a set of these rulers. I’d use fabrics by Sweetwater. I love their stuff!

  152. Rose Smith says:

    Ooh, these templates look great. I haven’t made a Tumbler, or a Crumbler quilt, but they look lovely. I think if I was luck enough to win, I’d use my Moda Posy Charm packs that I have stashed away to make a quilt.

  153. Miss Rosie looks so happy! I have not made a tumbler quilt yet. I have ideas for some projects and would love to use some Road 15 fabric….big fan of Sweetwater fabrics. I like the size versatility of your Crumblers. Thank you for sharing! anglanouette at gmail dot com

  154. I have made a Tumbler quilt using my Go cutter to cut the shapes but as you mention the size choices are large and smaller. Would use these templates to make a scrappy quilt and my 1.5″ strips.

  155. janice says:

    I have not made a tumbler quilt yet, but i have been keeping my eye out for just the right tools. Look like I found it. For a fabric choice I would love to do it in Winter’s Lane.

  156. Chiska says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt, but I love the look of them. I have been a little intimidated by them, so thanks for the encouragement! I’d probably use Wee Folks as I some at the moment. Thanks so much for the chance!

  157. Marie Chat says:

    I’ve bought the small tumbler template but have yet to make one yet. I do like the idea of yours being more flexible to use with both strips and size of tumbler. I think I’d like to make one from Honeysweet. Thanks!

  158. Sharon Dawn says:

    Love this pattern! The would be really helpful tools to get one cut.

  159. lovetoquilt says:

    I have never used the templates, but I have made a tumbler quilt. I made it out of 4-5″ charm packs…can’t remember whose!!! And it turned out beautiful! Would love to use your templates and make it out of Scrumptious, Giggles or Barcelona! Thanks for the chance!

  160. emmy says:

    Have not made an tumbler quilts, but the versatility of your templates will certainly make it easy. Thank you for the giveaway.

  161. Carrie P. says:

    I have made a tiny tumbler wall hanging long time ago. If I was to make another one I would use some French General fabrics.

  162. I really like tumbler quilts – even have one in my etsy shop. If I was the lucky winner I would select the Moda Marmalade fabric by Bonnie and Camille — love it – thanks #!}

  163. GranChris says:

    I have made a Tumbler Quilt but what I was better at was using Tumbler blocks for borders.

  164. Anita says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt, but I would like to! Scrumptious would be a nice line to make it from.

  165. I have never made a tumbler quilt myself. Two ladies in my guild made scrap tumbler quilts with the smallest of pieces (1 1/2″ finished). I am not quite that ambitious! Happy Go Lucky would be a wonderful fabric line to use.

  166. EllenB says:

    I made a small tumbler with a traced plastic template, which never fit together right. These templates and Joy Batik would make a grand holiday quilt.

  167. Tumbler piecing looks like the most interesting way to use up scraps, a task that would be a good thing in my quilting room. I have lots of scraps and lots that match so perhaps a tote would be a good start. Thanks for the explanation and the opportunity.

  168. Judy Ann says:

    I have not made a tumbler project but I would love to and these rulers look great! I love Farmer’s MArket and Baby Jane from Moda.

  169. VickiT says:

    I have not made a tumbler quilt yet, but do have that on my list to make. I wanted to make one for each of my Grandchildren using different fabrics for each.

    I think using American Jane’s School Day’s fabrics would be super cute for a tumbler quilt for a Grandchild, or any child.

  170. betty drake says:

    I have made a small tumbler quilt but mine were almost square. I would love to try this with Laundry Basket Quilt’s “Paint Box” fabric.
    bettydrake1@gmail.com

  171. Kim Q says:

    Wow…I thought I wanted to make a tumbler quilt one day, but I think I’d much rather make a Crumbler! I love the size options, that’s great. Thanks for the chance to win. 😉

  172. paigeg says:

    I love your crumbler! I am just learning to quilt and this looks like one I could actually complete! I have very few rulers/template and would love to win these. If not I know what my next purchase is. 🙂 thank you for the chance to win them…..

  175. I have. Using a cardboard template made from a cereal box. I made a table runner for myself. WHEN(!) I win, I would make a lap quilt for myself out of Wishes (by Sweetwater – due out in January). Thanks for the chance!

  176. Sheryl says:

    I bought a table runner kit with the tumblers already cut. It is not made yet. I would make something out of Count Down to Christmas by the Sweetwater gals. I bought a bunch of that fabric because I like it soooo much.

  177. Judith says:

    I would love to try a tumbler quilt! I love your fabric selections and I love Rosie. She reminds me of my Abby. I just got a Honey Sweet layer cake…would be perfect!

  178. Heidi says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt but I would probably make it out of something by Sweetwater or Bonnie and Camille. Love their stuff!

  179. I’ve never made a tumbler quilt, but that’s what would be on the very top of my list if I’m the lucky winner. Thanks a bunch for the chance! My collection of Moda Sweet Potato Pie really needs to come out and “crumble”. 😀

  181. Mom C says:

    I haven’t tried a tumbler quilt yet. It looks like this has been my year for HST and flying geese. But I think it could be stunning out of Barcelona or I have some Kate Spain that is calling to be used. I love all the options you mentioned. Thanks.

  182. Rosemary says:

    I love the tumbler quilts but haven’t made one … til now! Just have been waiting for this ruler! Perfect! Perfect! Perfect! Thanks so much for the opportunity. Now I just have to decide which fabric! /sigh 😉

  183. Denniele says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt…yet! I would make it in something bright and cheerful.

  184. Irene Olsen says:

    I love the scrappy lo0ok of this tumbler quilt and that purse is too cute! Pick me!!

  185. diane s says:

    Your tumbler templates are awesome. The small one would be great in reproduction fabrics and the larger one in Laundry Basket or French General line. A lot of options with the different size tumblers the rulers create.

  186. Linda says:

    HI! NEAT RULERS!
    I’VE NEVER USED THESE,BUT IF I DID I’D CHOOSE “DELIGHTED” AS THE FABRIC!
    THANKS FOR SHARING!

    msstitcher1948@yahoo.com

  187. craftytammie says:

    I just love that scrumptious bag at the end! I’ve never made a tumbler quilt but I’d love to!

  188. IaTexGal says:

    I have never made a Tumbler Quilt, but was immediately drawn to the beautiful quilt that Rosie was laying on! I would love to WIN the Tumbler/Crumbler Templates, and I would use my collection of soft Moda prints for this timeless pattern! Your story was such a great inspiration! Thank You!

  189. Piecepatcher says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt. I have Hello Luscious waiting….

  190. I’ve never made a tumbler quilt but have always wanted to. I even have some pre-cut ones languishing in a drawer somewhere… These crumblers look like just the thing though! I think I might also be persuaded to cut into my Fig Tree hoard, I mean stash.

  191. Barbara McD says:

    I have never made a crumbler/tumbler quilt, but I sure would like to try! I would probably use one of the Collections for a Cause (or maybe more than one of them! They would probably play well together!!)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  192. I’ve not made a tumbler quilt and would make it from The Boo Crew

  193. Joanna says:

    I’ve made one tumbler quilt that is in the UFO pile to be quilted. If I won your Crumblers I would first use the small ruler and would love to make a quilt in Sweet Pea. I love your Crumbler quilts.

  194. Gill says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt – I’d love to make one from Road 15!

  195. Dyann Cox says:

    I have some reproduction print Jelly Rolls that need a home and a crumbler quilt would be just the ticket! I have had a crumbler on my bucket list and this is the inspiration I have been needing :). Love your multi size templates, they would do nicely in my sewing room!

  196. A tumbler quilt is on my bucket list and I’d like to get started soon. I have a fat eighth bundle of Icicle Kisses that I’d start with. I can imagine it might be addicting.

  197. Pinspot says:

    I’ve never made one, and I think I’d use my stack of Dear Mr. Claus. Fussy cut Santas would be pretty cute.

  198. Cheri says:

    I have made a tumbler quilt, using a template made for charm squares. I made it from Lucy’s Crab Shack, and although simple, it’s my favorite quilt. I’d love to make one with tiny tumblers using Honeysweet.

  199. Judy says:

    I’ve never made a Tumbler Quilt. I would use the new line from Bonnie and Camille called April Showers and I bet that bag would look awesome with this line!

  200. Nope, I have never made a tumbler quilt~~yet!! It is on my one-day-when-I-am-caught-up list. I think it would look great in Scrumptious or any Fig Tree line… gee, once I got started I might have to make many! Thanks for the fun!

  201. Julie Crooks says:

    I’ve made a mini-tumbler taggie blanket for a baby with the leftover flannel scraps from a rag quilt I made her. It was lots of fun!

    I would use the Giggles collection for a quilt – for myself – because I always make stuff for gifts!

  202. I haven’t made a tumbler quilt yet. I would use Midwinter Reds or Grant Park.

  203. Lisa says:

    Yes a tumbler mini quilt! I would use “Simply Style” by Vanessa Christensen of V and Co. Would love the rulers so awesome!

  204. elively says:

  205. Sherill says:

    What a great tool! I have a tumbler on my to do list! It would look great in Sassy.

  206. Deb says:

    I have never made a tumbler kit, but I have enough scraps to make a few of them…I think I’d use Happy Go Lucky. Love reading your blog.

  207. terrieannie says:

    I started working on a Halloween tumbler wall hanging MANY years ago, but I was doing it by hand and never did finish it….
    HowEVER, if I was a lucky winner of these crumblers, I think I would pull out one of my Kaffe Fassett rolls and make a table runner to brighten up my coffee table for starters. The possibilities are endless!

  208. always want to and i would use happy go lucky, thanks

  209. Abbigail says:

    I’m like so many other…never made one but always wanted to! In fact I have been collecting assorted charm packs (most are from Moda over several years) Sure glad you mentioned about lining them up correctly I sure wouldn’t have thought of that!

  210. Sandy D says:

    No I have never made a tumbler quilt. I was not sure I liked it until I see the one made of beiges. I would do one in the beiges.Now I do. With the tempplate it looks very easy.

  211. I’ve never made a tumbler quilt, but I’ve had it on my list to make one from A Walk in the Woods layer cake that I’ve been saving. Thanks for the chance to win!

    I made a small tumbler flag wall- hanging but I would really love to make a large tumbler quilt. Moda Midwinter Reds would make a beautiful quilt…I just LOVE red. 🙂

  217. Patti says:

    Oh I would love to win the rulers. Thanks for the chance. Patti

  218. I made a tumbler quilt recently from a charm pack of Scottie material. It turned out great and was so easy to put together. It would be great to have a template with different sizes – what a great idea! I’d love to do something with Paris Flea Market jelly roll that I have…Judy R from Buffalo

  219. I have never made a tumble quilt ,but sure would be fun to give it a try with with some of those little moda candy squares! They are so cute! or that cute cute hand bag! Love that one! Fingers crossed!

    Have never made a tumbler quilt. Think I’d use Spring House by Stephanie Ryan. Love the muted colours

    I have not made a tumbler quilt, but would love to use up some of my stash on one!

    Love your Crumblers! I’ve never made one but I have fabric all set for one 🙂 thanks for he giveaway!

  230. Wendy B says:

    I made a table runner for a swap using a 5″ tumbler…it was quick and very highly addictive!!! I can see lots of potential for many different combinations that I’d love to try……I think I’d just have to use Fig Tree’s Honeysweet….how gorgeous would that look as a bed quilt?!

  231. Fran says:

    I love the name “Crumbler” it sounds delicious!! Making a tumbler quilt is definitely on my to do list. I am a fairly new follower and I am really enjoying the blog!

  232. SHALEEN says:

    I have made a Red Solo Cup tumbler quilt and am making a scrappy tumbler from scrappy Candy 2 1/2″ squares. I would use Kate Spain’s Out of the Cold collection to make another tumbling quilt.

    I haven’t made a tumbler project yet, but I think they are adorable! I would love to use High Street for this project! Thanks so much for the chance to win these rulers!

  238. bairdmtn says:

    Never have made a tumbler quilt but I have made a 1000 Pyramids Quilt-queen size-and cut each triangle by hand! What a JOB!! Would love to have the template because the job would be MUCH easier! I have 4 Marmalade charm packs just waiting on me to make something beautiful with them…..this is IT!!!!

  239. Debbie says:

    I haven’t made a tumbler quilt yet, but you make it look so easy, I will have to try it!

  240. linny298 says:

    I would love my first tumbler quilt to be made with the Crumbler templates. Hmmm, maybe I can use the Moda Blush by Basic Grey that I’ve been stashing for awhile!

  241. KMSC says:

    I haven’t made a tumble quilt yet, but I certainly will if I win your tumbler set! I would use Scrumptious by Bonnie & Camille to make my tumbler quilt! Thanks for the giveaway!

    Oh my, I had no idea you and Monique were in cahoots with rulers! Lol. I have never made a tumbler quilt but I will!
    I like the new Collection for a Cause.
    I enjoy your blog!

  243. I have made several baby tumbler quilts from a 5 inch tumbler thingy. Would love to have different sizes. I am the proud owner of several Moda candy sets.

  244. This is a great template – so many possibilities!

  245. selleck says:

    No, I have never made a tumbler quilt and I would like to. I am crazy about any French General fabric but if I have to pick one, I’d say Rouenneries. Thanks for the giveaway.

  246. Cathy says:

    Mid-Winter Reds, I’m in love with Mid-Winter Reds! Though I like your Crumbler quilts in all neutrals, I could do that too. I’ve also seen a nifty idea, where two crumbler pieces are cut from the same print and sewn together so they have the shape of a lava lamp, very cool.

  247. I love quilting tools and these rulers look like they should belong in my collection. I’d try tumbler quilt using my scraps of both prints and solids…mostly the Moda fabric because they is my favorite. Thanks for offering these rulers as a give away.

  248. Lynn H says:

    Love tumblers and these templates look wonderful!

  249. Rachelle says:

    I’ve not made a tumbler quilt before, but I would use Marmalade by Bonnie and Camille

  250. Laura B says:

    I might want to try it with some neutrals of various shades.

  251. I have made a tumbler quilt and it was fun and turned out great! I don’t have a specific Moda line that I am crazy about right now … seems like their latest is always my favorite! I do love shirtings though and have a HUGE stash that I would incorporate with perhaps some fabrics by Kansas Troubles … I think that would look great! Fun contest … thanks for the chance to win!

  252. These tools make it look so easy. They are great and would be wonderful to own and make a Crumbler Quilt.

  253. Allison C says:

    Never made one before, but would love to make one with Lush Uptown.

  254. Jennifer says:

    I haven’t made a tumbler quilt yet, but I have some Noteworthy stashed and waiting for a great quilt and I think that’s what I’d use to make it.

  255. I haven’t made one yet but when I do, I’d use my scraps which have a lot of French General by Moda.

  256. JulieD says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt, but can’t wait to try.

  257. scottylover says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt but it is on my “to do” list. I’ve been looking for a ruler to try. These would be perfect!

  258. Julia says:

    I’ve made a tumbler table runner. I would use Scrumptious with a bit of Happy Go Lucky, Bliss, and Ruby mixed in if I were making a tumbler quilt. Thanks for the chance to win!

    I have made a couple of tumbler quilts. One was a baby quilt made using a charm pack, and the other was a full-size quilt made from fat quarters of Kansas Troubles fabric. I would to make one with the two sizes and use Minick and Simpson’s new red and cream collection. Wouldn’t that be yummy!

  260. I have started a 1″ tumbler using EPP. Would love to try these rulers using the Giggles line.

  261. I haven’t made a tumbler quilt yet, but your instructions make it look easy. I hope I win!

  262. This comment has been removed by the author.

  263. I don’t have these tumbler pieces, something else, but if I did I would use some Nicey Jane that I have been hording!! Thank you for the pattern.

  264. DeborahGun says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt but would love to have a go using Scrumptious!

  265. Emily C says:

    I haven’t made one, but it would love lovely in Honeysweet.

  266. Andrea Boltz says:

    I would make a quilt using a Moda Boho jelly roll!

  267. Susan P says:

    I’ve never made a tumber! Now would be a good time to start. I’m loving Vin du Jour and Honeysweet and Scrumptious! Keeping fingers crossed!

  268. Love tools, especially those that can be used multiple times

  269. sunny5597 says:

    Love this beautiful quilt, I would love to win the Crumbler and the The Lil’ Crumbler rulers. I have not attempted to make a tumbler/crumbler quilt yet. I really like the Kansas Troubles from Moda. I have purchased the layer cake in that collection and some extra fabrics to make a bedspread for the master bedroom in our home. Maybe this would be great to use for my first Crumbler quilt! 🙂

  270. kshackabq says:

    Nope, have never made a tumbler quilt. But looking at all these options, I’m greatly tempted. I think the Scrumptious fabric made up beautifully in the tumbler/crumbler design. Thanks for all the info, and the chance to win. And Rosie looks just swell, sitting there smiling on that gorgeous crumbler quilt!

  271. Janarama says:

    I never made a tumbler quilt because I don’t have the ruler for one yet. A tumbler quilt would look great using Giggles.

  272. Deb says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt..but what great tool! It looks so easy….I would use seascapes by DebStrain..if I could find it!

  273. Helen Tulip says:

    I haven’t made a tumbler quilt either, but this looks like a great take along project for hand piecing too, I love that, Helen

  274. luv2quilt says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler (crumbler) quilt. I would love to use Civil War fabrics.

  275. A Tumbler quilt is on my “quilting bucket list” so these templates would be absolutely perfect! I am mostly a scrappy quilter so seeing your examples of projects made with these rulers have really excited me. I foresee a tumbler quilt project in my near future…lol

    quilty hugs, Debbie

  277. Never made a Tumbler, but I’d like to. I have some treasured French General Maison de Garrance I’d love to use.
    Thank you!

  278. I have never made a tumbler quilt and would love to try your crumbler template to make one. I think it would look nice using fabric from the Me and My Sister’s Designs Hubba Hubba collection.

    Patti

  279. justasiam says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt, but they are really beautiful. I would use the Wren Friends collection!

  280. kathy says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt, however, I have been looking for a template. It is a pattern that is on my bucket list. I think I would choose Fig Tree Quilts “Honey Sweet” line.

  281. Nancy in IN says:

    I haven’t made a tumbler quilt, but love the idea of using precuts. Thanks for the idea. Sounds like a mini quilt is in my future.

  282. Vickie says:

    I made a table runner once but not a tumbler quilt. It was fun and easy.

  283. Elizabeth says:

    I haven’t made a tumbler quilt yet, but would love to give it a try! I would probably use Scrumptious also as I love that line and it would give me an excuse to buy more fabric. 🙂

  284. linafha says:

    No, I haven’t made a tumblers quilt before, but with the explanation, the pictures and the “New Ruler” I think it will go well. I would like to make my younger daughter a messenger bag. She just started college, and she will need it to carry her books and laptop around. A messenger bag would come handy! I have a Honeysweet charm pack that I had bought just to make her something with. I would like to use.

  285. Kathy says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt before but have admired them. I like Moda’s High Street collection. So pretty!

  286. Sally in WA says:

    I have never Crumbled or made a tumbler quilt yet. But I like the pattern. I have just the Moda charm pack to do it…a couple of leftover Blueberry Crumb Cakes! I think it would be fun to make so I hope I win the rulers. Thanks for the opportunity!

  287. Jean in AZ says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt, mainly because of not having a template. Miss Rosie’s are perfect. I would love to win a set and use Moda PB&J. jgrinaz@gmail.com

  288. Barbara H says:

    I’ve never made a Tumbler quilt but these would definitely inspire me to make one of these beautiful quilts! For my first Tumbler quilt, I would use Texas Lone Star fabric by Moda.

  289. Pamela says:

    I have made a tumbler quilt (using die-cuts from an Accu-Quilt machine). I’d love to make one from In From the Cold by Kate Spain!

  290. Kay in NJ says:

    Like everyone else I would love to have a set of these! I can see lots of blocks made from string sets out of the scrap bin alternated with solids to make great baby quilts, charity quilts, etc. The versatility is amazing.

  291. KT says:

    I love these and have been thinking of buying them. I am not sure of the line, I would have to dig through my stash

  292. I’ve never made a Tumbler quilt. Moda has so many great collections, it’s hard to chose just one. I think I’d like to use the fat quarter bundle of California Girl in a Tumbler quilt.

  293. Applikaye says:

    I can’t wait to try out these tumblers on a stash of Moda candy.

  294. BizyStitches says:

    I’ve made one tumbler block quilt of red/white/blue. It was a lot of cutting. Love how you showed mixed sizes. Thanks for the fun. Oh and I would use any Moda fabric they are all beautiful. I’ve never seen an ugly fabric yet. LOL

  295. SHARON ZISOS says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt before but with the templates it looks achievable.
    Sharon

  296. Michele T says:

    I would love to make my first ever tumbler quilt project… big or small! Scrumptious is nice and cheery so I’d choose it to make something (that pillow cover is a great idea!!!)

  297. Karen says:

    I have not made a tumbler quilt. I would use Minick and Simpson’s Mid-Winter Reds.

  298. Shelley says:

    Hi Carrie! Wonderful post. Love the new templates and your books! I’d like to cut up some of my Kaffe stash I’ve been hoarding and make one of these tumbler quilts 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!!

  299. Laurie says:

    I love your little tutorial and I would love to make a crumbler quilt! Thank for the give away !

  300. hiyacinth says:

    Love the ruler–a new tool to create good old fashioned scrappy patchwork!

  301. Michele says:

    I have made a tumbler quilt from 1.5 inch high pieces. Your’re right– it was fun, fun.

    I have a fat eight bundle of Scrumptious that I’m savoring– could be just the thing for a crumbler quilt

  302. rebecca says:

    I have a Primitive Gatherings candy I will make a runner with. Thanks for the idea. I’ll be shopping for some companion fabric this weekend!

  303. Wendy P says:

    I have made one small Schnibble sized tumbler quilt out of cherished scraps from the last 10 years of making quilts. I wish I had your set of Crumblers to make more!

    I have a layer cake of Avalon fabrics that would be great in a large tumbler quilt!

    And happy birthday to your brother, Carrie! I have 2 friends with birthdays today also. And my grandmother turns 94 on Saturday!

  305. Helen says:

    I have not made a project using crumblers, but I’m tempted. That bag is really cute. And I love the crumbler quilt using the Fig Tree creams.

  306. Rose says:

    I haven’t made a tumbler quilt yet, but I am a fan of any Fig Tree fabric.

  307. Linda in PA says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt, but would love to. Choosing the fabric to use is a tough one. I love “Scrumptious” by Bonnie and Camille and think that it would look great. Thanks for the chance.

  308. Laurie says:

    I have not made anything with the Tumbler templates, but I’d love to make a mini quilt or a table runner with the Nature’s Christmas cady pieces I recently bought. I would probably even get it done for this Christmas!

  309. ytxrose says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt but have admired so many. Without a doubt, I’d love to use the Texas Lone Star prints, esp. after purchasing some of the fabric recently.

  310. Martina says:

    I never made one until now! I think I would use Happy goes Lucky.

  311. tumbler quilt is on my list! i keep wanting to make one, but can never decide on fabric! hmm. if i had to pick right now, i would go with posy by aneela hoey.

  312. Mary Ann says:

    I have not made a tumbler quilt but would like to. I have lots of fabric from Sunshine by April Cornell that would be perfect.

  313. Kathy M says:

    I have a tumbler ruler, whick I have not used yet, but it only cuts one size. I like the idea of being able to determine the size I would like to use. I like the High Street collection.

  314. Elizabeth says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt but this post makes it look like somthing I might be able to do!

  315. Jennifer says:

    I love tumbler quilts! Would love to try your ruler on my next one.

  316. Sharon says:

    I have made a Tumbler quilt. I didn’t have a neat ruler like the Crumbler so my husband cut one out of plexi-glass for me. It worked ok but of course it is only one size. I would use Scrumptious by Bonnie and Camille. I love their collections.

  317. Donna W says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt. Would like to use Sweet Pea to make one.

  318. LizA. says:

    I have not yet made a tumbler quilt but its definitely been on my bucket list. I love the understated, soft look of your “low volume” quilt, sigh….I think that project has just been moved to the top of my list……

  319. Judy1522 says:

    I have not made a Tumbler quilt and I would like to make one. I would use Bonnie and Camille fabric that I have.

  320. Another great read. I love the way Carrie writes. I will use these rulers on one of 8 Moda Jelly Rolls I have in my stash. But then I would love a quilt made from the new line from Camille. But then I also love Winter Reds by Minick and Simpson. So many to choose from.

  321. Deb G. in VA says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt, but you make it look super easy! I would love to use Giggles by Me and My Sister. Thanks for the chance to win!

  322. I’ve never made a tumbler/crumbler quilt. I’d love to make it with something from Me & My Sister. Too many Moda fabrics to love!

  323. Lyn says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt yet but if I did, the current Moda collection I’d use would be Bonnie & Camille’s Scrumptious.

  324. Lisas Mom says:

    Unfortunately I have never made a “Tumbler” quilt. Just need the right ruler. 🙂 I’d use Bonnie & Camille’s Marmalade fabric to make a quilt.

  325. Barbe says:

    as soon as i saw the low volume crumbler i said that’s what i want to make. the little tumblers are much more fun than just plain squares, so whether i win or not that is what i’m going to do. lol

  326. n Carter says:

    I think I would like to start with a small or mini project first – and I love Audra’s Iris Garden. Once I did a smaller tumbler I bet I would be hooked and want to make a larger one, maybe a scrappy quilt.

  327. Sallie says:

    Yes, I made a tumbler quilt for my grandson. I’d use Mindwinter reds for another one. Thanks for the giveaway!

  328. Polly says:

    First just let me say that I LOVE Rosie’s! Your shop is the BEST! I’ve never made a Crumbler, but can’t wait. And I have some fabulous leftovers from my Avalon fabrics by Fig Tree and this would be a perfect way to get the most out of them. Thank you so much for such a GREAT idea and giveaway. Fingers crossed!!!!

  329. Sarah says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt, but it looks fun! I would make mine with the Vin Du Jour collection by 3 Sisters.

  330. Mary Graff says:

    I haven’t made a tumbler quilt yet, but I’ve been collecting polka dot fabrics that would look so cute.

  331. another great ruler…………loving these posts showcasing various gadgets……….

  332. ANGIE TERRY says:

    haven’t made a tumbler quilt -yet. I’d like to use “Ticklish” or “Giggles”; they are such fun, bright collections

  333. shawn says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt but would love to try!

  335. Melissa says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt. I want April Showers fabric when it comes out.

  336. I have not made a crumbler quilt yet, but would love to. I would make my out of any fabric by Kansas Troubles or Primitive Gatherings. I love their fabrics & if I wanted to use them for gifts, they would fit in my friends homes too.

  337. Ann P says:

    Looking forward to trying the tumbler quilt. I think it will be great with the Winter Reds!

  338. Virlinda Day says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt but when I win the ruler I’ll use Indigo Crossing to make a quilt. Love your books and patterns!

  339. Carla G says:

    I’ve been wanting to make a tumbler quilt but don’t have a ruler… I’d like to use Simply Style fabric to make one. 🙂

  340. Linda says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt but the ones you have done look really nice! Will have to add this to my list. I’d like to make one from any of Bonnie and Camille’s lines of fabrics.

  341. Deb says:

    No i never have but would love to. And I’d pick any of Kate Spain’s lines.

  342. Cecilia says:

    I haven’t made a tumbler quilt, yet. When I win I would use Scrumptious by Bonnie & Camille. Thanks for the giveaway.

  343. Qltr89 says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt. When I win the Crumble templates, I will use the Breezy Batiks collection to make a tumbler quilt. Thank you for the chance to win.

  344. Lisa Rogers says:

    I haven’t made a Tumbler quilt yet. It looked too difficult to make but after today and your blog I think I can do it. Actually, I know I can do it with your Crumble templates. I would use Me and My Sister new design Giggles. Love the colors. Thank you for a chance to win!

  345. Denise says:

    these rulers would sure beat the heck out of my cardboard template! Thanks for sharing… and Rosie looks great!

  346. Denise says:

    Oh, and I would use the Winter Lane group for this fun quilt!

  347. The bag is adorable!! I have never made a tumbler quilt – looks like fun. I actually was just looking at these templates at the quilt shop last week! I had a pack of Moda candy in Odds & Ends to make into a table runner and no ideas.

  348. Maryb says:

    My stash pile is calling to have this new ruler come to our house. A tumbler quilt would be excellent for upcoming gifts. Disappointment would reign in the house if the stash pile does not win. lol!!!

  349. Dawn White says:

    This looks like so much fun! What a great way to use up scraps. That’s what I’ll do if I’m a winner. Thanks for the chance!

  350. carolg says:

    Love that Scrumptious bag! Think that must be on my to do list! XO to Rosie from Quinn t he Corgi!

  351. minivangran says:

    I would love to make a tumbler quilt!! At least one of my 8 kids or 14 grandchildren might get one!!

  352. Scrumptious because I’m obsessed right now with all things Bonnie & Camille! I’ve never made a tumbler but this tool would make it fun.

  353. Debra Reber says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler quilt (YET), but it’s on my quilting “bucket list”! I would use “giggles” (from me & my sister designs)to make a cute baby quilt (now I just need a baby granddaughter to make it for!)HINT,HINT to my kids!! But since I don’t have any grandchildren yet, I could always make a quilt for my two dogs, they hate the heat, so they would like snowman gatherings!! Debbie Reber

  354. Michelle B. says:

    I have a tumbler template but it’s true, on size….ugh….this one gives you soooo many options it’s ridiculous!! What a great template and to win TWO of them…hello…sign me up!!

  355. No, but I do want to! That and an all-triangles quilt. I’d love to use Happy Go Lucky, or Scrumptious.

  356. Jeanne Gwin says:

    “Crumbler”, well, you got my attention and I think it will stick with me. I had intentions of making a ‘tumbler’ quilt “some day” but now I want to finish all my Christmas sewing up real quick and make a “Crumbler”. I am excited. Thank you so much.

  357. gillybean says:

    I hope I win this one, I just love new rulers. I would make this with Happy-Go-Lucky by Bonnie and Camille, love their fabrics.

  358. Unknown says:

    I’ve never made a tumbler. I would use Kate Spain’s In from the Cold to make the adorable bag for my mom for Christmas!

    Field Notes would be pretty! I have made a table tumbler runner! lots of fun! thank you!

  360. Pat says:

    Wonderful tool for using up small scraps to make stunning quilts.Thank you

  361. sewing kit says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt. For that matter I am pretty new to quilting. I think a tumbler quilt would be stunning in the dreamcatcher batiks.

  362. SewLindaAnn says:

    I have never made a Tumbler quilt, but I’m always looking for easier ways to make something.

  363. bvandyke says:

    I made my first tumbler quilt this spring and loved it. I would like to try different sizes. I have a Baby Go cutter and it only cuts one size of tumblers

  364. Marca says:

    I’ve made a large size tumbler quilt, and now I’d like to make a mini!

  365. Kathryn says:

    I’ve never made a crumbler or a tumbler, but I have the stash to do it.

  366. momto1 says:

    Love everything you do. The little quilt done in the pale creamy fabrics has put me over the edge. I need to do one of these!

  367. Ann says:

    Would like to try this

  368. Béa says:

    I never made a tumbler and would choose Happy go lucky to make it. Thanks

  369. Judy Balek says:

    I have always wanted to make a tumbler quilt but they seem daunting to try to cut the tumblers. I would love this ruler and I need a couple of baby quilts, so I would be all set. Here’s hoping I win.

  370. always wanted these rulers after watching these on Rosie’s (hi Rosie!) blog.

  371. Maryjo says:

    Leave it to Carrie…another super inspiration that I need! I did make a tumber once…it was a kit and I used a cardboard template…yours will be much better. Midwinter Reds would be my choice…love the line! Thanks for the giveaway!

  372. Gina S. says:

    Never made one, but would like to try an make a pillow in Mama said sew, from Sweetwater.

  382. Debbie says:

    I love rulers, would love these to make a tumbler block for my grandson

  383. schmidt1016 says:

    I agree with you, Carrie, I like having options. Being able to use a tool the size of my scraps or strips would be so liberating. I’m sure they would get a work out in my studio!

  384. Martha says:

    I have never tried a tumbler quilt and this would be a great opportunity!

  385. Kim Carson says:

    Oooo, I would love to win these templates!
    Never made a tumbler/crumbler quilt…yet, but I’ve been looking for a while for a sturdy template to use.
    I would use the template with Moda’s Natures Christmas fabric.

  386. I’ve never made one.. I don’t have the appropriate tool, yet! But I hope this will be soon fixed 😉

    I’d like to make one from either Comma or Barcelona collections by Zen Chic. Just love them!!
    Or from one of Bonnie and Camille collections.. they are great, too.

    Thanks for the chance 🙂

  387. kbo says:

    I create a bag with the “Island Sun Batiks” and the Crumpler

  395. ShelleyJo says:

    I have never made a tumbler quilt but would love to.

  396. Peggy says:

    OMG! Love this! I’ve never made a crumbler/tumbler quilt ever, but love Miss Rosies patterns, books and Schnibbles. Have tons of all three. I would probably try this with my little moda candies first. I have 4 Metropolitan Fair Candy packs. Also have an extra Moda Aviary and a Charisma jelly roll not ear marked for anything yet. Looks like a fun way to use them. I’d love to win these templates. Many thanks for all of your creative fun stuff.

  397. Mary says:

    Thanks for the great write on your tumbler templates.
    I could play and play and play with those. I love your little framed quilts!

    Beautiful purse! I have never made a tumbler quilt, I did make a tumbler mug rug though. Great giveaway!

  399. Dawn says:

    I love tumbler tools. I made my granddaughter a play quilt this year. Can’t wait to try the mini tumbler.

  400. I’ve never made a tumbler quilt, but the Giggles line my daughter chose for her quilt would make beautiful crumbles. 🙂

  401. Marianne says:

    I’ve made a tumbler quilt, love them!

  402. I am too late to enter the drawing, but had to comment anyway. I have a Crumbler 5″ and I love the versatility of it! Your friend was very clever with the name, too.

    Miss Rosie, you are beautiful and I can tell from your smiling clown face just how much you love to lie down on those gorgeous quilts and model for the photographs. My boys do the same. It doesn’t matter if I am knitting or quilting, there are always a few Golden furs (aka DNA samples) lovingly woven into the stitches…
